Chip maker Nvidia has unveiled a new games console, dubbed Project Shield, at CES 2013. The new handheld device packs in Google'€™s Android operating system, with the ability to download and play games directly from the Big G's Google Play store.

Games will also be available from Nvidia'€™s already popular Tegra Zone, an Android app which allows gamers to access titles which have optimised for devices using Nvidia'€™s Tegra processors. 

What'€™s more punters who have a PC with one of Nvidia'€™s GeForce GTX 650 graphics cards will be able to stream games directly from their machine onto the Nvidia Shield. The company also says it has plans to bring wireless video streaming to its new gaming device, allowing users to fling content snagged from Google Play directly onto their TV.
