Shield Android TV

The NVIDIA Shield Android TV is receiving a firmware update to version 2.0 that allows playback of select Android games natively at 4K. Initially, 12 games are available for playback at higher resolutions, with NVIDIA working with developers to add 4K-native assets to their games.

These are the titles that can now be played in 4K:

  • Beach Buggy Racing
  • Bombsquad
  • Hardwood Solitaire IV
  • Riptide GP 2
  • Kosmik Revenge
  • Video Poker Duel
  • Leo's Fortune
  • Machinarium
  • Meltdown
  • Never Alone
  • Samurai II
  • Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders

NVIDIA shed the beta tag for its GRID game streaming service earlier this week, branding it GeForce Now. The paid service — which costs $7.99 a month — gives you unlimited access to a slew of titles, with recent launches like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt available for streaming in 1080p at 60fps.
