Nvidia Corp. on Friday unveiled a brand new way of using its Shield game console. Being simple and elegant, the GameStream tech just streams video games from a GeForce GTX-based PC to a Shield-equipped large-screen TV. The technology is projected to be a part of Nvidia’s new approach of PC gaming as well as a connected gaming ecosystem.

Nvidia GameStream is a streaming technology, combining the GeForce GTX graphics cards with advanced Wi-Fi technologies of Shield game console to deliver smooth, low-latency gaming in the living room. Nvidia’s Shield should be attached to an HDTV via HDMI, pair it with a compatible Bluetooth controller, and sit back on your couch and play your PC games with GameStream. In addition to streaming PC games, the mode allows gamers to play Google Android-based games, browse the web, and watch their favorite movies at native 1080p on the big screen.

Initially, Nvidia GameStream will be available for local PC streaming, however, longer-term, it will also support Nvidia Grid cloud gaming services.

Starting on October 28, to celebrate the release of GameStream, Nvidia will offer up to $100 off Shield plus free copies of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Splinter Cell Blacklist and Batman: Arkham Origins with the purchase of select GeForce GTX graphics cards.

What's the point when Steam already has the feature, and likely does it better?

An example: I got a nice pc with a monitor in some room at home. Shield allows me to stream games wirelessly to the tv in the living room with low latency. I like the feature, but it is too expensive. Something that do the same task similar to chrome cast should be better.
