For new systems the most important thing is getting the attention of third-party-developers, so it is a important question what do they think about NVIDIA´s handheld. Ubisoft´s CEO Yves Guillemot, Mark Rein co-founder of Epic Games, and the chief production officer Bill Wagner at Meteor Games are going to tell you.

Ubisoft´s CEO Yves Guillemot thoughts:
“Ubisoft is always excited about new hardware developments, and Project Shield promises to bring both mobile and PC gamers a great new gaming experience. Seeing the PC version of Assassin’s Creed III run on the device is a great example of this, and further strengthens Ubisoft’s long-standing relationship with Nvidia.”

Mark Rein co-founder of Epic Games thoughts:
“With Project Shield, Nvidia brings an uncompromising, high-performance console experience to mobile devices. Amazing games including Real Boxing and Hawken, which utilize the latest Unreal Engine technology, look fantastic on Project Shield. This is just the beginning, and we’re truly excited to see what more Unreal Engine developers will do with so much horsepower in such a compact gaming device.”

Chief production officer Bill Wagner at Meteor Games thoughts:

“Coming from the openness of a PC platform, we love how accessible Project Shield is, and the flexibility it gives gamers everywhere. Project Shield gives us the cutting-edge ability to bring a huge free-to-play PC game like Hawken to the handheld gaming audience.”
