Nvidia Shield Gets Major Update With Gamepad Touchscreen Mapping and More

Oct 28, 2013

The Nvidia Shield, the Tegra-4-powered Android device with a gamepad form factor, has gotten a major update that brings some great new features to it, according to The Verge. The killer new feature? The new Gamepad Mapper which allows for touch areas to be mapped to gamepad inputs, making more games theoretically compatible with the Shield’s HID gamepad. As well, a 1080p native display output, full microSD support, and the vaunted GameStream feature leaving beta are part of the system update, available now to Shield owners.
