Nvidia's Shield gets Android 4.3 support as well as several other new features.
Nvidia today announced a massive update for its handheld gaming console known as Shield. This update brings Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to Shield as well as introducing a host of new features including Console Mode, which introduces a portable living room console, and Shield Gamepad Mapper, which allows you to create your own custom controls for thousands of Google Play titles. There's also support for the recently announced Nvidia GameStream, which provides the ability to stream PC games to your Shield, and the ability to properly move apps to the SD card.
Our own Don Woligroski took the new OTA update for a spin and was over all pretty impressed with the update after a less-than-successful first run with the device earlier this month:
"Nvidia isn't calling its October 2013 OTA update a re-launch per se, but from where I'm sitting, that's certainly what it feels like," Don writes. "In my opinion, this mobile gaming platform shouldn't have been released without a game control mapper and working App2SD functionality in the first place."
