Randy Pitchford Gives a Tour of Gearbox, His Home, And SHIELD

Posted on June 10, 2013 4:53 PM by Rob Williams

In what could be its most elaborate marketing video to date, NVIDIA paid a visit to Gearbox Software to get a full tour by CEO Randy Pitchford – and as if that wasn’t enough, they traveled on over to his home to get another full tour and check out some of his PCs and other gaming gear. It’s worth a watch:

Ultimately, the goal of the video is to help promote NVIDIA’s upcoming SHIELD gaming handheld, and Randy does a great job touting its best features (especially the ability to use it while on the loo). In the video, Randy’s wife is controlling Borderlands 2 on a PC about 20 feet away, while she sits down on the couch. And likewise, Randy’s children are also using SHIELD in a similar way. In his personal test, every action on SHIELD immediately reflected itself on the PC behind him, with no noticeable lag whatsoever.

Apart from that, the video will make you drool if you’re either a Borderlands 2 or computer hardware fan – and probably drop a jaw if you happen to be a fan of both.

    I’m a huge fan of Gearbox and Randy, so to see a bit of his world was a real treat. I hadn’t paid much attention to Shield, but after seeing what it can do, it looks pretty boss. It’s just not something that I need.

      I agree all-around. I don’t need SHIELD either, but I sure do want one. I just hope there are a lot of good Android titles coming that will make use of it, because the major money-grubbing that’s going on in mobile gaming today really bugs the hell out of me. I just want to buy a game and play it through without being conned into spending more money on in-game crap.
