Chinese video game company Snail Games recently announced its new OBox gaming console. The device runs on NVIDIA Tegra K1 technology, allowing gamers to play Android games on their living room TV. Snail Games has stated that OBox will be upgradable and can run on Tegra X1 once that new superchip is released.
Even with the Tegra K1 powering the demo on display in Las Vegas, the OBox runs games on 4K TVs. Snail is already working with Gameloft, and will be adding additional partners to its lineup for optimized game experiences for OBox. The device will ship with pre-installed free games and additional free-to-play games will be available at the Obox store.
In addition, the OBox OS will allow any Android games to be played through it onto a big screen TV. Since it runs on NVIDIA technology, games enhanced for the SHIELD Tablet will also look and play better on the big screen via the OBox. The OBox ships in China in February and will be released in the U.S. this summer.
