The 'Guardian' is a screen-equipped carrying case that allows you to play console games...

  1. The company sells a number of mobile console gaming solutions, such as the "Vanguard"; a $349 carrying case that includes a 720p LED display, a power supply, and all the space and connectivity you need to fit your full-sized console (such as the PS4 or Xbox One) and controller(s) of choice.

    However, it seems the Vanguard isn't good enough for GAEMS. At CES 2019, the company unveiled its latest product: the Guardian. Much like the Vanguard, the Guardian is primarily intended as an on-the-go console gaming solution, and it has all of the same basic components; just with some construction and hardware upgrades.

    For starters, unlike the Vanguard, the Guardian features a mixture of metal and plastic components, which are designed to make the case sturdier and more protective of its stored hardware.

    Additionally, it has built-in speakers (seen above) and a 24", QHD IPS display with a 60Hz refresh rate. Given that most console games don't reach 60 FPS, GAEMS is undoubtedly hoping some Guardian users will stow their full desktop PC in the case.

    It also has what looks to be three front-facing USB 3.0 ports, and all the connectivity gear you'll need to get up and running while sitting at the airport or crashing in a hotel room.

    Only time will tell how popular the Guardian will be -- especially since we don't know how much it'll cost yet -- but we'll certainly find out when it ships in Q3 2019.

    Nice concept but I don't want to carry around luggage.

    So, console price + case price OR mid spec laptop + console emulator...
    You'd really have to be desperate to play some particular console only titles on the go to buy this in my opinion.
