GRID is the Shield's cloud streaming system which grants access to PC titles. Last month Console Mode released, pairing Bluetooth controllers when connected to a TV.
The Nvidia Shield sold out shortly after launching, says Nvidia, which had already been delayed. It's an Android-based device that will stream PC games to its screen and comes with a built in controller. It's a more portable 'Steam Machine' if you will, for those who prefer handheld gaming as opposed to couch gaming. 1080p at 60 frames per second; enjoy.
Whatever gets PC games out on more devices is a good thing - world domination is assured.
