In order to play video games, a machine now needs to be connected to a screen (or equipped with its own display). To free yourself from this grip, there’s still cloud gaming, as it’s big enough for a single screen and any compatible device, no matter how powerful… but it also brings new obstacles. So Dell Alienware envisions a halfway point to solve all concerns: the Concept Nyx.

Start a game on your desktop, continue playing it on the TV screen by simply rotating your controller, then return to play on your tablet behind your bed – all in the most intuitive way possible.
