Something, something faulty. . .
If you’re were looking forward to Nvidia’s portable device, be prepared to wait a little longer. Earlier today, Nvidia announced that they have postponed the launch due to a third-party mechanical issue.
“During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component,” the Nvidia statement reads. “We want every Shield to be perfect, so we have elected to shift the launch date to July. We’ll update you as soon as we have an exact date.”
For a portable device, the Nvidia Shield boasts some remarkable tech under the hood including a Tegra 4 chip, a 5″ 720p display and the ability to stream games from your PC. Nvidia also recently took $50 off the original MRSP, bringing the Shield down to $300, but will that be enough to draw in the casual crowd? That remains to be seen.
