[Update: Release Delayed Just One Day Before Launch] Nvidia's Shield Handheld Gets Price Drop

Posted on Wednesday, June 26 @ 15:15:00 Eastern by

[Update]: A post on the Nvidia blog from Paul states that the company is eager to get the Shield "into your hands. But we won't do that until it's fully up to the exacting standards that NVIDIA's known for. And some final quality-assurance testing has just turned up a mechanical issue that we're not happy with."

While the Shield was originally slated for release tomorrow, this issue has pushed NVIDIA's launch back by roughly a month. No hard date is given in the post, those an exact date should be known in July.

[Original]: Nvidia has announced that their Shield Android handheld console will drop $50 from its announced price point, from $349 to $299, ahead of the June 27th street date. Nvidia's Shield uses Google Android OS and streaming technology to liberate games from your computer in favor of the handheld screen or your TV.

Product Line Manager Jason Paul announced the discount on Nvidia's corporate blog today, stating that the company "wanted this device to be open and provide the best possible experience—whether you're playing Android or PC games, or enjoying your favorite movies, music, and other apps on the go.

"Feedback from gamers is why Shield's triggers have the perfect throw length, why Shield's buttons have just the right amount of give, why Shield's sticks are so satisfying to flick...."

Seeing as I just put over $900 worth of video game hardware in my Amazon shopping cart and clicked "buy," I'm not really in the market for Nvidia Shield, but listening to consumers is definitely something people should do... forever.
