The news comes hot on the heels of last week’s announcement from Nvidia that the Shield price would be lowered by $50 (to $300) and would be released this week. However, Nvidia is now citing a mechanical issue with a third-party component as has decided to delay the release of the device until next month.
The Android-powered handheld gaming console has a 5-inch screen with 720p resolution and is powered by a Tegra 4 chip. The Shield also allows users to stream games from a PC, assuming they’ve got a GTX 650 GPU or later. For more information about the device, be sure to check out our impressions from our hands-on time with the Shield at PAX East earlier this year.
