NVIDIA announces release date and a price drop for the NVIDIA Shield

by: John -

Well, this is certainly some welcome news. First off, NVIDIA has announced that June 27th will be the release date for the handheld NVIDIA Shield Android device. That's only seven days away so those that have pre-ordered it should get it in their hands next week or a little later.

The BIG news however is that NVIDIA is dropping the price $50 to $299 for the system. That's pretty awesome. Those that pre-ordered will be charged the new price so don't worry about that. All in all, it's a pretty good day if you are a Shield purchaser.

I had my time with the Shield at E3 and found it to be a pretty good system. I just wish stream play would work outside the local network though. Still, at $299, that's a pretty tempting price for me to pick one up.
