Nvidia Shield is Shielding Your Money
When Nvidia's mobile PC handheld was announced earlier this year for the price of $349, people were stunned and gave negative criticism for it being too expensive. Now it has been revealed that a week before it is to ship to retailers, Nividia has decided to decrease the price down to a more reasonable $299. Despite the decrease in price, it still is a little bit more expensive than other alternatives such as the 3DS and PS Vita, but they don't have the capabilities to stream PC content that the shield will allow customers.
Will this mean that it will be more successful? Only time will tell if there is enough keen interest in this little gadget. It will launch next week in the US and Canada on June 27th. Currently the only confirmed retailers that will be stocking it are Gamestop, Newegg, Micro Center and Canada Computers. It is expected for the Shield to be released later in the year to other parts of the globe.
