NVIDIA Shield gets last minute price drop ahead of June 27 launch


Listen up, mobile gamers! NVIDIA, listening to the feedback of the community, has dropped the price of the Shield one week ahead of its launch. Now, instead of carrying a $349 sticker, the gaming and entertainment device will cost only $299.  Indeed, that’s exactly the price I’ve told friends to make a definite must-buy product.

Since then, we’ve put SHIELD in the hands of thousands of gamers. Some have been professional press. Others have been inside our own company. But most have been people like the tens of thousands who streamed through our booth at PAX East and E3.

Also of note, we’re now one week away from the release of the NVIDIA Shield; the official debut is June 27!

But what if you pre-ordered the Shield when it was $349? No sweat, you’re only charged $299 when it goes on sale!

I am one of those professional press listed above as I got to spend an hour with it in New York. It’s a great device and something I feel gamers would really appreciate. Things work well across both Android and PC streaming and the details (graphics, particles, smoke, lighting, bloom, etc) are nothing short of breathtaking.  In short, I’m all over this when it comes out and suggest you are as well.
