Project Shield Launch Delayed Due To A “Mechanical Issue”

NVidia pushed back the release date of Project Shield from this week to sometime in July.

"During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component," the company explained in a statement on its official blog. "We want every Shield to be perfect, so we have elected to shift the launch date to July. We'll update you as soon as we have an exact date."

Project Shield boasts a 5 inch 1280x720 (294 ppi) Multi-Touch screen. It runs on Android Jelly Bean operating system powered by Tegra 4 Quad Core Mobile Processor with 2GB RAM.

I don't understand the hate,there have been so many failed attempts at an open gaming hanhand held over the last five years that I was begining to loose hope,I have found that it would take a large well established company to do this but didn't think it would happen.Can you imagine playing all your pc emulators on this,for the first time we would have a capable Sega Saturn,n64,GameCube,mame arcade,dreamcast,ps2 handheld gaming device then all your steampc games on top of that. Anyone who doesn't understand what this means simply doesn't have a clue about the devices before that couldn't do this properly,this device would be like the rest of the,failed attempts if there was lag in the stream but I doubt we will see lag.We need a serious android gaming device,nvidia gives us this and yet people complain ? Do you have shares in nvidia ? Why do you give a toss if you are uninterested ? I don't get it

Nvidia Tablet

Jesus this thing is Ugly. I don't care how powerful this thing might be.. at the end of the day it looks like a crappy child's toy and hell no.. 5 inches. Go **** yourself Nvidia. I know your losing alot of money now that you aren't selling near as many video cards as you use to and now that both xbox one and ps4 are both using AMD I know you're desperate to come up with new ideas however, this thing is a monster. It's a hideously ugly beast. Your new game tablet looks like a piece of chineese junk. I bet you had the chineese make this. I bet you paid the chineese slave workers 50$ to create this and now trying to sell this **** to us for 300$. **** you Nvidia. I'm not biting. I'd rather have a ps4 for $100 more or even that over priced Xbox one. Take your *******joystick / 5 inch screen and shove it up your ***.

aussie.... my oh my

create another style? this will make the developer hard work. aussie is bullshit. why they don't ban all cigarettes & alcohol which will harm on health instead on a pc games only play with both hands and fingers?


Yea, I still don't understand why they are making this thing. Maybe nVidia feels left out of this console generation, so they want to do something about it by making their own hardware, but this is not the way to do it.

Here's why...

Because companies that become stagnated, releasing the same products over and over are doomed to fail. Every businessman worth his salt knows that, so over time all companies try to broaden their business in order to avoid the dreaded stagnation.

Just to clarify.

Sorry just to clarify, are you saying nVidia is releasing this because THEY don't want to stagnate or because they think consoles will stagnate so they don't want to be part of that? I think you mean the former right? Captcha: Partial derivative - haha job related.
