The NVIDIA Shield portable gaming device was supposed to go on sale Thursday, however, some last mintue issues popped up and now the device has been delayed until next month. NVIDIA hasn't set another date for it to go on sale, just saying it will be sometime next month. You can get all the details over at NVIDIA's blog.
So, while we announced last week that SHIELD will go on sale this Thursday, we’ve taken the hard decision to delay shipping until next month.
The issue relates to a third-party mechanical component, and we’re working around the clock with the supplier to get it up to our expectations.
We apologize to those who have preordered SHIELDs and to all those who are waiting for them to go on sale. But we want every SHIELD to be just right.
