It was earlier this month that NVIDIA finally announced the price of its Project SHIELD game console. Officially called the NVIDIA Shield, this Tegra 4 powered console is now available for pre-order at $349. The company says that it will start rolling out the device to customers by the end of June. Before any device can be sent out to customers, it has to get the FCC’s approval. The NVIDIA Shield has now turned up at the FCC for what is the customary pit stop, this is a good indicator, this means that the release is likely to be on time.
The console will also be available for retail partners like GameStop, Micro Center, Canada Computers and Newegg. NVIDIA is expected to reveal more about Shield and its titles next month at the E3 conference. We went hands on with the console back in January and certainly believe that it will be appreciated by those who are looking for a portable high-end gaming system, it touts the fast Tegra 4 processor and a 720p screen.
