Nvidia’s Project Shield gets launchdate and price cut


Nvidia has confirmed that it will launch its portable games device Project Shield on June 27 for $299.

The new price is a little lower than the expected $349, a response to press and player reaction, according to Nvidia.

Shield intends to bring home console-grade visuals and controls to the portable space, and is capable of playing both Android and PC titles. It was revealed at CES in January and was pitched by Nvidia as having the potential to “do for games what the iPod and Kindle have done for music and books.”
