NVIDIA’s Shield Android Console To Be Delayed Due To Mechanical Issues

Posted Jun 27, 2013

The NVIDIA Shield Android game console has been delayed to July from June 27th.  Why?  Mechanical issues in the first batch of consoles.  NVIDIA reports that a third party component is the root cause for the delay.

?During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component.  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,? said NVIDIA in a statement.

NVIDIA did not name the third party that was at fault.  It is unclear when the console will arrive in July whether it is the beginning, middle, or end of the month.
