Nvidia Shield retail launch delayed

Following on the heels of a recent price drop, Nvidia has also pushed back the release of its Shield handheld to July, citing an unspecified hardware issue.
Newsbrief: Nvidia's Shield handheld game device has announced it is pushing back its launch date to an unspecified day in July. Previously scheduled for release on June 27th, Nvidia says it is pushing back the device's launch due to "a mechanical issue that relates to a third-party component" but would not go into any further detail, other than to confirm with Engadget that it was an internal component that was causing the issue. "We want Shield to be perfect, so we have elected to shift the launch date," Nvidia said in a statement. As we previously reported, NVIDIA has also recently reduced the price tag on Shield from $349 (in range with the deluxe model of Nintendo's Wii U) to $299.
