Back when NVIDIA announced its SHIELD portable gaming device they thought they were going to blow the socks off the industry. Well that really has not happened and besides giving the unit away to bloggers and press at events they really have had a hard time pushing the device. At the GPU Technology conference the company announced new updates and features to the device.
Many people had been waiting for newer upgrades to the Shield gaming system and just as it had been promised by NVIDIA itself, the bigger upgrades are finally here and they are being delivered in spades. Many of the fans which had been speculating about these upgrades would be happy to hear that the newest Console Mode has been introduced by the Android 4.3 update.
The introduction to NVIDIA’s launch has surely been out of the ordinary. There was this time when the demand was so strong that NVIDIA pulled pre-orders ahead by a couple of days and then after some time it dropped down the prices for some reason. Then suddenly last month, when we were just about to see it make debut in the market; the company discovered a drawback in the device and stopped the launch right away. Things have been a bit on the silent mode since then. But now the company has given its final verdict on the launch, and that shall be by the end of this month.
We have not heard that much on NVIDIA’s front about Project Shield, the portable console built around Google’s Android operating system. Well it looks like you will be able to pick one up next month for $349. You can actually pre-order yours on May 20th if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on this device! NVIDIA has gone with Shield and dropped the “Project” from the name.
