GPU giant Nvidia has announced that it has been forced to delay its Nvidia Shield game console. The Shield was originally set to launch this week but Nvidia announced that a mechanical issue with third-party part has forced the launch to be delayed. Currently the launch is expected to happen in July but the exact date is unknown.
“During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component,” the Nvidia statement reads. “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.”
Nvidia has already knocked $50 off the Shield game console, dropping the price to $299. The Nvidia Shield game console is powered by Android and has controls that remind a lot of an Xbox 360 controller. The console has its own small display and can also be used to play Android games on your TV.
