Nvidia Shield Gets a Price Drop and Launch Date

Posted on June 20, 2013 AT 06:48am

Nvidia has responded to concern over the price of its Android-based handheld by dropping it–pretty simple logic really. The company also announced an official launch date for the Shield.

The Shield will now cost $299, instead of the $349 originally announced, but is it a big enough drop to get people interested? We’ll know for sure when the handheld becomes available on June 27.
