Last month, Nvidia's Project Shield Android handheld got a shortened name, a release window of June, and a $US349 price tag. With June quickly coming to a close, the Shield is coming in hot on June 27, with $US50 knocked off the price to sweeten the deal.
Customers who have already preordered the Tegra 4-powered, PC game streaming handheld will be charged the $US299 price when their Shield ships. Those who waited to order one have missed out on suddenly having an extra $US50 to screw around with.
Is the Shield worth $US299? I do not know. At this point, I've only seen pictures and watched videos of Randy Pitchford singing. I have my preconceived notions, but they are ripe for shattering. If you're on the fence, I'm sure there will be plenty of fresh opinions floating around come next week.
