NVIDIA Shield Price, Release Date Revealed, Pre-Orders Start

by Paul Strauss

The NVIDIA Project Shield gaming system was one of the more interesting devices to surface at CES 2013. At the time, there wasn’t word on pricing or a release date. Today, NVIDIA started taking pre-orders for the hybrid handheld/TV gaming system, and revealed both a release date and a retail price.


Now officially known as just the NVIDIA Shield, the system is selling for $349(USD), and will ship in the US and Canada “by July 2013.” The system will include the handheld itself, a silver lid, AC adapter, USB cable, and two full games: Expendable: Rearmed and Sonic 4 Episode II THD. Additional accessories are also available for pre-order, including a carrying case for $39.99, and carbon fiber and black lids for $19.99 each.

For those of you who don’t recall exactly what the Shield can do, it’s a powerful Android-based gaming system that can play games on its own 720p touchscreen, or on your TV’s display. It can also stream games from your PC – though that feature will be in Beta at launch.


NVIDIA is limiting pre-orders for the Shield to four systems per person (presumably to cut down on grey-market reselling), and you can pre-order yours now over at the NVIDIA Store.
