Nvidia SHIELD slips to a July launch
As Kotaku reported today, a mere day before the Nvidia SHIELD officially hit store shelves, a defect was found that will cause the device to slip into a July release date.
The company cited a mechanical issue that was discovered during a bit of last-second quality assurance testing. Nvidia has not gone into details about what, exactly, went wrong, but did state that it related to a 3rd party component.
Said Nvidia, “During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component. 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.”
What, exactly was this issue? Was it something major that would affect many gamers? Or was it something simple that Nvidia simply wishes to fix so that the SHIELD will, indeed, be as close to perfect as it can be?
