Last-minute delay hits Nvidia Shield console

Mechanical fault grounds the device.

I really want a go on one of these. But I'd never buy one, even if it cost 20. It just wouldn't get any use and my daughter would have destroyed it within a week.

$299 is a joke. It would be worth considering if it were more like $99.

Apparently you can do what Shield does with any old Android tablet, so $299 for one with a 5" screen is kinda lame.

If I have my gaming PC on and using power I'll game on it. I prefer 50" to 5" lol.

It's never NVidia's mistake, it's always someone else's, just like the crappy overheating and solder-destroying chipsets. It's interesting that same problems weren't encountered when using components from other manufacturers.

Are there any games good enough on android to warrant buying one of these?

Uhm...It may be just me, but I don't get this. At all.

Too bulky to be a tablet, with too small a screen. Besides, when my PC is on, I like to game on it directly? My desk is comfortable enough, I don't need a portable screen for my couch, especially at that price point.

I'd be interested to know if this genuinely interests someone.

The biggest problem Nvidia will face is that it's not really all that complex to get a controller working with an Android tablet.
