A couple of people (together with us) who’ve preordered the NVIDIA Shield controller have found themselves in possession of a snazzy new Shield T-shirt over the past couple days to go along with their $ 350 preorder. Accompanying the shirt was a note, which reads thusly:
Thank you for pre-ordering SHIELD. SHIELD is NVIDIA’s first gaming portable, and has been a labor of love for us over the last year and a half since we started the project. Our vision was to build a dedicated, open platform gaming device that would allow you to enjoy a wide catalog of native Android and streamed PC games with full freedom and mobility.
To celebrate the arrival of SHIELD, we’ve designed a limited-edition SHIELD T-shirt and have included one in this package to thank you for your pre-order.
On behalf of the SHIELD team, we hope you enjoy the experience!
Now us being the skeptical type, we checked in with NVIDIA to make sure Shield was still headed for customers’ hands this month, as promised. And we’re assured that while no shipping date has been announced, “late June” is still on track.
We took a look at the finished product for Shield at NVIDIA’s headquarters final month and located what will have to be a extra-than able transportable gaming software.
Protect, in a nutshell, is an Android four.2 tool powered with the aid of the NVIDIA Tegra four gadget, in a position to video output at as much as 4K decision. It can be operating inventory Android, can be open to hacking and has one of the very best audio system we have now ever utilized in a transportable product.
