With  the delay, they lowered the price to $299. This thing looks good. I predict a homerun. Nvidia Shield

I don't see a home run. In a world without the Kindle Fire HD it might be alright, but the display resolution is to low, the screen is to small, it's not slim and professional looking...And it's way the hell overpriced. I predict nVidia abandons it quicker than tablet manufacturers are abandoning Windows ReTarded Edition.

Totally different market....Kindle is not a gamer. This thing will sell like hotcakes to the age group that bought the Game Boy. Plus, you can connect the Shield wirelessly to a " compatible GeForce GTX - based PC " and stream games. I will check again after 6 months and see if it's a home run or a foul.

Not for $300 it won't, not with having to compete against existing handhelds with better games. At $149 maybe, but not $300.

The sheild has to compete with the 3ds and Vita.

the only reason it should be anything better is if you have a GTX 650 Class GPU or better. Meaning anyone with an amd card wont find a use for it and it means Pc gamers will have to reason buying it.

 

I dont think its going to be a fail, but i think its going to be very limted.

I would get one for the sake of having it and me liking to be lazy when gaming and having such a portable... but i dont have a GTX class gpu anymore.

I went AMD, i have no use for it.

I can forsee a bundle with the Shield and graphics card...would be killer.

What a 650~700$ bundle?

Who the hell would buy that? XD
I think the sheild needs to drop another 50$ and find support patches for AMD and older high end gpus too... Otherwise its just going to be a limited system with no heavy demands.

Who would buy 2 7970's? Plenty of people would go for it...especially Nvidia lovers.

A bundle deal might work, say buy two GTX 780's (or 880s when they come out) and get a free nVidia Shield...It'd be a hell of a lot better than AMD's idiotic Never Settle bundle.

In my humble opinion, I think this looks somewhat cool.  I was watching a Newegg interview on YouTube about it just earlier today.  I wouldn't mind having one, but on the other hand I don't see myself rushing out to buy one.  After all, I sold my 3DS to help offset the cost of a Surface RT that I bought because I finally decided I just don't care about handhelds that much.
