SHIELD Pre-Order Moved Up in Response to Growing Buzz

by Jason Paul

Good news: our partners are so excited about SHIELD that they’re moving up the pre-order date for our amazing new open platform gaming portable.

You can now pre-order your SHIELD today.

Check out what some of our partners are saying about SHIELD:

“SHIELD is a brand new kind of gaming portable and we’re thrilled to be one of the few retailers who will be carrying it,” said Stephen Weller, director of product management at Newegg. “Our tech savvy customers love gaming and are anxious to get their hands on it. In fact, we’ve decided to move up the pre-order date for those customers who want to be among the first to own a SHIELD!”

“Gamers look to GameStop as their defacto gaming destination,” said Joe Gorman, vice president of mobile at video game retailer GameStop. “As Android gamers look for a place to get the latest and greatest gear, it made total sense for us to carry SHIELD. We believe this handheld console will revolutionize the Android gaming market.”

Here’s where you can pre-order SHIELD now:

Look for Micro Center to go live with a pre-order page within the next few days. We’ll update this post with a link to it when they do.

    Even though I doubt the price will go down very much, I’m going to wait a bit and see how things shake out. I already have a fairly potent gaming PC, and a 680-powered Valkerie laptop, so I’ll need to see why, other than the incredible battery-life, I should buy one of these.

    Thanks for the note. 

    Here are a few for you to consider:

    *It works great with Parrot’s AR.Drone —
    *If you already own an Android phone, you’ve probably already got a game library you can slide right into SHIELD. 
    *It plays well with others — SHIELD has an SD Card slot, an HDMI port, a micro-USB 2.0 slot. No proprietary connectors, cards, sticks,  or cords required. 
    *Tegra 4 – Grab SHIELD and you’ll be among the first to try the world’s fastest mobile processor.

    Got it. I probably shouldn’t have commented because I am not a member of most of the demographics mentioned. I’m a hermit and do not own nor intend to purchase an Android phone, nor do I watch TV so I do not own one. 

    I will say, however, that I am interested in this because it might be right up my granddaughter’s alley-one of the prime reasons I purchased the uber-powered gaming laptop.

    I am also very excited for the nvidia shield and waiting on
    a uk release date but there are two things I that I have questions about

    1. Will it support services like origin and uplay down the
    line? I have many games on both those platforms like battlefield 3 and ghost
    recon I would love to play on the shield

    2. Would the shield work for game streaming if I left my pc
    on in one house and tried to connect with it over wifi in a different one?

    What is the HDMI out specification?  Will it support beyond 1080p when connected to a 1080p+ resolution monitor?   I envision being able to use it for Netflix and a full Android computer connected to monitor and keyboard/mouse (using the monitor USB hub).

    as long as you have geforce experience it will display and it should play all of the games on your computer with a geforce card 650 or higher

  • TheCubicGamer

    The HDMI video output of the SHIELD goes as high as 4k. So yes, the video output can be 1080p.
