NVIDIA has announced a price cut and shipping date for its Project Shield Android gaming console.
The system will launch in the US on June 27 at the reduced price of $299 (£195), down from its original cost of $349 (£225).
Customers who have already pre-ordered the console will be charged the reduced rate, which NVIDIA claims it brought in based on feedback from gamers.
“We’ve heard from thousands of gamers that if the price was $299, we’d have a home run. So we’re changing the price of Shield to $299,” said the graphics card maker.
Powered by a Tegra 4 chip, Project Shield sports a five-inch 720p touch-screen and is also capable of streaming content to a monitor or TV display, either wirelessly or through a HDMI connection.
