    Nvidia Shield delayed 24 hours before launch
    Seems odd that a product a day from release would be delayed by a month.

    In light of the recent decision to cut the price, I'd say this thing looks dead on arrival. Can't say I'm surprised as it appears to be a product with limited appeal anyway.

    Testing one day before launch.. doesn't sound like they've committed to manufacturing thousands.

    I certainly hope they haven't given the issues they are having.

    They've delayed it so they can release Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

    I'm pretty sure this was a fairly small-scale investment for Nvidia, so won't do any major harm to the company. Seems like it is intended as a showcase for the Tegra 4 as a means of promoting it to third parties, rather than major new product.

    Despite that it's quite concerning that a product like this could come within 24 hours of going on sale only for what must be a fairly significant issue to come to light.

    A one month delay isn't going to be caused by a significant issue.

    Seemed pretty solid when I tried them at E3.

    Likely to be some minor legal issue? Some wording in the licensing agreement perhaps.
