Today, this year’s hottest portable gaming device sheds the “project” moniker and officially becomes NVIDIA® SHIELD™! Since you signed up for SHIELD updates, you’re the first to know, and can be the first to own one. SHIELD is only available to U.S. and Canadian residents. 

Since its announcement at CES 2013 earlier this year, SHIELD has gone through finishing touches like tweaking the buttons and joysticks, optimizing the thermal design, and enhancing software for a more intuitive, comfortable, and lag-free gaming experience. It’s not just the most powerful portable gaming device, it’s the most powerful Android device ever created. 

SHIELD runs the latest Android Jelly Bean OS. It’s also powered by the NVIDIA Tegra® 4 mobile processor, clocked up to 1.9Ghz, and paired with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage (expandable with a microSD card slot). The 5-inch 720p HD retinal touchscreen serves up high-resolution eye candy, while the integrated stereo bass reflex speakers pump out loud audio. And a sizable battery rated at 28.8 Watt Hours means you’ll enjoy a whole lot more gaming, videos, music, and web browsing. 

We’re preloading SHIELD with two awesome Android games—Sonic 4 Episode II THD and Expendables: Rearmed. Of course, you can download loads of Tegra-enhanced games through NVIDIA TegraZone™ or directly from Google Play. And, for all you PC gamers out there, SHIELD will connect to your GeForce® GTX-powered desktop to stream your PC games through our lag-free WiFi technology. PC streaming will initially launch as a BETA feature with support for a number of top Steam games, and gamers will receive a free software update once the official release is available. 

As a thank you for being a loyal SHIELD enthusiast, we’re giving you a chance to pre-order your SHIELD before the general public—for $349! Quantities are limited, so you’ll want to move fast. SHIELD is only available to U.S. and Canadian residents.
