    Kinda bummed out as I was looking forward to playing the new Borderlands 2 DLC on Shield this weekend, but I'd rather they get it done right than get it done sooner. Reply

    I agree I have been looking forward to this, however I am glad they are taking the time for good QA. It should be an excellent piece of hardware, if they are willing to take the hard road and delay it, that or it was catastrophic! Reply

    So they only knew about this THE DAY BEFORE LAUNCH?

    Yeah, right.

    Makes you wonder what inventory size they had build up for launch Reply

    Good one nVidia. It's good to see a company try to fix a known hardware issue before launch rather than not giving a frak and releasing their product like a certain games console producing software company. Reply

    Yeah, I think it's awesome they're willing to delay to fix whatever. Reply

    Heh, not surprising. Anybody wants to bet that the main issue is the SoC itself, and not the " third-party mechanical component" ? Reply

    So you're trolling here because they stopped letting you vent on semiaccurate? Reply

    Smells like troll unless you have links to prove your theory.

    A SOC issue would delay the product 6 months, not 2 weeks/one month. Reply

    No, because a problem with the SoC would take MONTHS to fix. They would need to do a respin in the least. Reply

    They discovered the heatsink was not huge enough? Or was the fan to small? Reply

    There is no fan in Shield Reply

    There is actually. The intake is under the 'Shield' logo. Reply

    It does actually have active cooling Reply

    i'd guess joysticks fouling up or wearing out excessively fast.

    kinda like the n64 controller.

    If this was a Microsoft product, they would ship it. Reply
