After a bout of recent bad news regarding Shield's launch date slipping due to a mechanical issue with a third party component supplier, comes news that NVIDIA will meet its end-of-July ship deadline for the Tegra 4-packing handheld gaming console. Earlier today, NVIDIA sent off an email with some good news to customers who have preordered Shield, confirming that their units with the mechanical issue fixed will be shipped out on July 31.

“We want to thank you for your patience and for sticking with us through the shipment delay of your SHIELD. We have great news to share with you - your SHIELD will ship on July 31st.
Our goal has always been to ship the perfect product, so we made sure we submitted SHIELD to the most rigorous mechanical testing and quality assurance standards in the industry. We built SHIELD because we love playing games, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

We've played with NVIDIA's final Shield hardware a while back, and came away decently impressed. Now all that remains is the full review.

    Weren't they saying Shield was coming right up until the day before the release was supposed to happen? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...

    I will believe it when I see it.

    But hey when it does ship, the 50 or so people that pre-ordered will finally get to learn that they just wasted several hundred dollars.

    I agree the odds our against it, but I think they deserve credit for making big bets. Whether it succeeds or fails, we'll all learn more about what works and doesn't work at the edges of mobile innovation.

    Making a good calculated gutsy bet woukd pay off. This thing has NGAGE all over it. It will soon hit $99, then maybe some bargin hunters will bite but those are not the folks that buy games.

    Unless you invested in nVidia stock, why should you care one way or another? :)

    I asked my wife to get one for me for my birthday, I'd like to play around with one. Just for the game streaming, I could care less what OS it ran (iOS, Android, WP8), don't expect to use any native apps.
