Nvidia's Project Shield to cost $349 in North America

UPDATE: Pre-orders available now, a few days ahead of schedule.

Update: Pre-orders for Shield have been moved ahead from 20th May to 17th May - that's today!

This is still a North America only offer at the moment. The European launch date and pricing is yet to be announced.

Original story: Nvidia's Android-based handheld that can stream PC games, Project Shield, has been redubbed simply Shield and is priced at a whopping $349 in North America where it will debut in late June.

No European release date or price has been revealed, though we've reached out to Nvidia about that and will keep you posted.

North American pre-orders will go live on 20th May at Nvidia's official site, and Shield will be carried at such retailers as Newegg, GameStop, Micro Center and Canada Computers.

Shield is powered by the Tegra 4 processor and contains a five inch multi-touch display atop a more conventional dual analogue stick controller.

For more information, our Rich Leadbetter investigated the ins and outs of Nvidia's device earlier this year in his Digital Foundry spec analysis.
