After deciding to delay the launch of their new handheld gaming console, NVIDIA has today officially confirmed the new shipping date for the console, confirming it for July 31st.

The NVIDIA Shield packs a NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, with 2GB of RAM, a console grade controller with dual analog joysticks, a full-sized D-Pad, left and right analog triggers, full-sized bumpers and finally A/B/X/Y buttons.

The Shield was first delayed due to a mechanical issue NVIDIA found during their testing process, since which they have been working to fix these issues.

The NVIDIA Shield will begin shipping to those who have pre-ordered the device on July 31st, after which it will retail for $299 in the US.
