Nvidia claims Shield sales are 'great,' planning to 'ramp production'

Shield, Nvidia's Android-based portable gaming console, has been a success. Well, according to Nvidia, at least.

Senior director of investor relations Chris Evenden says that "sales have been great," noting that "everything that we shipped so far has sold out." (Although, that's not what the device's official website suggests, which limits purchases of 4 units at a time.)

According to GI.biz, Evenden says the company is "starting to ramp production." International sales will be key, as CEO Jen-Hsun Huang expects a "strong" second half of the year due to "Shield moving beyond the US."
