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.)

Nvidia's handheld Shield launches in June at $349

Nvidia's Android-powered handheld codenamed Project Shield will launch this June at the price of $349, now named simply Shield. Yes, that's $100 more than a PlayStation Vita. The big selling point is that it can stream proper PC games from your computer as well as running regular old Android games, but how much is that worth to you?

Arma Tactics announced for Nvidia's Project Shield

When Nvidia announced its big goofy Android handheld Project Shield earlier in the month, it also quietly revealed Arma Tactics as one of its games. Developer Bohemia Interactive today formally announced that mobile game as a "turn-based close-combat strategy" affair, mentioning the XCOM and Jagged Alliance series as influences. It'll be available for other Nvidia Tegra-powered devices, mind, and may hit other platforms later too.
