We just announced the pre-order, pricing and availability of SHIELD yesterday, and the buzz is already beginning! The folks at Phandroid commented on the price by saying that, "The result is a tighter, more solid feeling device that not only looks like it's worth $350, but feels like it, as well." Forbes made it a point to call out that SHIELD's battery life "puts the Vita and 3DS to shame." As for Android Police, they simply said, "This is NVIDIA doing what it does best: changing the gaming scene. Again."
