NVIDIA Shield At $349 and Shipping in June.... Outrageous Pricing for an Android Gaming Machine

What the F&%$?!

I dont see the point of it, u can only play the pc games on your shield when ur in the house as it depends on local wifi for streaming. When ur outside and about with it whats the point really it has android games but doesnt all the phones and tables have those games as well

My $500 samsung note 2 says hi. Somewhere in the crowd $500-900 ipads are also waving hello.

Not saying they are a sweet value for most people, but you do have to realize all those tiny components are not cheap to make.
