My gut reaction to seeing the $299 price tag of Nvidia's Shield gaming handheld: way overpriced.
And that was after Nvidia cut the price of the Android-powered device -- which will be available June 27 -- by $50 on Thursday.
But in reality, the Shield may end up being a relative bargain for folks who want a dedicated gaming device. It comes down to the video games available on Android. Many are free, or cost 99 cents. An "expensive" game would run you $10.
