Due to a problem with a third-party mechanical component, NVIDIA has decided to delay the launch of its SHIELD handheld gaming device until sometime next month.

The issue relates to a third-party mechanical component, and we’re working around the clock with the supplier to get it up to our expectations. We apologize to those who have preordered SHIELDs and to all those who are waiting for them to go on sale. But we want every SHIELD to be just right.

Is this the first time nVidia's tried to sell a supposed streaming device called Shield? I only ask because it seems like I've heard nVidia talking about that name in some capacity for a couple of years, now. Maybe I've confused the product, though. Wish them luck as this seems a tough sell...

I'm still struggling to think of a good use case for this. Android games aside, why would I want to play a PC game streamed to a device with a much smaller display, when I can play it on the actual PC with a much larger display?
