Marketing of the game console was scheduled for today in the United States but it now has been postponed.

Fans of the brand will certainly be disappointed as the brand announced they must still wait a few weeks.

In a statement to TechCrunch, Nvidia explained that a mechanical issue was the main cause of the delay.

The statement read: “During our final QA process, we discovered a mechanical issue that relates to a 3rd party component. We want every SHIELD to be perfect, so we have elected to shift the launch date to July. We’ll update you as soon as we have an exact date.”

The console is equipped with a 5-inch screen, a Tegra 4 processor and 2GB of RAM.

The device also features dual analog joysticks, a full-sized D-Pad, and will be available for $299.
