NVIDIA exec confirms Project Shield coming to Asia in March/April, will eventually be offered in the PH


We were present during NVIDIA’s Editor’s day event last Saturday, and while the event didn’t really showcase anything new we did manage to get some jucy info on the company’s recently announced handheld console, Project Shield. We spoke to NVIDIA Field Support Rep Glenn Paul Serrano about the product, specifically when we can expect it to land on our shores. While he didn’t have exact dates for us, he did say that we can expect the device to it Asian markets around March or April. That doesn’t mean that we’re going to be joining the Shield party at the same date of course – priority will be giving to larger markets first (like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand) before landing locally sometime thereafter. While all of this is possible, always remember that there’s also that tricky thing called demand – NVIDIA will need to see if there’s enough demand in our country to warrant bringing in the revolutionary Android console to our shores.
