    It looks like folks who ordered the NVIDIA Shield will have to wait just a bit longer for the portable gaming device. NVIDIA halted production and delayed shipping until July. Apparently, they ran into a problem with one of the third party mechanical components of the device and wanted to make it right before putting it in gamers' hands. Here's a quote with their full press release,

    At least they caught it before shipping it out!

    My question is how is this "third party component" just faulty now and it wasn't faulty months ago. Were they just hoping and praying this one component that has been faulty through out all of their tests would magically work by release time?
