"We want to thank you for your patience and for sticking with us through the shipment delay of your Shield," Nvidia said in a statement.

The Nvidia Shield was delayed last month one day before it was scheduled to launch due to the discovery of a mechanical issue.

"Our goal has always been to ship the perfect product, so we made sure we submitted Shield to the most rigorous mechanical testing and quality assurance standards in the industry," the company said. "We built Shield because we love playing games, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do."

The $300 Nvidia Shield gives gamers access to an array of gaming avenues, including Nvidia TegraZone, Google Play, and Steam. The system runs on the Tegra 4 processor and boasts 16GB of memory, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a mini-HDMI output, a microSD storage slot, and a headphone jack.

The device also features a five-inch, 720p multi-touch display. For more on the Nvidia Shield, check out GameSpot's preview of the device from the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year.
