Nvidia's (NVDA +0.4%) Project Shield handheld console will sell for $300-$400, Merrill reports an Nvidia exec stating. That would put Shield's price tag above the PlayStation Vita's $249, and the Nintendo 3DS' $170. It increasingly looks as if Nvidia intends for Shield to be a proof-of-concept meant to stoke gamer and developer interest in graphics-intensive, controller-based, Android games that could make good use of its Tegra processors.
