Jesus I remember playing Steel Soldiers for HOURS on end when I was in middle school....

Now to figure out WHERE can I buy the Shield Tablet and the controller. Best Buy, GameStop, etc all out of stock for quite sometime now. 3rd party sellers in eBay and Amazon are selling those at high price. $455 for a complete set?!

Nvidia need to do a better job marketing this product.

Dude, they aren't sold out at all. Tiger direct, Frys, and Amazon are sold out of everything. All resellers are sold out of the cover. You can get the tablet and controller at Best Buy, Newegg, nvidia, GameStop, etc. I'm the one selling most of the ones on eBay. I have a ton of controllers and tablets. Trust me, they're out there. Plus, Fintie makes a cover that is almost identical to the nvidia one in form and function.

I've been scouring Best Buy these past 2 weeks. Nothing. So is Gamestop.

Are you selling it at MSRP ($299) or is the price jacked up?

Look online, not in-store. Their websites have them. I don't sell to people in the USA, I export. My profit is minimal. eBay and PayPal get more from fees than I do.

I did. BB shows unavailable. Gamestop shows "not available within 30 miles". Frys shows not available online and to check stores. Just checked again and same thing

If there's a way for Amazon to alert me, I'll be estatic!

I meant market it better to garner more consumer interest, which makes more people wanting to buy more. Then retailer will order more and then Nvidia will produce more.

There isn't a shortage or lack of demand. You can still get everything except the cover. There is a problem with the manufacturing of the cover though. The manufacturer isn't meeting their quotas.

Well, certainly lack of presence. Most people at the office who use Android or iPad didn't know about the Shield until I show them the website.
