Here's SeekingAlpha's transcript of the comments Huang made:Source: The Tech Report
SHIELD is doing great. The early reviews are fantastic. . . . Sales have been great. Everything that we shipped so far has sold out and – but we're just starting to ramp production, we've shipped out to our partners only several thousand units, and so it's still quite early to tell. But we're expecting to do quite well with SHIELD.
Clearly, Nvidia didn't go overboard with early production numbers. Keep in mind, though, that the device costs $299, isn't available outside of the U.S. and Canada, and has only been shipping since July 31. Also, the Shield isn't exactly a conventional gaming product. In light of those facts, the numbers quoted by Huang do sound quite encouraging.
