Just because NVIDIA jumped the gun with what looked like an early Black Friday deal on the Shield Android TV set-top box last week, it doesn’t mean the gaming pro can’t up the bargain ante between November 26 and 28.
Thursday through Saturday therefore, you can grab the microconsole for even less directly from the Santa Clara-based device manufacturer, as well as Best Buy, GameStop, Micro Center, and Fry’s Electronics.
What does this less mean? An incredibly reasonable $150, which is technically $50 off the list price, but in reality offers $100 actual savings, given it also includes a free remote, separately valued at $50. That’s with only 16GB internal storage space, obviously, while the 500GB Shield Pro configuration costs $250 on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, bundling the same nifty remote in addition to a standard gaming controller.
Furthermore, NVIDIA wants you to stack up on affordable Shield Android TV-friendly games this holiday season, shaving 50 percent off compelling titles like Doom 3 BFG Edition, Contrast, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal, and Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut.
Finally, we’d be remiss not to remind you of the Shield Tablet’s recent rebranding and price lowering, with the tag unlikely to drop a penny under the $200 mark. Would it be too much to hope for the “classic” Shield Portable to return in stock and go for $150 instead of $200 in the next few days?
