When it comes to Android TV, there is one device which does lead the pack. The NVIDIA SHIELD is the most powerful Android TV device currently available on the market. That said, it is not only is the most powerful Android TV device in terms of specs, but is also one which comes with a clear emphasis on gaming, thanks to the inclusion of a ton of additional gaming options which you will not find on other Android TV devices.
Well, NVIDIA have this morning announced one of their deals that you can expect to see going live over the next few days. The deal is for the NVIDIA SHIELD and means that you will be able to pick up the SHIELD in-store for only $149.99. It is worth noting that recently NVIDIA started a promotion where you could pick up the SHIELD and get the SHIELD Remote for free. This is typically sold as a $49 accessory and it seems NVIDIA will also be continuing this promotion during the newly released promotion. This means that you can pick up the NVIDIA SHIELD, the SHIELD Controller and the SHIELD Remote all for only $149.99. Making this the very cheapest price we have seen on the SHIELD since its release and especially for the entire bundle.
In terms of the details. the SHIELD will be available at the knocked down $149.99 price over Black Friday, with the deal going live from 12.01 am PST on Thursday, November 26 and ending 11.59 pm PST on Saturday November 28. However, during this time-frame, the deal will only be available in person at a number of retailers including the likes of Best Buy, GameStop, Fry's Electronics and so on. If, however, you cannot get down to a store anytime over the Black Friday period (or would prefer not to join the masses of queues), it does look like by the time Cyber Monday rolls around, the same deal will be available online too. So you can pick up the SHIELD under the current promotion either over Black Friday in-store or online from Cyber Monday. If you had been waiting to try out the Android TV platform, then this is an ideal time to take advantage of a great deal.
