NVIDIA Shield now selling for $199 for limited time
Android Cntral

Big $100 discount lasts through the end of April

If you are a big Android gamer and want a way to get your favorite games on your TV or PC, the NVIDIA Shield might be the ticket. The device launched at a price of $299 last year and has seen a few discounts to bring the price down $50 or so in the past.

NVIDIA has announced a new deal that will see the portable console get a big $100 discount reports Android Central. The special price will run through the end of April. The discounted console also includes a new version of Android with an upgrade to 4.4 KitKat.

NVIDIA also updated GameStream to allow you to wake a desktop computer on demand so you can stream games from your PC rather than NVIDIA servers. One of the big upgrades is a bump in resolution for games.

Previously the max resolution was 720p and now the console supports games to 1080p at 60fps. Other features include support for Bluetooth keyboards and mice with streaming games when connected in console mode to a TV. The device also now supports GameStream for notebooks using GTX 800M, 700M, and 600M GPUs.

The console also now allows you to add unofficial support for games to GameStream via a bit of tweaking. This all sounds like a good deal and you can buy the updated and discounted console right now. Those who already own a Shield will be able to get these updates next week via a software update.
