The set-top box is up for pre-order on the Play Store for $99 right now along with game controller for $39.

We are presently approaching the times when gaming on an Android-controlled stage will be something not all that phenomenal, and even pretty much as satisfying, as gaming on a reassure or PC. Pioneer gadgets, for example, the Kickstarter-supported small console OUYA, or the effective Nvidia SHIELD gamer-driven tablet are demonstration of the craving of both shoppers and designers to see another time of compact gaming gadgets. Google likewise remains behind its working framework's gaming capacities, with the approaching Nexus Player – a set-top box, fueled by Android, which can, regularly, play games from the Play Store.

After Google had unveiled the Nexus Player, it had assured that a new controller would be coming soon enough. The set-top box is now available for pre order on the Play Store at a price of $99 and as promised by Google, it has been paired up with a proprietary controller, which can also be pre-ordered from the Play Store at $39. We would say that there is nothing childish about the gamdepad which equips 2 analog sticks, a 4-button D-pad, and 8 action buttons. Out of these 8 buttons, 2 are pressure-sensitive triggers. It is no less than any other powerful console’s controller.

Lamentably, there is still a little issue with gaming on Google's versatile stage (which strives for the other significant players too) – there simply aren't that numerous titles out at this moment to warrant one's consideration, the extent that genuine gaming plan B go. Still, early adopters and Android fans will likely have a great time, and for a $138 speculation in addition to a couple of cheap diversions from the Play Store – some energetic gamers might likewise be entertained by a title or two.
