NVIDIA announces Lollipop, Valve "Green Box" Bundle, and GRID game-streaming service for SHIELD devices
Not long after we reported the NVIDIA Shield Tablet will be among the devices that will bite on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the green-tinted company announced the rest of the goods it will bring towards SHIELD owners. In addition to Material Design and the preloaded Dabbler app, the SHIELD will be graced by Half-Life 2: Episode One - the first additional installment of Gordon Freeman's adventures - optimized for the NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip/mini power central that fuels the SHIELD tablet. The game will be part of the "Green Box", which includes Half-Life 2 and Portal, too - all for free, bundled with the 32GB/LTE version of the device.

Want some more? NVIDIA announced its GRID gaming service, which brings streaming of video games to SHILED devices straight from the company's GPU farm. Per NVIDIA's words, it delivers "a GeForce GTX gaming experience". GRID will be available in North America soon, reaching western Europe in December, and Asia next year. The service already includes 20 gaming titles and new games are coming every week, and the service will remain subscription free on SHIELD devices through June 30, 2015. Good stuff!
