Price cut, an update to KitKat, and better streaming coming to the NVIDIA Shield
NVIDIA's gamepad-shaped love letter tomobile gaming, the Shield Tegra 4-based console, is about to become betterand cheaper. For starters, a price cut will trim the Shield's pricedown to $199, which is definitely more palatable than the $250 to$300 which the device used to sell for. While NVIDIA hasn't explainedits motives, it's not unreasonable to assume that a successor to theconsole is being primed for release in the coming months andinventory must be cleared. Or maybe the company just wants to sellsome more Shields. Regardless, the newly discounted device will begetting Android 4.4 KitKat soon, with Google's Immersive Mode to makebetter use of the 5-inch 720p IPS display, and further NVIDIAgoodies. For what we know, a new version of TegraZone with refreshedinterface and news feed to cover the latest games is coming along.
It looks like NVIDIA has kept busylately. So, are you getting a Shield at the new price?
