The Nvidia Shield Android console is getting updated and it’s also getting a price drop. I’m not sure if this product was ever interesting for gamers, but it may become so, once the new features kick in.


This Android gaming device will get updated in April and the price tag will drop $40 around the same time. This means you can get a Shield for around $199. The Shield Update will bring the version of Android to 4.4 KitKat and it will offer remote streaming on the computer and also LAN access. You can login if the host has gone to sleep and you got locked out of the Windows installation.

You can also get news about the Shield updates from the Tegra Zone app, instead of having to follow news sites. Players will also be able to tweak the framerate and quality of streaming for excellent performance. Another thing worth mentioning is the support for Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, making the device much easier to use.

Over 100 games await you on this device and the update will go live on April 2nd.
