This is what you can do with a rooted Nvidia Shield that has the Full Android OS installed---***Please note I am in no way affiliated with the posted video. It is only for reference*** But be aware that the Nvidia wireless controller will not work unless its wired as the controller is tied to Nvidia's operating system and Full Android OS does not recognize it

Yes it was this price without controller. Now they are giving it as free. They ran this promotion earlier too. There was another promotion with 10% as well that ended 2 weeks back.

I'm not sure why this is getting downvoted. Previous deal included the Nvidia "remote" (49.99) value and was a 5-star "popular deal." This deal is the exact same but instead of the remote includes the controller (59.99 value).

I'm returning my Shield TV that I just bought off Amazon to get in on this deal.

***comments below only apply to the 16GB version***
Do yourself a favor and walk into Best Buy....ask for the 16GB version as it won't be on the shelf. When they bring out the box, make sure that there's a pic of the "remote control" on the front. If it does go grab the extra game controller from the shelf and tell them to ring you up. For $199.99+tax you'll get:
16GB Nvidia Shield TV w/ game controller
1 remote control ($49.99 value)
1 extra game controller($59.99 value)

***YMMV only because you're hoping they bring out the 16gb Nvidia Shield w/remote bundle.***

So basically this is the same deal that's found often recently @ amazon, Nvidia, Newegg, except they swapped the remote for a controller. So if you want the remote, sold seperately.

Sorry I get it now. Pretty slick. My BB doesn't carry the 16G version, but would be the way to go if they did.

Go online and check for store availability(enter zip code)....if it says available for pickup....go in to the store and ask to see if they have any in the back as they do not have them on the shelf. Make sure 16gb box looks like the one in the pic that I posted. Hope you find one...
***This deal started after midnight...and stores don't even advertise the free game controller yet,...but if you ring it up with the 16GB/500GB...it comes up free as a bundled item. The deal is to get the 16gb that comes with the free remote bundled inside the box...

I got one from Best Buy like OP said. I asked to see the box and checked to make sure it says "Shield Remote" on the side of the box. I didn't see the photo posted then.

I then showed Best Buy's webpage to the person helping me that it comes with a free controller and he said he'll have to scan to make sure since it could be an online only deal. He went to get the controller, scanned it and said "Yep, the controller is free."

I almost picked up a set yesterday with just the remote for $200 through one of those local selling apps. Now, for $199+tax, I get a remote PLUS a controller! woot

Thank you OP and repped.

Would it be possible to return the free controller for Best Buy credit?
