Nvidia needs a "Streaming Only Shield" offering for those of us who are not interested in gaming on it. Eliminate controller, drop the price by $50 and I'll be the first one to buy it.

True - I have xbox to play games - I was trying to sell the controller I got with shield - but looks like there aren't many people who wants to play games on shield.

It's great to stream PC games, granted you can get a steam link for $20 or so.

Sounds like you get a promo code when you purchase through the link. Grimy move IMO, trying to boost new sales and shortchanging existing customers; should be based on SN or something so that current owners can take advantage.

This deal makes me bitter. TU and rep to OP anyway, cuz it's not your fault that NVIDIA won't reward loyalty.

On the side note of the value of the SHIELD, I bought the shield a couple weeks before I was scheduled for spine surgery, wanting to have an AIO entertainment system that I could use while bed-ridden (and didn't want to bring my XB1 into the bedroom). I used the free 30 day trial of the GeForce Now, and found a couple of games that I really enjoyed (Mini Ninjas and Sniper). I allowed the service to renew even after I was up and moving again, and realized about 3.5 weeks into my paid month that I had not actually used the service, so I canceled. The SHIELD itself is great, and if the subscription service was $1/month instead of 7, I might keep it, for the possibility of playing something on it once in a while, but if I'm going to game, I'm going to do it on a real console.

Why wouldn't you just buy a different Android set top box device? What's special about the Shield?

It is hands down the best. Nothing else compares. Even 18+ months after the initial release and still at least 6 times more powerful than anything that came after it.

Shield can do Plex Server, OTA DVR with Live Channels, Amazon Video... I already have the Fire TV, Nexus Player and others. It would be nice to collapse it all into one device.

Yes, I agree for someone who doesn't have a console.

Many folks use emulators on these. Definitely recommended to get maximum value.
