Update (June 2018): NVIDIA SHIELD Game Controller (2017) @ GameStop for $29.97

I've been waiting for this controller to go to $30.00 new from a previous slick deal but hasn't been on sale since. Monitoring on ebay, these controllers sell for over $40.00 used or new. I've been waiting for a deal to get a second controller for my Nvidia Shield Game Stream setup and was happy with this price.

I was skeptical that this controller was a generic one, but I put a "hold" on this item at one of the local stores that had availability. When I went to pick it up, it is the official 2017 Nvidia Shield Game controller.

I also just ordered 2 more (to now have 4 shield controllers) shipped!

This is just a controller. It should work with various Android based systems including the Shield line of gaming systems. It has good build quality.

That is the first gen model. They haven't sold that one in a while. They then released a tablet version followed by a little mini console. I wish they would bring the tablet one back.

Are you sure they're not 30 at best buy still in store? Apparently that wasn't a sale but the in store price. Could be changed/fixed now

This is not manufactured by Nvidia (?)

"NVIDIA SHIELD Controller

by D & H Distributors | PC"

Edit: Maybe it's the Nvidia part. . . I'm not sure.

The tablet is still fantastic. Definitely see it as the precursor to the switch. Imagine the Nintendo Switch but with a general android OS. Nvidia did all the R&D.. Nintendo put their name on it.

But wished they updated the tablet. I play all android games on it.

However in the news.. apparently in a week you will be able to stream all your steam games on android or ios phone. Im almost crapped my pants despite having access to mobile games.

The original nvidia controller is stupendous. Well built and uses WiDi technology .. just means thats its as close to zero lag on wireless controller (better than Bluetooth). Wish all wireless controllers were widi.

Hi, I also thought it may have just been a 'generic' non nvidia made controller, and felt wierd because it didnt have a picture like you mention, but when I went to the website and selected to put a 'hold' on the item in my local store, I picked it up today and it was in fact the nvidia 2017 official controller.

Best buy online shows it at $59.99 @ https://www.bestbuy.com/site/nvid...Id=5709707

The only time I saw it for $30 was on 10/20/2017 with this post @ https://slickdeals.net/f/10708480-nvidia-shield-controller-best-buy-b-m-ymmv-29-99?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1
