Black Friday is here and gamers looking for a portable console for a discounted price should opt for the Nvidia Shield Bundle that is available through select retailers for $50 less than its original price. And that’s not all, a few stores have also decided to offer a carrying case worth $39.99 along with the gadget.
It goes without saying that the package includes a couple of free games, so you can expect Sonic 4 Episode II THD and Expendable: Rearmed with the device. And of course, customers are not required to pay any shipping cost. The offer is valid at the official website as well as at Amazon, Gamestop, Tiger Direct, Fry’s, Newegg and more, but note that all portals have different schemes to proffer.
Let’s take a quick look at the Nvidia Shield’s features. The gadget compatible with 4K videos can be paired with a Bluetooth controller for a console-like gaming experience on a TV. A 5-inch Retinal quality display has been fitted on it for spurting out visuals in 1280 x 720p resolution with a pixel density of 294ppi.
The internal working of the device is taken care of by a quad core Tegra 4 processor which is accompanied by an Nvidia GeForce GPU and 2GB of RAM. It has 16GB of onboard storage and an option to increase it using a microSD card. In addition to this, the Android Jelly Bean-based portable gaming machine draws power from a 28.8Wh battery.
The Nvidia Shield Bundle costs $299.99, but is currently available for $249.99. The offer is valid until Cyber Monday.
