Didn't say it did have. Controller (IMO) is better than the remote anyway.

Sell one controller i got £40 for mine and buy a remote.You can get the amazon remote for £20.

As mr clarkson would say " I literally have no idea what you are on about "

awsome bit of kit got mine amazon deal 500 gb £169..99 prime 2 weeks ago brilliant ....

What the hell is this thing? Please don't tell me its an amazing console thing EDIT


ohhhh kay so yer I understand, I think this would be amazing! It's price is great! but kinda pointless if you have a gaming PC as Steam link is £40. Still I am loving the fact this could play the newest games ever by streaming direct to your TV, have I got the wrong end of it?

I got mine for emulation, Sean.
SNES, Megadrive, N64, Amiga, GameCube, PS1 etc etc.
All the emulators run brilliantly and I'm happy with my Shield TV.

16GB or 500GB what the hell ????

Would have thought nowadays something like this would have been 250 minimum if it has a 500GB model but as low as 16GB jeez.

hmm 2 tablets, 1 pc 1 laptop 1 console 1 bluray 1 smart 3d tv and 1 normalish tv and 1 chromecast... I obviously need one of these don't I? :-)

Good deal. I got the 16GB model last year and the 500GB model a few weeks ago for £169.99 in the Amazon deal.

Easy to install micro sd-cards and/or add external hard drive, with the android marshmallow update these can incorporated into internal memory.

Since the Android Marshmallow update you can set external memory as internal memory so a 16gb model is not really a problem anymore (In my opinion that is).
You beat me to it, Robert.

Awww I kinda want it just to see all the things it can do. Hah anyone wanna buy me one of these I pm you my address.

Do you need a pc and a fast internet connection to play most games tho?

Pretty perfect piece of kit (IMO). Stream games from home PC and/or has Nvidia's own internet game streaming service (don't need a PC for this) runs android apps, runs nvidia enhanced apps, runs all game emulators up to GameCube and Wii, and runs Kodi flawlessly.
Edited by: "robertr" 6th Apr 2016

apparently you can install linux on these things too.

You've got the wrong end of the stick mate. It's a mouse mat.

Can anyone comment on the controller D-PAD? is it better than the pathetic 360 pads dpad? I want this for emulation and fighting games.

was looking for android box and looks like i will get this one now lol

Was going to get an android box. Confused between this and Minix neo U1. Minix is £50 lesser with same features.

The Minix neo U1 does not offer the same specs and/or features as this. both are 4K capable and excellent for media streaming but the Shield is far more powerful graphically and comes with many gaming and emulation features.

The Shield is gaming machine and streamer in one.

I've the remote & pad but don't use neither - works 100% with the Harmony remotes.

Look st the shield forum in misc to unlock it's full potential

robertr

Absolutely!



What, no smart phones!!!

Will it run rocksmith?

​get tronsmart s95 meta for £50

I own a Shield TV Pro - the 500gb version
My view on it is
If you are just after an android box for streaming - get any other android TV box as they will all do what you want to do.
However if you are a gamer, get the Shield
Easily the most powerful gaming android TV box and can run anything android gaming based with ease, benchmarks are off the charts, beating most other boxes by quite some way.
Gamers who like retro stuff are in for a treat as if you have the Roms, you can play
Atari 2600, 5200, Lynx
Nintendo Nes, snes, n64, gamecube, which and everything else in-between
Sega Master system, megadrive to Dreamcast
Sony Ps1, Psp
mame for all the old arcade classics
Missed off quite a few more like Pc Engine and Neo geo

My 500gb is nearly full of just the retro stuff but in the shield store, you can get Half Life, Portal and quite a few more and if you want to pay £7.99 a month you can stream Pc games like Batman, Mad Max etc from Nvidia's mega Pcs

Easily the best home gaming console for a retro gamer.

This is why they hold their price so well

I have the 16gb version and slapped on a 500GB external on it with 1000s of rom games. Just need to get a cheap extra controller

I was looking into getting a media streamer such as a Roku 3 or Amazon Fire TV box. Does anyone have any experience of how the shield compares to these in terms of streaming?
