On Black Friday, NVIDIA held a special promotion where you could get the Shield Android TV set-top box for just $150, with a free Shield Remote ($50 value) included as well. This made for a savings of $100 all-together, though the only catch was the offer was good in participating brick-and-mortar locations such as Best Buy. For those wanting to get in on the deal online, today is the day!
Celebrating the still relatively new Cyber Monday tradition, NVIDIA is opening up the promotion online, while supplies last. NVIDIA is also offering discounts on a handful of games on its website, so head to shield.nvidia.com to shop around.See also: Shield Tablet and Tablet K1 set to receive Android Marshmallow in the coming months
