NVIDIA’s Shield TV set fourth to be an Android powered set-top box for all levels of gamers. and it did not disappoint. First released in 2015, it was years ahead of any competition but didn’t gain the traction Nvidia engineers hoped for.

NVIDIA will keep the $200 bundle but will interpolate the $60 Shield controller as well as the Shield remote.

The new remote-only $180 Shield is available for preorders on the Nvidia website. The Santa Clara based tech company plans to start shipping on October 18th, and will expand to select partners (including Best Buy, New Egg, Amazon, and Fry’s) before Thanksgiving 2017.
