Also included in the purchase is three months access to GeForce Now, which the company describes as ‘Netflix for games'. Subscriptions cost 7.49 per month, for which users gain streaming access a library of some 50 PC games including The Witcher 3, Mad Max and Batman: Arkham Origins.

Non-gaming features of the device include 4K video streaming from services such as Netflix.

Shield is a fantastic, easy to use product – letting you use just one device for all your living room entertainment,” Nvidia's EMEAI VP Jaap Zuiderveld said. Music, TV and film have already been transformed by streaming. With GeForce Now, we are bringing that same disruption to games at simply incredible value.”
