NVIDIA Shield users, listen up! There’s a new update coming April 2nd, and it’s a doozie. The notable features and improvements include:

  • GameStream enhancements – Users can remotely stream games from their PC through a Wi-Fi connection via GameStream BETA
  • UI enhancements to Gamepad Mapper
  • A new version of TegraZone
  • Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat

Not only are there updates to the system, there are some game announcements as well! Popular titles such as Rochard, Mount & Blade: Warband, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Portal (yes the PC version) are making their way to the console “coming soon”.

Perhaps the most important Shield news of the day is that it’s finally getting another price cut. The NVIDIA Shield will be sold for $199 from March 25th through the end of April.

If this isn’t a perfect time to buy the Shield, I don’t know what is!
