Based on Reddit posts on similar qns there were NS sales in 2018 BFCM only because it was 2017 model so unlikely 2019 model will have sales so soon.

I'm hoping at least bundle one game controller with 2019 model so just need to buy another one for mp but even then it's not for shipping to SG besides the ridiculous price.

Yes reviews about sticky joystick and durability of the game controller is a deal breaker if have to purchase separately at such high cost.

Is this the only controller that supports Google Assistant and rumble?

I'm in no hurry to get so hopefully there'll be an improved controller and by then there'll be bundle and prices easier to swallow.

upgrading from no shield counted?
Local prices are listing around $380 to $400+ for imported Pro version.
IIRC, AmazonUS costs about $310?

Think he means getting Atmos with Netflix. I upgraded from 2017 Shield to the new one.

Can any bro recommend cheap compatible wireless controllers for the Nvidia shield? Not worth buying the original without package deal

So far so good. Worthy upgrade. Remote is much better than the old one.

The AI upscaling does a good job too.

Hmm, not really noticable difference in interface speed compared to the 2017 version. The Shield has always been fast for me. I don't install any apps that I don't need. Think I only have Kodi, Amazon Prime Video and Netflix installed.

Received my Shield Pro from amazon. Total damage around $320 after shipping.

Impressions:

Love the remote. Buttons are solid, lights up to see at night. Uses AA batteries so can last longer too. With Anynet CEC I can turn on my TV and control volume with it too.

4K AI up scaling works very well. Noticeable improvement in sharpness and detail, but sometimes it's a bit harsh. Works better with good quality 1080p or 720p sources. Compressed files can look worse as it sharpens artifacts.

Speed is good as always. Snappy interface, apps don't get killed too quickly. On wired gigabit connection I'm getting 850+down, 800up. Wireless around 400down, 400up.

Plex setup was perfect, running it as client paired to my NAS. Can handle a bit of transcoding to around 3 devices but better to use direct play. Geforce Now works well enough though I don't use it much.

All in all, it's a good deal and can last a long time. No need to waste money on smaller boxes that die often. I still have my original 2015 shield running in my bedroom 😂

Don't get from local imported at carousell, their prices stupidly marked up.

Hi Guys,

I am mainly going to be playing atmos 4k HDR contents off my harddisk and also running netflix 4k atmos in NS.

What is the HDMI cable you guys are using? Normal 4k ones or one of those funky 4k ultra HD 2.0b ones that cost a fortune?

Cheers.
