The new update allows Shield to push out 4K HDR streams from the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime, as well as the nifty new GeForce Now game streaming. In order to use GeForce Now, you'll need to buy the new game controller that'll set you back $60.

NVIDIA has saved current Shield owners $200 with this new firmware, meaning if you want to save the $60 on the new controller because you won't use GeForce Now - then don't. GeForce Now will cost you $25 for 10 hours of gaming, powered by GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards in the cloud.
