In an attempt to draw in even more players to its Android-powered handheld console, Nvidia has dropped the price on its Shield gaming system to make it more affordable. The system is currently being offered at $199 through Nvidia’s store, though no time frame was given on how long this deal will last.

Initially released last year for $299, the system has added GameStream functionality and several UI improvements since that introduction. Now, at $199, it seems too good to pass up. Nvidia has not released any sales figures for the handheld device. A lower price will certainly help convince buyers to give it a try, though.

The system is also $199 at other retailers, including Best Buy, GameStop and Newegg.
