Nvidia Shield TV users are in for a treat. Nvidia has just announced the Android TV device will be getting an update to Shield Android TV Upgrade 3.0, which includes the jump to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, along with a new game, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
First, Metal Gear. Making the move from PC and consoles, Revengeance is what happens when you cross Metal Gear and Devil May Cry. It’s a hack and slash game starring Raiden, a half-human cyborg ninja. It’s great fun and well worth playing. It will be available Thursday, January 7.
Now, the big news. Shield TV is now being updated to Android 6.0, Marshmallow, bringing with it the huge addition of adoptable storage. According to Nvidia, “when adding an SD card, USB drive or external hard drive, SHIELD Android TV can recognize the new storage as internal memory.” In other words, there’s really no reason to buy anything other than the 16GB model, with memory being so affordable right now.
Along with adoptable storage Nvidia is also introducing UltraFlix, the industry leader in 4K content, and a more customizable home screen.
Now is a great time to be a Nvidia Shield TV user. Look for the next update to drop soon.
