NVIDIA announced a set-top box version of its popular Shield portable gaming system at the Game Developers Conference in 2015. This Shield runs on Android TV and has full access to the Play Store along with a new Shield Store. The device functions as a cross between a gaming console and a media center, not unlike the Apple TV.
