    I can see the promo is already on OcUK, No mention of a free controller there or on the NVidia website?

    Odd, 'cos Nvidia reckons it should have it. To quote the emailed press release: 'For £299, those who purchase a 32GB SHIELD tablet will be entitled to a free SHIELD controller, the Green Box bundle and the use of NVIDIA GRID on-demand game streaming service. The Green Box bundle includes Half-Life 2: Episode One, Half-Life 2 and Portal which are available to download as soon as the tablet has been received.' It's also listed as part of the bundle on the blog post, although that's talking about the US. Let me send Nvidia an email, see what's up.

    I'm on the verge of buying one of these... Any of you got any good experience with it?

    Still thinking about this... Will be handing back an iPad to work shortly and want a replacement... I have an iPad air 2 and kind of like the idea of console mode. Plus the deal on at the moment is tempting... Or do I wait for the steam link in November and grab a hudl for the kids?
