Nvidia's Shield set-top box comes with a modest 16GB of flash storage. That amount makes sense for those who'll mostly be streaming Grid games and Netflix movies alongside a few locally installed games, but Nvidia thinks some buyers will want more storage–a lot more. A new version of the console, called the Shield Pro, offers a 500GB hard drive instead.
At $300, the Shield Pro carries a $100 premium over the base unit that was introduced back in March. The rest of the internal specs are otherwise identical, but buyers get a free copy of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel–a nice perk.
