As part of Prime Day, NVIDIA is offering the Shield and Shield Pro on Amazon for $50 off their respective MSRPs, in addition to throwing in a free second gamepad (Shield's gamepad is, by the way, excellent). Normally, the cost of a Shield 16GB console with two gamepads would be $259 - today it's just $149. The 500GB Shield Pro with a second controller would normally be $359, but for Prime Day, it's $249. That's a heck of a deal, and while Shield promotions aren't exactly rare, they're usually either a flat discount or a free remote - this deal hasn't happened before, and offers the greatest net discount on the console and its accessories we've seen yet.

Head over to Amazon now to take advantage of this quite decent offer. Links follow. Supplies are limited, so we'll try to update this post when both deals have been fully claimed.

There's also a deal going right now for Amazon Visa cardholders, netting you an additional $30 off any purchase of $150 or more, just use code VISA30 and pay with your Amazon Rewards Visa Card at checkout time. That could get you one super-discounted Shield.

The 16GB version is now sold out, though plenty of 500GB models predictably remain.
