FYI it comes with a remote, the pro version comes with the controller
Reduction of power consumption? ;)

It's because of such actions, honest customers end up paying for it. Please don't abuse policies as it hurts everyone.
I tried reasoning with the guy but he replied saying it's convenience and I should not assume stuff because he knows what he is doing. Face With Rolling Eyes

Just got one at Best Buy. They mistakenly sold my reservation but offered me the Shield with controller for the same price for the mishap.

Holiday returns are in effect so you have until Jan. 6 to get a refund if it goes cheaper/prefer something else.
God damn you are one lucky chap
Enjoy your device

Is this necessary if one has an android smart TV? not sure what all the buzz on RFD is about this product. Genuinely curious.

Pro comes with both remote (rechargeable) and game controller.
The gaming edition comes with both as well, but same remote as this slim version (replaceable battery)

Now best buy Canada messes everything up by calling slim version gaming, and vice versa the one with gaming controller 'the streaming edition'.

Also note that those that want cheaper than retail, version that comes with both remote and controller, but only packaging different older box) , Canada computers has it for $239...only few left at various locations. 10 percent off for those that want open box. Picked one last night.

LOL, new box packaging at $279 at cc. Ridiculous, as that is all that's different.

Thanks OP. Picked up at local Best Buy (price beat for ~172).
Also impulse bought 4k UHD Hacksaw Ridge for $18.99. Wanted to see it, figured the price was pretty good.

Genuinely no android smart tv regardless of price come close to this box, which is why all my smart tvs are network disabled and have shield attached to it.
This would be my 5th box that I'll probably pick tomorrow at best buy, for gifting purposes.

Anyone know how is the compatibility with Apple products... like casting photos and videos or even mirroring iphone screen to shield?

Just got it. Remote needs more heft. Feel crummy next to my metal Samsung one but Google assistant is much better than Bixby...
