    So guys, I got the Nvidia Shield Tablet, however I am kind of limited in what I can play because I don't have a controller. Yes I can plug in a mouse and keyboard, but that is not exactly portable...


    The new Shield Controller looks pretty god, however the price tag right now is 70€. The old one is not available where I live tho.


    I know there are some features that only the original one has, like the Shield Hub button, the volume buttons, the Wi-Fi direct connection and so on.


    Is it even worth it? Should I just get a Bluetooth controller and be set?


    Also, I haven't tried Console mode yet... Because I need a controller... Do I need the original one for that?


    Thanks for all the replies!
