NVIDIA is getting in on the Black Friday action, offering its own Shield handheld gaming device for $249, down from the usual price of $299. And to sweeten the deal, the manufacturer is throwing in a free carry case, valued at $39.99, as well as two free games — Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 2 and Expendable: Rearmed.

Here's what our own Jerry Hildenbrand had to say about NVIDIA's Android-powered handheld in his review of the device:

"The NVIDIA Shield isn't going to appeal to a wide audience, but I don't think it was designed to do so. It's clear that NVIDIA had one thing in mind when the built the Shield, and that was to create a top-of-the-line gaming device that runs on the Android platform. NVIDIA certainly succeeded, and for anyone looking for the ultimate Android gaming system has found it in the Shield."
