You have option to purchase the Shield with a game pad to make use of its gaming capabilities. If you have an NVIDIA graphics card on your PC you can also use the Geforce Experience software to stream games through your WiFi, from your PC to the Shield elsewhere in your house and play on your TV.
The NVIDIA Shield will easily handle streaming apps and allows you to add USB peripherals like keyboard and mouse tracker devices.
Its easy to install Kodi on the Shied as it’s available straight from the Google Play app store, however, apps that are not on the app store will require some extra steps.
