Google’s Nexus Player offers streaming and gaming for $99

Google regained its streaming cred with the Chromecast, and now it’s looking to offer up another set-top box. The compact Nexus Player will handle streaming, games and run Android apps. An included remote wrangles navigation with voice controls for finding the content you’re after on the ASUS-made gadget. For those gaming sessions, a $39 controller can be tacked on as an additional purchase. […] It’s also the first device to run Android TV, an effort detailed back at I/O and promised to arrive alongside Android L, er… Lollipop. And yes, you’ll be able to “cast” stuffs from other devices to your TV. In terms of content options, you can expect Netflix, Hulu, Food Network, Travel Channel and more for now — but there’s no mention of either WatchESPN or HBO GO. […] the $99 unit will be available on November 3rd, however if you’re anxious to lock one down, you can pre-order the Nexus Player on October 17th. – Billy Steele,Engadget
