You can now buy the Nexus Player at Best Buy with in-store pickup



Last week we caught wind that the Nexus Player would find its way to more retailers. Newegg and Walmart were the earliest sightings of the thing outside of Google Play and they have since gone on sale.

Best Buy has also thrown its hat into the fray, and with a nice bonus: you can buy the Nexus Player on their website and opt for in-store pickup if they have any in stock. This is a great alternative to waiting for shipment and, in the case of RMAs, having to deal with shipping the unit off to a facility for a lengthy repair process (let’s just hope you’ll never have to worry about that in the lifespan of your Nexus Player).

You can order the base unit right here for $99.99, while the optional gaming controller can be added for just $39.99 more.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

You can thank Apple for the lack of a fingerprint scanner on the Nexus 6

  1. I dunno, I really want to like the NP, but I’m not seeing much in the way of exclusive games/apps/experience. There just doesn’t seem to be any “killer app” for it. I’ll probably just stick with the good ole’ Chromecast until something more compelling comes along.

    1. I’m really afraid of dropping the money to buy one….I’ve read too many back-and-forth comments on it =

      1. Same here. I want a next generation player now that my Roku 3’s are old, but I don’t want one that’s flaky or one that’s tied into a marketplace so tight that it hiders it’s usability.

        1. well put…I keep looking for Roku 4 and read they are going to announce it early this year….I cant imagine it being on the cheap side tho given they are aiming for the 4k market =

      2. For Netflix, Youtube and Plex its good. – Also ChromeCasting! Cant comment on anything else. Works better than ATV for me

        1. I’m a huge fan of HBO Go….I think I might be S.O.L on that part. But you dont notice any buffering problems with anything? no Ethernet support scares me a bit

          1. Dont know about HBO sorry (I’m in Canada).. no buffering issues and its on Wifi N network.

  2. Too bad I can’t do in store drop off of my existing unit.

  3. Between Chromecast support and Emulators, I may have to grab one. Got bored messing with my rooted and heavily modded OUYA.

  4. I am waiting for the Razer Forge TV myself personally. Same price point and some features I will use.
