It’s been quite a couple hours for those seeking goodies on the Google Play Store. First we saw BestBuy and Amazon leak the Nest Cam security camera hours before it appeared on the Play Store and shortly after we were treated to an updated Nest Protect. But Google wasn’t finished, posting the Razer Forge Gaming TV Bundle for sale on the Play Store.

Google is selling the bundle – which comes with the Razer Forge TV, controller, and related connections – for $149.99. You can buy additional controllers for $79.99.

We first saw the Razer Forge at CES and got hands on with the device, seeing it go up for sale a few months later. It’s currently available on Amazon for the same $150 price seen on the Play Store and you may note the alarmingly low star rating. Many reviewers claim it’s buggy and perhaps their quest for polish is what led Razer to purchase OUYA only a few days ago.

Key Razer Forge specs:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Console Dimensions: 4.13 x 4.13 x 0.67 inches
  • Console Weight: 0.53 lbs
  • Controller Dimensions: 6.06 x 4.25 x 2.32 inches
  • Controller Weight: 0.37 lbs
  • Memory: 2GB LPDDR3-800MHz
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Processor
  • Wi-Fi 802.11ac 2×2
  • Bluetooth 4.1 +HS
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Quad-core Krait 450 CPU (2.5GHz per core)
  • Adreno 420 Graphics

The console comes with a DC Power adapter and the Serval controller uses 2 AA batteries which come in the box when you purchase the bundle. You’ll also get all the required wires and connections including a detachable game clip.

So how about it… will you be buying the Razer Forge TV Bundle or holding out for something better?
