Google has revealed the Nexus Player, an Android-powered set-top box that can stream movies and play games.
The ASUS-made machine has 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 1.8GHz Quad Core Intel Atom processor and an Imagination PowerVR Series 6 Graphics 2D/3D Engine. The device can be controlled with voice commands but also comes with a custom remote control.
The system can play Android games, and also run entertainment apps including Netflix, Youtube and Hulu. It will also sync with other Android devices allowing users to start watching a movie or playing a game on their phone and then switch to the Nexus Player at any point. A game controller can also be purchased separately for $40.
The Nexus Player will release in the US on November 3rd for $99.
