GameStick console reaches Kickstarter goal in one day

After the success of Ouya, PlayJam — the company responsible for SmartTV — has created and already met a Kickstarter goal for its own GameStick console after just one day on the popular crowdfunding site. The tiny, Android-based console needed $100K to finish production and has so far made $108,677 as of the time of publishing. (Android, GameStick, Industry, Jasper Smith, Kickstarter, PlayJam, Tech)

They got my money. But they better get to market fast because the Asian market is exploding with Android media players.

To be honest am bored with the "Me2" generic Android gaming devices. If people honestly believe the systems will receive games that aren't simple play store rejects they are nuts.

The highlight of this console will be Angry Birds & Minecraft Pocket Edition.

This thing is going to be a real monster it can almost play Modern Combat 3 at 5 frames per second! http://www.youtube.com/watc... table using the same processor on left, anyone who buys this believing it's actually capable of powering even basic 3D games is a tool.

I kinda disagree, yeah android games will always be a little shallow kiddie pool compared to the average console game, but they are cheap and in abundance. Not only that but they quality of said android games are really getting better thanks to the uprising Unity 3D game engine which makes the game artist capable of creating full games on their own producing some really great games.

the way i see it, this in no way, shape or form is going to, or is even intended to replace a console by any means. It's just a really good portable gaming console. Picture this, you visit a relatives house, they have nothing for you to do and you're growing bored. With TV not cutting it, and no console in sight(nor do you want to go through the trouble of setting it all up in a house that isn't yours) you just reach into your pocket, pull out the game stick, plug and play!! better than trying to play these games on a tiny phone screen, and better than killing your tablet/phone battery and only getting like 1hr of play time before it dies

for $80 you get a HD console with an evergrowing market, and all you can play games!(many of which will be free!)that's a damn good deal IMO

It's all about developing the right games. Something like Limbo or Bastion could potentially run on this.

Somehow the uneven analog placment looks wrong.
