Gamestick is creating a set-top gaming console for the Android space.Â The GameStick is true to it’s name where the data sits on a USB flash drive and the flash drive fits inside the hand held console.
The GameStick is targeted at $79 and plays the same games as other Android platforms.Â Of the 700,000 Android games about 200 have been targeted by GameStick to be developed and fully supported for the GameStick environment.
The console sports an Amlogic 8726-MX processor, with 8GB of flash memory and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. It supports Bluetooth 4.0, and also comes with the standard 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. The console ships with Jelly Bean.
PlayJam, the developers, state they have a working prototype, and is 90% of the way toward getting the final pre-production sample. If you arenâ€™t into the GameStickâ€™s own controller (whenever we see what the final build looks like), the console works with any Bluetooth controller supporting HID.
