PlayJam’s Android-Powered GameStick Will Only Cost You $80

It looks like Ouya isn’t the only sub $100, Android-powered micro console in town! Gamestick is offering pre-orders on their thumb drive shaped console for $79, and it will be released in July.

Much like the Ouya, the Gamestick was originally crowdfunded with a Kickstarter campaign and aims to dominate your living room with affordable, quality Android gaming. Also like the Ouya, Gamestick has handpicked a slate of games, but has no Google Play support.

The console itself is hardly larger than a USB stick, but with a HDMI out on the end to install directly into any HDTV. In that little space, Gamestick’s packed a 1.5-GHz dual-core Amlogic 8726-MXS CPU, a dual-core Mali 400 GPU and 1GB of RAM as well as 8GB of flash memory (expandable with a micro SD card). Its bluetooth controller brings the Wii classic controller to mind. It’s a simple, dual stick controller that looks very clean. As an added bonus, the tiny console actually fits inside the controller for maximum portability

Laptop Mag recently got its hands on the stick, and it’s looking great. You can check out its hands on preview at the source link below and you can pre-order a Gamestick at the company’s site.
