With a handful of Android gaming consoles set to launch soon, Bluestacks is making sure that its upcoming GamePop platform stands out from the rest by offering iOS games for the console as well as those of the Android persuasion. GamePop will sell the console for $129.99, and will offer content through a monthly subscription service which will cost $6.99.
GamePop will be utilizing a new mobile-to-TV technology called “Looking Glass” which renders iOS games compatible with non-iOS devices. Subatomic Studios, a maker of some popular iOS games will include its titles in GamePop’s subscription service.
Offering iOS games will defiantly set the GamePop Android micro-console apart from others, such as the Ouya and Project M.O.J.O., and could help the console pull ahead of the competition as Android micro-consoles debut over the course of the year.
