The team at GameStick in San Francisco has proven that with a great idea (and a little portability) you can go far in life. The Kickstarter campaign of this exciting new system wrapped up at around 4 a.m. Pacific Time Zone, but not before racking up more than six times the initial $100,000 goal.
It did this because of its construction, its access to a network of more than 700,000 games by using the Android network, and a proactive development pattern that is leaving PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo in the stone ages of console gaming. Here’s how it works: slide the GameStick out of the controller, plug it in to your television, and use the controller to access the Android network and play games. Most games, according to the developers are either free to play or cost a few dollars each. Just when I thought I’d licked my video game addiction, here’s GameStick pulling me back in!
