GameStick finishes at 648% of its original target
Ok, more like 647.658% but who's counting. The Android based micro console that plugs directly into an HDMI port on your TV has been successfully funded. The final product is set to ship around April 2013, which makes the two month long wait not that bad.
For those that missed out on ordering the GameStick via KickStarter can still pre-order it via www.gamestick.tv, once the site updates their inventory.
“We are overwhelmed, excited, grateful, thrilled and everything in between.” says Anthony Johnson, CMO, PlayJam.“The campaign has been an incredible success with support from thousands of backers worldwide but this is just the beginning.The feedback from the Kickstarter community has been invaluable in shaping the final product and we will continue to seek input from those that supported us to ensure continued innovation ahead of a global retail launch.”
The GameStick also saw help from the community when it came to the controller, memory capacity, and even the dock, making it an almost entirely community built product.
