GameStick Hopes To Make A Splash At GDC

on Wednesday, Mar. 20th

We told you about the GameStick before, a crowdfunded rival to the much buzzed about Ouya console. Both are aiming to get Android gaming into a console format and start a brand new front in the gaming war for the the living room.

The devlopement kit model, which they’ve dubbed the DEV unit, is in production and promises to ship “later this month”. PlayJam, company behind GameStick promises some big announcements at the Game Developers Conference next week in San Francisco. In a Kickstarter update yesterday they claimed “over 500 developers have, or are in the process of signing up” to become part of their development program. They’ve also hinted that major retailers are interested in the system.

We know that BestBuy has already picked up the Ouya for distribution, does the box store giant see a growth market here?
