$80 GameStick Console Set to ship in September

Portable, dynamic, revolutionary...! The GameStick is a tiny video game console that fits on a stick not much larger than a USB thumb drive. Just plug it into the HDMI port on your TV, and you can run Android games on your TV using the included Bluetooth game controller.

The GameStick is powered by an Amlogic 8276-MX ARM Cortex-A9 processor and has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage. It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The device runs a custom version of Google Android, and the developers plan to offer support for media center software including XBMC soon, as well as DLNA wireless media streaming.

Powered by Android, GameStick plugs directly into your TV’s HDMI slot. Then get straight into the action with our fully-featured Bluetooth controller – it’s ready to go right out of the box. On the move? The GameStick and controller fit together in one pocket-sized package so you can always take your gaming with you. When it’s time for a fresh challenge, simply access new content via the GameStick storefront – stocked with the very latest unmissable Android games.
