Micro-Sized Console for TV Gets $100k on Kickstarter
California based team called PlayJam is responsible for launching a new sensation on Kickstarter called GameStick. The device is being hailed as an Android-based micro-console, which already triggered massive support from people over on the ever-expanding crowd-funding service Kickstarter.

According to the developers, the system is going to have over 200 games, which are already in development. The system will supposedly cost $79 and it contains Amlogic 8726-MX CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage.

The GameStick surpassed $100,000 in funds on Kickstarter during a single day. The project currently boasts 1,497 backers and $147,048 pledged as support.

Check out the dev. video below:

The GameStick carries the same ambition and idea as OUYA -- also an open TV console -- with specs similar as mobile devices. OUYA's Kickstarter campaign reached an impressive $8.6 million.

Awesome idea, except.... the visual appeal (graphics on the screen) aren't quite there yet.
Aaaaand I think most ppl like the "bulky" console controllers cuz they sit better than the old school 8 bit nintendo controllers (which is what this one looks like)

Next-gen consoles are probably just around the corner and yet it's probably platforms like these that are going to make the most profit, along with tables and smartphones.
