GameStick Kickstarter Closes at $647K

February 1, 2013 -

No one can deny that PlayJam's Kickstarter campaign for its GameStick Android console has proven successful, though not as successful as that other Android-based console Ouya. The Kickstarter campaign closed with $647,658 - $547,658 more than it was seeking with its original goal of $100,000 (the Ouya closed with nearly $8.6 million raised).

The Android console that plugs directly into an HDMI port on your HDTV will be available in four colors in early March/April. Unlike other Kickstarter campaigns, the GameStick was already in the prototype stage - PlayJam wanted the extra money to finalize the design and begin production. Obviously the extra money over the initial amount added to the feature set.

You can take a look back at the campaign and its final number on its Kickstarter page.
