Android Microconsole GameStick Planned for September 30 Worldwide Release

GameStick, an Android-based gaming microconsole made by PlayJam that plugs into a TV’s HDMI port, will be released on Sept. 30, according to its Amazon and GameStop pages. Liliputing was first to blog about the release dates. The GameStick raised $647,658 on Kickstarter earlier this year — more than six times its original goal — but shipments to backers were delayed beyond the originally expected April 2013 window. According to a post on the GameStick blog, Kickstarter backers should receive their units by mid-September at the latest.
