Fancy a slightly more portable games console? The first Xbox was the size of a small planet, the PS3 the size of a George Foreman Grill. Surely with some state of the art tech someone out there can make a good portable console? Yes, yes they can. It’s called the GameStick, it’s up on Kickstarter and here’s the blurb:

There are over 1,416,338,245 TVs in the world but less than 1% of them are used to play games! Crazy.

We think that’s because traditional games consoles and content are too expensive. So 12 months ago, we set out to challenge that by making the most affordable, open and portable TV games console ever created. At $79 GameStick offers the most affordable route to playing games on your TV.

Open: The mobile games market thrives on the use of open platforms and we wanted to bring the same ethos to TV. Open, so that more developers can innovate and develop quickly. Open, so that players can access more great games and get better pricing. Open because it’s about time that the walls keeping independent developers out are smashed down. And so, harnessing the Android ecosystem, GameStick is a completely open platform. If you love creating or playing games, you will love GameStick.

Portable: People are always on the go. Traditional consoles are big. We set out to create a big screen games console that was so small you could pop it in your pocket. It’s tiny! So small in fact that GameStick fits inside it’s own controller so you can take all your games with you to any TV you like, anywhere. Simply plug it into the HDMI slot, grab the controller and play away.
