Gamestick Coming in October for $80

Today PlayJam revealed that the system will be on retail shelves in North America on October 29, and will retail for $80. The system was scheduled for retail release back in June but ran into a few issues that delayed its release considerably.

Like the Ouya, PlayJam's two inch Android-based console found funding success on Kickstarter, raising $647,658 (it was asking for $100,000) to fund production of the device that plugs directly into the USB port of most modern television sets on the market.

The Gamestick features an ARM Cortex A9 CPU and a Mali 400 GPU, 8GB of onboard storage, a Micro SD slot, built-in Wi-Fi, 1080p playback, Bluetooth 4.0 support, and parental control features with content filters. The system comes with the Gamestick console, cables, one Bluetooth controller, and a power adapter.

    It plugs into the HDMI port, not the USB port.  But unless your TV's HDMI ports support MHL, you'll need to hook up external power as well, which I believe does come over a USB connector.
