After a couple setbacks, the GameStick portable Android console is finally making its way to Kickstarter backers. As reported by The Verge, the GameStick blog has announced the device should be in the hands of all backers by the middle of September. And if you didn't jump on the crowdfunding train, GameStick will start arriving at retailers later next month.
While similar in concept to the Ouya console, GameStick does away with the box and instead uses an HDMI dongle capable of snapping right into the back of the controller for extra portability. The controller has undergone some minor changes since the Kickstarter campaign, and shipments to backers--initially planned for April--were subsequently moved to June, then August.
"The controllers are fantastic--the changes we outlined in the previous post have all been incorporated and we’re confident you’re going to be really happy with the result," reads the post on PlayJam's blog. "We are now poised to go into full production."
Pre-orders of GameStick are currently available through retailers like Amazon for $80, with an expected ship date of September 30.
