The Kickstarter campaign for PlayJam’s attempt at an Android-based gaming console – the GameStick – has ended. The campaign met all the stretch goals that the company had set out for, and made $647,658 through 5,691 backers. The GameStick will be released in four colours – white, black, red and another colour that will be picked through a vote on Facebook. There is no release date for the Android-based console as of yet.The Kickstarter campaign for the GameStick had started in early January. It is not much bigger than a pen drive and the portability afforded by the small form factor could possibly be one of the system’s main selling points. The form factor allows the console to be stowed inside its own gamepad and draw power from the HDMI port. It will run on Jelly Bean and will be powered by a dual-core Amlogic processor. While not as powerful as the Ouya, which runs on Nvidia's Tegra 3 CPU, the GameStick does have the price on its side, costing $79 as opposed to the Ouya's $99 price tag.
