GameStick - Stick and Controller
hope it works out
this looks neat i almost want it. except it looks a little small. i might ask one for christmas. but looks great and neat with the grathics
well its not a preview reall because im using it now. I just got it today and theres a lot that is different about it then what I thought. first off its wider then I thought but they made the buttons the right size to make up for that. second its a little iffy on movement. sometimes it doesn't respond and somethimes it over responds. the only trouble ive had so far is the response from the thumbstick. I just gave up and used the d-pad on it. over all its great and a good buy. id buy it again for sure.
Sounds awesome. But can we download emulators as well so we can play SNES, NES, GEN, GBA, GBC ETC...LET ME KNOW!!!
The thing that sets it apart..
The one thing most people are overlooking, is the Ouya is kind of bulky to try and pocket, unlike the GameStick - which was designed as an Ultra-Portable gaming console. The GameStick designers (PlayJam Ltd.) have already said you can use other controllers and even smartphones / tablets if you like, instead of the controller. And, as for gaming development, an SDK is freely available on the gamestick.tv website... Too bad most everyone is too busy comparing the new consoles, or they could start to understand that they are all created differently, to covet a different feature set. GameStick, Ouya, XBox One, PS4, and even the Wii U all have different bonus features (for lack of other wording).
ouya is better
I don't have anything against Wii players, but I would never buy one for me, and that controller is really weird and plain, does not look confortable at all, I bought my ouya on release day, and let me tell you the controller for the ouya feels awesome! That's it basically, the ouya looks more elegant, what if you loose that little USB thing, you are screwed. That's all folks , haters are going hate, ask if I care, I am happy and my ouya is happy with me too ha..... Ha.....( yes sarcastic laugh) but is true I love it..
Better than Ouya
Can't wait! I hope this will get a good number of sales. The developers seem to know what they're doing!
HDMI thumbdrive video game console!
The website insists it is Bluetooth compatible, so I am looking to see if my PS3 controllers work with it, even though it doesn't look like 'that' bad of a controller. I know I'd like to have this baby in my pocket if I'm going to be going to my wife's parents house for the weekend. Whether it is better or not than the OUYA, I think both have their merit and can both be bought, for cheaper than PS4, Xbox One, or a WiiU. Oh yeah, and you can freely develop for the GAMESTICK platform as well.
Rip off of Ouya?
So this is basically a knock off of the new Ouya system coming out in June, which is also an android based game console, except the Ouya allows anyone to develop games for it. Id rather go for the Ouya as its has a much nicer controllers and more developer support.
