I am an original backer through the Kickstarter campaign and received it last week, along with a carrying case. I also happen to own an Ouya, also purchased through the original campaign.

When both of these campaigns were started the 360 and PS3 were newest, most expensive systems. Both had promises of leveraging the growing Android gaming library to bring you a cheaper, simpler console platform to enjoy at home, along with a small, easy to carry system to take with you on the road. Neither unit has lived up to it's promises.

Hardware - 3/5 - The GameStick consists of a large, flat controller, and a stick that plugs into your HDMI port of your monitor or television, along with a whole mess of cables to supply power, charge, and connect USB devices with. The stick itself fits into the oversized controller and is ejected through a sliding mechanism. While the fit of both devices seems quality they are both made of cheap feeling plastic. The controller is quite large and is not contoured in any way, I can't see it being comfortable to use in a long playing session. The buttons are very small compared to the large amount of space on the face of the unit, and the sticks, while usable, feel mushy to me. A child with smaller hands will not find this as easy to use as a Xbox or PS controller. The portability of the system is hampered by the need for all the cords. The "plug and play" of the Stick is only available to newer TVs that supply power over HDMI, if not available you'll need to use the too short "Y" cable provided, or your own, longer, USB cable to supply power to the Stick. The MicroSD slot allows you to expand storage of the unit beyond the 8G (of which about 5G is free). The WiFi worked with my WPA2 home network quickly and easily.

2.0 out of 5 stars You're taking a chance buying this! November 9, 2013
By Daniel
I would wait for a while to purchase one of these. I received my Gamestick on monday and have yet to find a place that it will see a wifi signal. After reporting my inability to connect PlayJam (makers of gamestick) responded with these messages:

------------
"We have noticed that in certain cases, users are having issues with their WiFi connection, which may be down to interference from other devices. This in turn can cause latency with the controller.

The antenna in GameStick is quite small so it can at times get swamped by other signals from more powerful devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets etc

Please try re-booting your router and GameStick, move any devices that might cause local interference and see if that works. Lastly, please also try using the GameStick HDMI extender cable supplied as this will allow the stick to pick up more signal. Hopefully these actions will rectify the issue.

In the background we are working to see if increasing the amount of power supplied to the wifi/bluetooth module will eradicate this issue. We will post a fix for this as soon as we can."
------------
"GameStick uses a combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module served by a single chip antenna. In certain situations this unit can experience interference when in close proximity to other devices or networks running Wi-Fi and or Bluetooth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly buggy, poor support, buy at your own risk November 11, 2013
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a Kickstarter backer and have still not been able to log in or play a single game due to debilitating software bugs. Support has been practically non-existent -- the "fixes" they suggest make one recall IT Crowd's "Have you tried turning it off and on again?"

When I first received the device, I wasn't able to connect to my WEP-protected wireless access point. Support's suggestion was to -- you guessed it -- reset both WAP and GameStick. That fixed nothing.

Support then asked if I was still using the stock power adapter. (Keep in mind this was two days after receiving the device--why would I have swapped it for a third-party adapter, and what would that have to do with WiFi?)

After turning off all security on my wireless router, I was able to get connected and download the update. However, the update did not fix the wireless issue as promised. I can only use the device if I keep my wireless network unprotected 24/7. Not happening.

Did I mention that the controllers randomly disconnect from the device and take 3-5 minutes to reconnect? Occasionally, while reconnecting the controllers, I'll see a stock Android prompt asking whether I want to give the controller permission to connect via Bluetooth. Since the controller is the only input method, obviously I can't say yes--once again the device has to be power cycled.

PlayJam delayed the Kickstarter edition over and over because it couldn't get its act together. Trust me that they will not deliver working devices to their first retail customers, either--just stay away from this waste of plastic.
