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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a joke? April 25, 2014
I've heard about GameStick before and wanted to try it even though I have an Ouya, I happen to come across it on sale on GameStop's website for $50 so I went for it. I got my GameStick in today all excited to see what it had to offer, I hooked it up to my PC monitor and quickly ran into my first set of problems, paring the controller took nearly half an hour which is ridiculous and that's after reading the directions and knowing alot about wireless electronics. The my monitor randomly started turning off and on during setup, I unplugged it and reset GameStick and it happened again so I hooked it up to my TV (with and without the HDMI extender) and the same thing would happen. I finally got so fed up I Googled it and seen where someone suggested going to settings and dropping the picture down to 720p which worked, but I have a top of the line LED/LCD HDTV (sure as *** can't get it at Wal-Mart) so I really shouldn't have had to drop the picture down when it is perfectly capable of running 1080p.

So after I was finally able to get that solved I ran into another problem with the controller not responding and lagging, I turned off all wireless devices and the wifi on my TV and still it would not work with me sitting on my couch 9 ft. back from my TV in my average sized bedroom, I had to literally get right up to my TV for the controller to even respond correctly and I'm not kidding, the signal just isn't strong enough. I'm using the HDMI extender and it did improve the signal slightly but I still can't play anything.

I can't really tell you much about the system its self because I can't even control it, I'll probably have to get the dock (another $40) so I can have the GameStick on my entertainment center for the controller to work.

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.
