The company went past the $500,000 mark in 3 days to go. The final amount ended up hitting a total of $647,658, which is over 6 times the initial goal.
The GameStick is expected to ship to all customers by April. PlayJam just finished making the final revisions of the GameStick controller. The GameStick has a microSD card slot and HDMI port. The first commercial run will take place next month.
The GameStick is like a game controller with an Android-powered console that is like an HDMI dongle that can be plugged into an HDTV. GameStick can also work as a media center through XBMC and DLNA support. It also supports 1080p HD video.
