GameStick Kickstarter closes at just under $650K
The Kickstarter for PlayJam's dongle-sized GameStick Android console thundered over the finish line with a final total of $647,658, nearly 6 and a half times more than the original goal. With three days to go the fundraiser cleared the $500K mark, but a surge saw it soon pass its last stretch goal of $560K. That means the miniature console, which can plug directly into a TV's HDMI port, will be available in four colors including white, black, red, and one voted for by its Facebook community.

PlayJam unveiled the final look of the GameStick controller (into which the console plugs in) earlier this week, the device undergoing ergonomic-minded revisions in light of funder feedback. Playjam's production plan is to get a first commercial run going by next month before shipping the devices to all customers in April.
