The lights are on
GameStick is a new gaming console seeking investors on Kickstarter, and it looks like it may be Ouya's main competitor.
Both GameStick and Ouya are consoles designed to be played on a television that work with the Android ecosystem. It seems that the big advantage of the GameStick, is its size. In the image above, you can see that the piece that looks like a thumb drive actually has an HDMI output on it. That's the console, and it fits inside the controller for safe keeping.
The GameStick Kickstarter posted only two days ago, and it has already nearly doubled its Kickstarer goal. You can still invest though, and if you give $79 or more, you will get a GameStick when it releases. You can head here to check out the full pitch video.

Well, they are both small consoles with a similar goal. Hopefully, at least one of them will stand out with good quality.
Wish them luck. Competition is never a bad thing, nor is trying something new.
I would be interested if it turns out that the gamestick is powerful but I highly doubt it.
I don't know what to say other than it looks pretty neat.
Wow, Ouya isn't even out and its already got competition.
the system is very small
These small-fry "consoles" are going to destroy each other before they even release.
Can we bring better awareness to Indie games than consoles! Everyone look up Interstellar Marines on kickstarter, it is totally a dream Game in the making with a massively talented crew!
What? If that is the console I would like to see what is inside.
I like the ergonomics of it compared to the Ouya.
