GameStick delayed until August
Eurogamer reported today that the Android gaming console known as GameStick was pushed back to a mid-August release.
The reason? According to the GameStick team, it was pushed back so that they could accomodate those Kickstarter backers that pledged $300 (or more). These backers got to have their say on the devices user interface. Unfortunately, the team has said that the review units took longer to get out than initally thought, so these backers have not been able to give their feedback as of yet.
Said the team, “We appreciate that this will frustrate backers keen to get their hands on their device but we did not feel it was fair to bypass this step as it was a key pledge and the feedback will be really welcome. We now expect to ship product from China during early August and expect it to be with you by the middle of the month, prior to units launching in retail.”
Will the current release window be accurate? Or will something cause GameStick to be delayed again?
