      Wow can't believe how many times I heard that they can't give me a refund due to it being shipped....

      Oh Gamestick ... How promising you were in the beginning and now your just a big flop. I guess you couldn't even come close to the Ouya

    7. Creator amaze1 on October 11, 2014

      At 20$ another Gamestick is attractive for me, after all it works not so bad and, if opened as plain android device, useful for many interesting uses (media player, home automation etc.).
      Also would like to have 2 more controllers to use the 4 player games.
      Too bad all above is available to US customers only. Gamestop UK or Italy don't have them available.
      Any idea to have (in a simple ad cheap way) such things here in Italy ?

      rAy, they don't come here so you're wasting your keyboard. Scroll down in the comments section to find some alternative contact info. Spam the crap out of them.

    9. Creator Ray2Jerry on October 6, 2014

      I've tried to "be respectful and considerate" for far too long... you greedy jerks ripped me off, plain and simple. I NEVER got a dock and doubt I ever will. That's theft and fraud, paint it any way you like. It wouldn't hurt so much of Gamestick wasn't a steaming turd of a product in the first place. rAy

      Thank you Justin & Cyclops. I appreciate the info!

    13. Creator Justin on August 27, 2014

      LOL. That would be par for course as I'm sure many backers hate them too.

    15. Creator Cyclops on August 26, 2014

      Samm,
      It sucks that Gamestick has failed to deliver to you but there are 3 things you can do that may have success.
      1.) Email the Gamestick support team directly at support@gamestick.tv
      2.) You could also try to contact the CEO Jasper Smith at his personal email. jasper.smith@playjam.com
      or 3.) Try Emailing Playjam at info@playjam.com
      If all this still fails you could always call them in England at phone number:
      00+44.203.301.5319
      Their postal address is:
      Headquarters 
Centre Point Tower 
103 New Oxford Street 
London, WC1A-1DD, GBR
      I hope this helps and please, let us know how things turn out.

      Where's my dock?! I have been waiting patiently and nothing.

    18. Creator Justin on August 21, 2014

      LOL! Every post from the resident troll is about me.

      That speaks volumes!

    22. Creator Ricky on August 20, 2014

      @Bob, the GameStick was done ages ago but some fanboy idiots like little justin would beg to differ, despite the fact that the investor already throw in the towels.

      Little justin doesn't like truth and facts, but hey he's just some little dumb kid trying to distort reality.

    23. Creator Cyclops on August 19, 2014

      @Mysticmaus,
      Glad to be of service. It's too bad that they took so long, but better late than never. Now that you have decoupled your Gamestick account, perhaps you may want to consider unlocking the Gamestick and using Google Play to access more and better Android games. It is fairly easy to do.

    24. Creator Cyclops on August 19, 2014

      @Bob M,
      Reportedly GameStop invested $5 million into Gamestick. Presumably they were smart enough to include an escape clause if it tanked the way it did. It was only just recently that GameStop began selling them again at $49, and according to a friend of mine who is a store manager they were not selling any at that reduced price. They have now dropped it to a fire sale price in order to get rid of the minimal inventory they have on hand and sales are internet only. They are not shipping to stores for retail sale, unless an online purchaser wants in store pickup. The factory did not undertake a second production run and it is doubtful that they ever will. I asked the CEO of Gamestick if there were any plans at all to fix some of the hardware issues and releasing an updated Gamestick mark II, and there has been no response. There has been no news posted on their sight since February either. Saying that the project is "Done" is probably quite correct. If you want one, buy one now before they are forever gone.

    25. Creator Bob M on August 19, 2014

      If anyone is looking for an extra Gamestick or dock, Gamestop is blowing them out at $20 for the Gamestick, $10 for extra controllers and $15 for the dock. Given that Gamestop was a major investor and partner, this is probably a good sign that the product is done.

    26. Creator Justin on August 19, 2014

      Mysticmaus, glad they got it taken care of. At least they're still responding even if it takes a while.

    27. Creator Mysticmaus on August 19, 2014

      I ment Justin :P , Sorry.. X_x

    28. Creator Mysticmaus on August 19, 2014

      @Cyclops & Dustin

      Sorry for the late reply but thank you for taking the time to answer my question and your help! ,it seems after a week i got an answer from the GameStick Helpdesk , and they decoupled my account , so it is fixed! :)

    29. Creator s on August 17, 2014

      @Cyclops Ah yes, LED pico projectors, and the greatness of MHL, still think Google should be using MHL.
      I've only gotten as far as using BT Controller lite for some tablet + phone gaming, a great way to kill some time.
      Regarding GameStick, I think their burn rate may have been higher than expected, but the real killer was the "Store", if I can get there easily (I'm looking at OUYA's stupid setup) I think there are devs that should get some money out of this.
      With the advent of Chromecast screen mirroring, there's going to be some stiff competition for open HDMI ports coming.

    30. Creator Cyclops on August 16, 2014

      @S,
      Sadly, while Gamestick did mention that they would be able to provide an Image of the OS, they have yet to come through. You could try asking them, but they have become quite unresponsive. Even their support team seems to be ignoring customers with issues.
      I haven't tried to offload the OS from the stick, but it would not be an easy task in any case. For the time being the Hack works well enough allowing you to add your own app launcher, and turning it into a pure Android stick is a simple thing, if you choose to go that route.
      Myself, I have moved on from the Gamestick as it performs so poorly, particularly the controller. If I need a gaming option while I travel I'll use my smart phone and a bluetooth controller. Far more powerful than the Gamestick and much better options, and with the MHL port tv hookup is a breeze. For media streaming I have a Chromecast, and will sometimes even take along my Asus S1 for Big Picture gaming/media viewing.
      I was traveling overseas not long ago and one evening found a nice outdoor cafe on a quiet side street. After a late dinner I pulled out my Asus S1, phone, and controller, and played a bit of Asphalt 8: Airborn by projecting it onto a white stucco wall across the street. The 10' (3 meter) image brought a small crowd of local kids who sat on the curb to watch. The café owner had never seen such a thing and bought me a beer. Good times indeed.

      *DODGING WALLS OF TEXT INTENSIFIES*
      @Cyclops That is quite unfortunate, no chance of getting a ROM backup from the device itself?
      I think I'll try to load up iMediaShare on the GameStick, and the dock with a keyboard & mouse hooked up.
      What I really want to see is something with at least 32/64/128 GB local storage for Android.

      First you talk about internet/wifi for the entire "PLANET", now you've realized your mistake since there is 1% of the planet that has free wifi, therefore you've now corrected it to "COUNTRY". Way to show how vulnerable you are in your own BS statements little justin.

      Hmm and you also said "ONLY 64% hotels offer free wifi". In other words, you're contradicting yourself by saying "THERE IS NOT free wifi on 100% of the planet". You lost again!

      Also, the fact that the majority of the world has free wifi proved how useless your statement is. Way to be the minority little justin, I bet you're still one of those idiots that still use a floppy disk eh?

      LOL what a noob little justin. So if you have a AC Router that has great coverage and yet your internet plan is only 1Mbps downstream, you think coverage is important here? I never mentioned coverage. Looks like you're making up BS yet again!

      Talking about wifi IS talking about coverage. Now you're going to cry about he difference between a wifi radio and coverage or reception?

      LMFAO!!!!

      "Not to mention the fact that you were the one that said no free internet on 100% of the "PLANET"."

      VERY GOOD!!!! You got one right!

      "So, "Because there isn't free internet on 100% of the planet" would imply that all 3 countries, A, B and C don't have free internet."

      WRONG AGAIN MORON!!!! It implies that all three do not have 100% free wifi coverage. Because they don't. NO COUNTRY has 100% free wifi.

      A has 40% coverage
      B has 60% coverage
      C has 50% coverage

      None of them have "100% free wifi coverage"

      LMFAO!!!!
