    If I didn't already have an Ouya I wouldn't mind throwing $20 on this. Definitely not $80 though haha.

    Damn, that's a pretty nice deal.

    If I had an extra $20 to waste on stuff like this, I'd probably grab one. It'd definitely make a nice retro emu station.

    I was reading around and canceling my order now. It's a POS apparently that can't sideload APKs. AVOID!

    You can "convert" any Gamestick to a "developer" version which allows you to sideload various apps and things.

    This has XBMC, and for another $15 you can get a dock allowing you to connect HDD's via usb. I may do this..

    CGR did a good review of this system. Might pick one up just out of curiosity.... and 20 bucks? Worth it! lol (Just don't expect a lot.)

    Checking the market place, this thing doesn't seem so bad, specially for that price. Check the official site and some reviews where you can ;o

    Err, no actually, the site I found the guide on is a warez site so I can list it here >.>

    But that guide actually seems like a much better/quicker option, so if I were you I would follow that :lol:

    Neat. I'll most likely use my Shields HDMI output to make it my games hub, but this is a super cool and cheap option to play some android games.
    Better then lolouya

    And on a week where I'm broke.

    If anyone wants to pick me up one of these I'd be willing to trade a copy of Bravely Default, or the Majora's Mask soundtrack from last year's CN reward (sealed but with a small crack in the back of the case).

    Better than OUYA my ass! You do know that the Game Stick is weaker than OUYA, right? Anywho I would love to get my hands on one of these. The price is fair and I wonder how well it could handle the OUYA's UI.
