Welcome To Gamestick Gaming. This is an unofficial site to support the Gamestick.
What is the Gamestick? A portable android gaming and entertainment device you plug in to your HDMI port on your tv. The game storage dongle/console slides in the top of the controller for easy storage and portability.
Why bother purchasing a Gamestick when there are other similar devices available? The Gamestick offers a slowly growing library of games in where you can easily pick up and play.
Some of the games you enjoy on a mobile device are better suited on a bigger screen and more enjoyable using a controller rather than a touch screen. Granted, you don't have access to the Google Play store, App Store, or Amazon, you still have 80+ games to enjoy on the big screen with more new ones releasing each week (with some being free of charge). Remember, majority of the games found on Google Play and the other stores are not controller compatible. Plus, you can use TOFU as your XBMC to play videos, music, or view pictures. Not bad for a $49.99 $19.99 console you can purchase from Gamestop.
If I was to purchase a Gamestick, what is the setup like? You pull the dongle/console out of the controller, plug it in the HDMI port of your tv (a small HDMI extender is included if your port is out of reach), and turn the power switch on after its been charged. Hold down on the power button on the controller to get your bluetooth controller paired with the dongle. Once the GameStick loads and connects to your internet, just follow the steps on the tv screen to connect to the Gamestick Store. Gamestick requires a credit card, however; PlayJam (Creator of the Gamestick) has now added PayPal, and Gamestick Vouchers to use with their store.
So now that the Gamestick is up and running connected to the store, how do I purchase the games? You can either go to the settings and add funds to your account or you can click on any of the games, read the description, view the pictures or videos, and click on the Buy button. It will then prompt you to add funds if needed or confirm your purchase. Note: For security reasons it will ask you for your Gamestick password before each purpose.
Are there any other accessories to the Gamestick? Yes, there is the Protective Case and also the DOCK, each sold separately.
What is the DOCK? The Dock is a charging station with Ethernet Connectivity and 3 USB ports to allow microphones, keyboards, a mouse, and other devices to use with the Gamestick. It also provides additional storage via a SD card. (Remember your Gamestick Dongle already has 8 GB storage along with up to 32 GB of extra storage via a Micro SD Slot on it.) This wirelessly charges your Controller. Nice.
Where do I purchase the Gamestick? Well, for $19.99 you can purchase it from Gamestop!
