The pre-order website for the GameStick offers the GameStick and its controller in white for $79, a GameStick Dock for $24.99 and a GameStick case for $9.99. Those who pre-order their GameStick will need to wait for those who backed PlayJam’s Kickstarter campaign to receive their orders first, which are expected to start shipping in April.
As of now, there are no plans to bring the GameStick to retailers, unlike its Android-console competitor, the Ouya, which is expected to be made available for sale at select retailers starting in June. Seeing how small the GameStick and controller will be compared to the Ouya, we wouldn’t be surprised if it made its way to retailers as well. Until that day comes, those who are interested in the GameStick should visit its web store to place their pre-order or buy any of its additional accessories. Just don’t plan on buying additional controllers at this point since they’re currently unavailable.
