BlueStacks has just unveiled a brand new console known as the GamePop Mini, which so happens to be a sibling to the larger sized GamePop console.The GamePop Mini would arrive with a $6.99 monthly subscription, while opening up the doors for you to access over $200 worth of games – and for free, to boot. Sure, there might not be any free lunch in this world, but free games, that is something else entirely. The GamePop Mini will be powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the operating system of choice, and it will hook up to a TV via an HDMI cable.
The GamePop Mini’s larger sibling, the GamePop, will cost you $129 after the initial promotion ends, while the GamePop Mini would be made available for free as long as you decide to subscribe. There is a drawback when it comes to the GamePop Mini, however, and that would be performance since it uses a different chipset that will obviously run slower. So far, we do know that some of the early partners would include HalfBrick (the ones behind Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride), Glu (maker of Blood Brothers), and kids-app developer Intellijoy among other 500 mobile gamemakers.
