So far GameStick’s been a bit of an underdog (it raised a mere 700 thousand dollars on Kickstarter compared to Ouya’s 8 million) but perhaps not anymore — GameStick has landed an investment from video game industry heavyweight GameStop.

I’ll admit, I kind of dig the “Android on a stick” concept. Playing portable Android games tethered to my TV doesn’t sound terribly exciting to me, but the super portability of the GameStick makes the concept marginally more interesting.
I want more like this!
