GameStick delayed until August, cites the need for user feedback

GameStick was one of the biggest so-called "game changing" Android-based gaming console to be talk about this year. After successfully completing its Kickstarter funding campaign, GameStick has gathered cash and has shipped out all of its units, but the commercial release has been delayed not once, but now twice.

Today, we learned that the GameStick will not be released to the commercial public until early August at the earliest. The company cites the UI development as the reason for the delay and is waiting on developers to provide valuable feedback. The company does say that manufacturing tooling is complete and that the first Kickstarter controller has rolled off the line.
