    Gamepop - a subscription based take on the Android games console

    Bluestacks, purveyors of the Android runtime environment for Mac / PC of the same name, have announced GamePop, a subscription based Android games console for release later this year.

    Priced at $6.99 a month with no up front cost for those who pre-order this month (with a likely minimum 12 month contract), Gamepop will offer 500 games on your TV via a custom box running a custom UI. After the pre-order phase the console will be priced at $100.

    BlueStacks has already signed deals with popular game development houses such as Glu and Halfbrick - they are also actively encouraging other games developers to sign up. Developers will earn a share of the subscription fee based on the usage level of their game, as well as any potential in-app purchases.

    This does raise an interest question - for in app purchases in the convention sense to be possible, Google Play needs to be on the device - it needs to be Google approved. It's not clear whether this will be the case but with Google's new games framework widely expected at I/O, it is arguably going to be a must have.

    Head on over to the Gamepop website to learn more, pre-order, or register as a game developer. I have pre-ordered one... are you tempted?

    • Always wanted a second phone for off-work use. This is a nice choice. Water-proof and drop-proof, in this way, i can feel free to do any outdoor sports. Very nice.

    • NOMU, in my mind, is a good phone maker, the phone is strong and tough. Only about function and practicality, nothing with beauty. But this phone, totally change my view about NOMU. Favorable opinions of NOMU double.
