We’ve reported on Bluestacks and their upcoming Android-powered game console called GamePop in the past and now during Gamescom 2013 after a brief period of silence, Bluestacks has announced that they have signed on even more game developers to supply games for their console system.
If you were concerned that there are not enough Android-powered game consoles getting released over the next couple of months then you’ll be pleased to know that BlueStacks has announced a second Android-powered console called the GamePop Mini. While the original GamePop is still accepting pre-orders, the company has decided to announce this new model.
Recently BlueStacks, a company best known for their software which allows select Android apps to run on PCs and Macs, announced their latest product, the GamePop. For those of you unfamiliar with GamePop, this is a home gaming console running Android to play Android games on but features a subscription-based business model where players can access all the games in full for a monthly fee.
Recently BlueStacks had announced that soon it would be releasing its own Android-based console system called GamePop which would be subscription-based in terms of accessing games. The unit itself has been up for pre-orders where you could get the console for free if you paid for a year’s worth of subscription service.
The world of Android-powered game console has just gotten a little bigger today as BlueStacks has announced that they are getting into the console world with GamePop. What is interesting about GamePop isn’t so much that it is an Android-powered game console, there seems to be a new one every couple of months, but its business model as it will be a monthly subscription service.
