BlueStacks GamePop launch pushed till late Q2 2014

Originally expected to arrive in the winter of 2013, it now looks like the BlueStacks GamePop console will not be available until sometime in late Q2 2014. BlueStacks is still accepting pre-orders for the console, though judging from what we saw last week, and coming out of the Game Developers Conference (GDC) -- it appears they are in somewhat of a transitional phase.

BlueStacks GamePop game console resurfaces with a new look

BlueStacks announced the GamePop Android gaming console way back in May of 2013. The GamePop was said to be a subscription based game system. Pricing was set at $99.99 with a monthly fee of $6.99. BlueStacks even offered an early bird deal which included a free console if you were willing to pre-pay for a year long subscription. It was all beginning to sound good, then we saw BlueStacks announce the GamePop Mini, and then the talk went quiet.

BlueStacks adds five new developers ahead of GamePop console launch

Th GamePop is from BlueStacks, the same company that has been allowing users to run Android apps on a Mac or Windows computer. That aside, it looks like the folks at BlueStacks have recently announced five new developer partners.

GamePop console gains iOS game support, will continue running Android

BlueStacks has announced a new feature for the GamePop game system. The GamePop console was announced a short while back and was immediately thought of as a competitor to other Android game consoles such as the OUYA and GameStick. Of course, in addition to this new feature, the GamePop already had a unique selling point in that it is a subscription based service. Anyway, this latest GamePop announcement is game related and about how it will be able to play iOS games.

BlueStacks reveals GamePop console pricing

BlueStacks announced the GamePop console earlier in the month and opened up pre-orders immediately. More to the point, BlueStacks were giving a console and controller for free if you signed up for a year long subscription. The subscription is priced at $6.99 per month and includes access to (at present) more than 500 games. The one catch with that offer is how you have to pay -- for the full year up front.
