PlayJam announced stretch goals for its diminutive Android-powered gaming console today, including support for MicroSD cards, according to a post on the GameStick Kickstarter blog.
The stretch goals and pledge thresholds include:
- $320,000 — optional black controller
- $450,000 — optional red controller, plus an additional color to be decided on the GameStick Facebook page
- $560,000 — microSD support as a standard part of all GameSticks
The microSD slot will support up to 32GB of expanded storage, a significant increase to the GameStick's current 8GB capacity.
PlayJam also announced that it's added a "handy carry case" to the $89 and $135 pledge bundles. The "nearly 600" who've already ordered the console will receive two carrying cases.
The console reached its initial $100,00 funding goal within 30 hours of launching the Kickstarter project. Based on user requests, PlayJam previously announced support for XBMC (Xbox Media Center) open source media player and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) to help the stick-shaped console communicate with other electronic devices, via an optional firmware update expected in September.
As of this writing, GameStick's Kickstarter project —where pledges of $79 or more receive the GameStick and accompanying controller — has earned $286,656 in pledges from 2,920 backers.
