GamePop is an Android-based video game microconsole and video game subscription service created by BlueStacks and released in 2014.

Platform[edit]

The console is an extension of BlueStacks' software that lets mobile apps run on Windows and Mac computers.[1] It is set to compete with the Ouya and GameStick microconsoles.[2] The company is planning two consoles: full-size and mini, at different price points.[3]

Subscription[edit]

The subscription service includes unlimited access to more than 500 games.[4] BlueStacks will share half of the subscription revenue with developers divided by game usage.[4] Developers keep all revenue from in-app purchases.[1] Developers confirmed for the platform include Glu Mobile, Halfbrick Studios, and Outfit7.[1]
