Earlier this month PlayJam announced to project backers the release of their KickStarter funded GameStick micro console would slip by nearly three months. In a message to its 5,691 backers, the company explained the setback as falling victim to the success it had created.
“The main production run has gone from a few thousand units to tens of thousands of units. This has meant that we have had to change production methods and move to high-volume tooling.”
However, this left some backers angry as there was no apology for the delay which came over as arrogant.
To wet developers appetite, the company have now released a unboxing video of what project backers will receive. Aimed mainly at developers, these units will be slightly different from the consumer model expected later this year.
Update: More delays, GameStick has been delayed until August owing to required refinements to the user experience.
