The new GamePop console unveiled by Bluestacks last month, soon launching to compete with the likes of GameStick and the Ouya console, will also be able to play iOS exclusive games its developers Bluestack have revealed.
The GamePop console was thought to only allow Android games to be played, but now promises iOS games on offer as well via a $6.99 per month which can then be cancelled after 12 months, plus an initial $9.99 shipping fee. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the GamePop console and see it in action.
The GamePop look as though it will be the first non-iOS device to be able to run iOS games from the iTunes App Store, using a new technology called “Looking Glass”. The Looking Glass software is a virtualisation system that doesn’t use any Apple APIs, and allows the GamePop devices to run Apple iOS software.
“Mobile gaming has been taking off the past few years. BlueStacks’ vision is to bring that same experience to bigger screens,”-”The all-you-can-eat pricing model for GamePop lets users enjoy a much broader range of games, just as you can watch more movies with Netflix versus the pay-as-you-go model Blockbuster employed.”
GamePop comes pre-loaded with lots of top paid games and connects to an HDTV via an HDMI port. No details on the hardware included in the system has been revealed as yet, only that the BlueStacks GamePop will run Google’s latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
