    GEMBox console

    A shot in the dark but I was wondering if anyone had tried that GEMBox Android console. I've been seeing it around in bargain bins all over the place at around £20 - £30 pounds and was wondering if I should give it a try for you lot.

    Like I said, it's a shot in the dark as there's a million more powerful Android boxes about, but this one seems to be in the same boat as the GameStick. Heavily reduced and sole off for mere pennies.

    Here's a link, anyway: http://www.emtec-gembox.com/

    I almost did once - it was almost £50 on a bottom shelf in Game, but it wasn't cheap enough for me (and not as cheap as you've seen it obviously!) I'll have another nosey around and see if I can find one - which bargain bin shops are you seeing it in?
    Hmmm... good signatures are hard to come by...

    Surprised no one here mentioned having one. Figured someone would have bought one back when they came out.

    I completely missed them coming out - I only heard about it because someone here mentioned it and I went a'googling

    They were actually on the GAME store website for £20 each at one point. You can still get individual controllers at £4 each.

    Rats, they still have them online but they're £40 now - looks like I missed it!

    Someone on Facebook has one and even founded a group about it.

    I asked him to hack this thing and extract the Gamefly app to see if this would work on the OUYA, so I could use this Service again... but he didn't want to
    So many games, so little time...

    He shouldn't need to hack it unless the GEMbox doesn't support sideloading... simply sideloading app backup & restore should be enough, surely?
