GamePop microconsole will run both Android and iOS games
We brought you news before
about BlueStacks' upcoming Ouya competitor, the GamePop. It will play Android games. But, in a surprise twist, it will play iOS games as well.
Using its virtualization software LookingGlass, BlueStacks says the GamePop will be able to run apps designed for iOS devices, all without a stitch of Apple's code -- according to CEO Rosen Sharma.
"Developers really like this because it gives them another way to monetize," Sharma told AllThingsD
. iOS developers looking to get their games running on the GamePop will be able to work with BlueStacks to make it happen.
The GamePop does not as yet have a firm release date but is expected to launch sometime this winter, on a low-cost subscription based model. You can learn more at the GamePop's website
