GamePop-ConsoleThe company that brought Android mobile apps to Macs and Windows PCs is making its foray onto another one of your home’s screens: the TV. BlueStacks’ new GamePop console and subscription service that will bring hundreds of Android game titles to any television.  GamePop is the company’s first hardware venture, and is available for pre-order. It connects to your TV via HDMI, and, the minute you fire the thing up, you have access to several preloaded games. The company has so far partnered with top mobile game developers like Halfbrick (makers of Jetpack Joyride, Fruit Ninja and other hits), Glu Mobile and Outfit7.  The console itself is free through the end of May, once you sign up for a subscription service that costs $7 per month.

Users can then browse through and play others in a Netlix-like buffet style.
