Archos Gamepad, $169 available in the USA starting in February

Posted by – January 13, 2013

Phil Geldard of Archos shows and talks about the release of the Archos Gamepad on the US market, scheduled to happen in February 2013 at the price of $169 MSRP. Archos has been trying to ramp up mass manufacturing to be able to deliver to supply the huge demand worldwide that there is for this really cool product. When Archos started selling the device in Europe before Christmas, they sold out of all of their European stock in 4 hours after making it available on their website. Archos hasn’t experienced such strong demand for a product since they launched their Gen8 Donut/Eclair/Froyo Cortex-A8 Android tablets in 2010. I know I’ll be playing all my favorite N64 games on this device in the months to come, as well as any really cool new Android games that I may find.
