Google PlayStore Gift cards have found their way to Canada

image

Google has finally started offering PlayStore gift cards in Canada, it’s about time eh ;-). Denominations of $15, $25 and $50 are available from selected retailers, including those which are listed below.

Best Buy
Shoppers Drug Mart
Target
Mac’s
Walmart
Future Shop

The cards apply credits to your Google Wallet account for purchases of games, apps, books, movies and music from the PlayStore. Possibly even devices we’re not sure as we’ve never tried.

For those of us at Team Android Canada that haven’t had credit cards at one time or another we just used Visa & Mastercard prepaid cards from these same retailers. So if PlayStore gift cards haven’t made their way to your local retailer you can always grab a prepaid Visa or Mastercard and just input the card like you would a regular postpaid version of said cards.

Archos Gamepad to hit North America in February

image

The Archos Gamepad will be making its way to North America in February according to Archos & will sport a price tag of only $160.

Let’s look at the hardware to see what that $160 gets you exactly.
This device adds hardware controls, including traditional gaming buttons and joysticks, to a 7-inch Android tablet. In terms of specs, the GamePad offer 1024 x 600 IPS resolution, which is powered by a 1.6 GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB RAM & a Mali 400 GPU. Archos has recently added Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean to offer lag-free game time.
While the hardware isn’t terrible its been reported that the tablet feels a little cheap & reminiscent of an early mobile gaming system as opposed to the sleek stylish designs we’re use to with the tablets we’ve become use to in today’s market.
If physical controls are what your looking for & your on a budget then this could be the gaming device for you. However if you have the cash to invest in a mobile gaming system with a little higher price tag you may want to wait for Tegra to release its Tegra Shield system. The shield runs off Tegra’s New quad core Tegra 4 chipset, has beats audio a much higher res display & can play games from Tegra zone as well as Playstions Mobile store & the Google Play Store.
Well which mobile game system will you be choosing, or are you good playing games on your phone or tablet with virtual touch controls?
