EMTEC Partners with GameFly Streaming To Bring Cloud Gaming to GEM Box Microconsole in Early 2016

As simple as streaming videos on Netflix or YouTube, players can now
stream high-end console-quality video games to their TV!

PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, EMTEC announced that the company’s forthcoming
Gaming-Entertainment-Multimedia (GEM) Box will feature the
GameFly Streaming cloud gaming service when the microconsole launches in
North America in early 2016. The EMTEC GEM Box offers a wealth of
gaming and multimedia options including GameFly Streaming and Google
Play, along with additional apps and services for movies, music, social
media and web browsing, all in one tiny, affordable device. The GEM
Box
will be available from retailers in North America beginning
early 2016 for $99.00, which includes a Bluetooth gamepad.

“With GameFly Streaming, the EMTEC GEM Box turns your TV into a
true gaming hub, giving players instant access to hundreds of
console-quality video games without having to make a huge investment,”
said Nathalie Lamri, Marketing Director at EMTEC. “GameFly Streaming
promises the best cloud gaming experience, delivering huge franchises
and top titles directly to a player’s screen in full HD.”

Once the GEM Box is connected to a TV and the Internet, GameFly
Streaming brings games straight from the cloud to the living room to
provide a huge variety of console-quality HD gaming – from kid-friendly
casual games to core AAA fare – without the cost or complexity of a
standard console. The GameFly Streaming Service includes leading game
titles from publishers such as Namco Bandai, Capcom, Codemasters, Nordic
Games and Warner Bros. Casual fare is just a click away, with hits like Candy
Crush Saga, Minecraft,
and Crossy Road delivered from Google
Play. The GameFly Streaming service will cost under $10 per
month. The EMTEC GEM Box includes both the Android-based
microconsole as well as a premium Bluetooth wireless controller,
delivering the control that gamers demand right out of the package.

“GameFly has partnered with EMTEC to deliver the ultimate game-streaming
experience to any TV. The EMTEC GEM Box microconsole is designed
to optimize streaming quality, bringing games to gamers immediately,”
said Elad Dror, Senior VP International at GameFly Streaming.

Beyond gaming, the EMTEC GEM Box grants access to thousands of
applications from Google Play or other services such as Netflix, Hulu,
Kodi, Pandora, Spotify and Deezer, and will also come with several
entertainment apps pre-installed including Twitch and YouTube. Consumers
can also rent and download music, television and movies directly from
the Google Play store, or enjoy their own multimedia library and
entertainment content via USB connection or microSD port. Powered by
Gigabyte Technology components including their award-winning
motherboards and graphic chipset configurations, buyers can be confident
of the EMTEC GEM Box’s quality construction, performance and
durability.
