So I've taken a little bit of everyone's advice. I sold off the majority of my stuff at a local retro game shop. With that money and the $175 trade in a Best Buy this week I got a Xbox One. I'm pretty stoked for Fallout 4 so I think I will look forward to new titles from now on. I appreciate everyone's input.

Just got back from the store. Here is my tale....
I took in a Xbox 360 S 250 GB console complete with controller and retail packaging.
I got $40 standard credit and $60 promo credit, so $100 dollars on a BB gift card.
They printed a $75 dollar coupon for any Xbox One system, expires 06/20/2015.
I was given my controller and av cables back. They only need the 360 console and power cable.
My store rep did not test my system, but it was in mint condition and like I said I still had the retail packaging, YMMV on that part.
Also they have 12 months of Live Gold for $40 if you buy an Xbox one. So I got the master chief collection bundle and 12 months gold for $390 with a $175 discount.
The trade in deal is over on 06/20/2015, after that a Xbox 360 trades for the standard $40.
Also now that Microsoft has announced backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 content I no longer had a reason to hold out.
Honestly it seems like as long as your Xbox 360 will power on you will get something for it.

Debating on Titanfall for 360 now that I got the season pass free. I don't have XBL Gold for my 360, but I have some trials and one month cards laying around.
What shape do 360 games come in? I remember getting Fable 3 (which I still haven't played) and Alan Wake years ago and those were a little rough.
I got Bioshock Infinite last year, it looked almost perfect.

hmm anyone able to actually log in? It was giving me errors earlier, now it just goes to a blank white page with the addy
kinda annoying havent been able to actually log in all friggin day
Same for me. I assume it will be this way for a few days. People that want physical rewards are concerned of items going out of stock, and the rest are clamoring to get surveys done. Thus the site is completely hammered. My only advice is to wait it out, or try logging in the wee hours of morning when traffic could be lower.

I kinda hate how we are complaining about who's turn it should be to log into the site. What are we 3 years old in preschool? It doesn't matter if you want physical items or digital, no one is entitled to a "turn" on the website. We all knew this would happen, it does every year. Let's all relax our F5 finger and take a breathe.

I'm not lazy in the least...
Everything installed was not from a google account. Updates to apps- plug-ins for apps- Mapping controls within apps- the roms are in different places as well.
Just the android settings of the stick and then the individual settings of every app installed take a great deal of time to set and get right.
Perhaps you have unlimited time to do this stuff, I do not. Thanks for your answers, but...
Does anyone else have any constructive answers to my original post?
Here is my original questions again:
I'm not yet very familiar at all with inner-workings/procedures/structures of android...
Is there a relatively easy way to duplicate (exact same structure, apps, etc.) one Game Stick to a second?
Is it possible to clone an an exact copy of an existing Game Stick to a second Game Stick (both sticks already modded to CF 1.4) without having to manually set the second stick up from scratch?
Any procedures that could be shared would be appreciated...
I have never imaged or cloned an Android device and it sounds like that's what you want. I'm sure it's possible, but honestly sounds like you need to have a pretty good understanding of how Android works under the UI. That being said I did find this in the Play Store that might do what you want: https://play.google....taniumBackupPro
I found this also, might be useless: http://android.stack...-android-device
Since you have root access with CFW I'm thinking that the TitaniumBackupPro would be a good choice.

So does this ring up at $17 in store or do I have to a hold for pick up to get it at that price? I need to do some trade-ins and haven't done the pick up process before.
You don't have to hold for pickup. Most of us just did that because stores typically carry a small number of these and didn't want to waste the drive. If you grab one from the shelf and walk to the register it should come up $16.97 and the dock should be $4.97.

Okay so I finally have everything set perfectly. I have the Gamestick working exactly as I wanted. I flashed the CFW from the op which is the 1.4 version. I'm running the stick in the dock. I'm using thisI mini keyboard/mouse combo. I have installed the iod emulators. Those are NESiod, SNESiod, GENsiod, etc... I didn't see these emulators in the Play Store so you will have to search for them and copy the .apk files to your game stick and install that way. With those emulators I can play Atarai 2600, NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance and Genesis/Mega Drive all buttery smooth using a wired Dual Shock 3. I choose the wired route for ease of use. The cool part is by using the DS3 with a usb cable it doesn't disrupt you pairing with your PS3.
There are only two tiny issues which I'm listing for reference, not because I'm complaining the least bit.
1. Emulator audio is just a tad off. But you know it's emulated so it won't be perfect.
2. When I unplug my DS3 from the usb cable it boots up my PS3. Not sure why and not a big deal.
I just wanted to say thanks again to zebular. If he hadn't made this thread I would have missed out on a really cool device.

Thinking of picking one of these up from a local store around here. Any suggestions on what accessories to get with it? Dock? extra controller?
Dock is worth the money but the extra controller is a waste. Put those dollars towards a micro SD card instead.

Okay I spent some time with GameStick this afternoon. Here are my findings, I hope they prove useful to someone.
1. Dev mode is joke. CFW install takes all of five minutes and has more options.
2. You will need to install the aforementioned patch for Ethernet to work with the dock.
3. You can install the Amazon App store and load apps from there.
4. The only Android game I tried was Angry Birds Rio. It install and ran but there were graphical glitches all over the place, not playable.
5. Included controller is trash. Tried using it with SNES 9x emulator, input lag was awful.
6. If you have a Moga controller you can pair it by using the Moga Universal Driver from the Play Store.
7. SPMC and Netflix run just great over Wifi, for me at least.
8. If you have the dock you can use whatever size thumb drive or USB hard drive you want. The 64GB drive was most likely a software limitation of the stock firmware.
9. I could not get Google Play Movies to play. I can see the movies but get a play back error everytime.
I'm really thinking that this should be primarily a streaming or web browsing device. It should have been called the stream stick, not the game stick. I know some of you are playing emulators and having fun. I can't help but feel there is a split second delay of some kind. I can't really describe it, but I know these SNES games felt more fluid when I was a kid. Maybe that's just how emulation is going to be? Is there any performance tuning to be done on the Gamestick for emulation performance?

Definitly download mxplayer. Blows the video app from vanilla and you can have videos look full wide screen at the sides and can change between hardware/soft enco.
You want good wifi then add the hdmi extender or use the dock. Speaking of the dock it has a much higher power adapter so I think the dock is a good thing to own for $5 if you can find one.
1) so I don't know if it's because the battery is low, but how do you sync the controller to it? What buttons do I press? Is not showing in the bt settings page.
2) how do you turn it off? I downloaded a software that does shutdown and the screen just got stuck and had to pull it off.
Maybe that is in the dock now I can just press power or something.
1 there is a tiny button the back labeled B/T pair I think. You will need a paper clip to press it.
2 if you have the dock just hold in the power button for about 5 seconds. Be aware this will stop the dock from charging the controller.
