OUYA - a revolutionary idea?

Xbigy Games' Kamran Draeger writes:

"A group of gaming enthusiasts have combined forces to create a new console, OUYA.

Based on the Android platform, its software is open source so that nobody is faced with the hurdles today's home entertainment systems put in the way of developers and hackers.

When you look at the specs of what the new hardware is supposed to achieve, it's understandable why some gamers aren't seeing OUYA as the next big thing. However, the idea of creating something that has the potential to give users the freedom of a computer, while sustaining the "clean" interface of a console, could bring forth an experience that could allow hardcore tech fans to find just as much enjoyment as the plug-in and play casual gamers." (Ouya, Tech)

Yea but i'm not sure if we are gonna get real quality games for free and i also would not wanna see ads in game while playing.

Ads are there so people who make the game can make a living. That's why it is usually either 'pay for the game' or 'get ads'. You have to remember that some indie devs are making games out of their own time and money and are hoping their game will be successful so they can make a living.

...and/or micro transactions. Personally I don't like any of them I would rather pay more and get a 'game' that I can play fully without being irritated by ads or forced to purchase this or that to move forward in the game!

And yes I am not a great fan of DLC if it comes at the expense of cutting content from the original game.

Seems like something cheap that could supplement my PS3 and its exclusives. I am a huge fan of open-source and user created content so I think that area of the product is fascinating. How many short PSN games have come out like Journey, Limbo, and Braid, that are cheap and awesome and don't need AAA graphics? Not enough. I think this could be a cool new product that would cater to those devs. Plus, it's 99 bucks. I'll check it out.

well, not exactly REVOLUTIONARY but one damn good idea which can help this industry expand easily.

i think it will help people to test their innovative ideas without the fear of losing millions, not to mention help normal people with great ideas making them into reality, all that with no strings attached.
