OUYA and Kickstarter: Bringing about a gaming revolution

Since the smartphone boom, gaming has sort of shifted towards the mobile market; with anyone being able to call themselves a gamer, as a result. There is a big difference between mobile gaming and console gaming; that feeling of being able to play in front of a TV, controller in hand, opposed to a touchscreen with virtual controls, is non-comparable. OUYA (pronounced Booyah, but without the “B”) is the answer to this; bringing mobile gaming to the TV in the form of a cost effective console. Could this be the answer to the problems with gaming today? (Android, Dev, Industry, iPhone, Mobile, Tech)

Glade to see it!! $100 console and they made 2 Million in 24 hours! 28 days left to go! Take that corporations!

Take that corporations?..

(p.s they hit 2million in 48hours, just over 1 million in 24)

The price is great but seriously watching the video it's a hipsters plug & play for indie/mobile games.

I can't see that it will do well outside of a certain market. For the arty types maybe
so.. That is like saying current consoles are for the kiddy types?

Mobile gaming on a TV is FAR, FARRRR from being good for the industry.
Just what the fuck are people thinking?
Not just about mobile gaming. An open console could change the mindset of the industry. If this was steam box on kickstarter it would make 3 billion by sunday.

lol maybe.

This junk wont sell. Useless crap. Nobody wants to play mobile games on their tv....thats why they are called mobile games....cause your away from your REAL console so u waste time playing lame games on your phone.

If it's such a useless piece of crap, how come its earned over 3 million USD in about day?

This isn't about playing mobile games on your TV, it's about creating an open console and making it easier for developers to get their games out. It is a homebrew console.

I pledged for one as it's an interesting project, and even if it fails as a games console it'll still be a great media player connected to the TV. Emulators for old consoles will likely flourish.

It won't replace my PS3, and I'll still get a PS4, but it'll be exciting to see the future of OUYA.

Not really, this is more like stupid people wasting money so then they can go sit out in the streets of whatever occupy city there in and cry about how they have no money and are to lazy to get a job
