OUYA Working with nVidia, Getting Meteor on Board

GeekParty just received an update on the OUYA project. Not only are they working with nVidia on the chipset, but there’s a new developer signed on to the games side of things. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s the email.

Yes, it is good news that Nvidia is working with them.

oh the irony... The very thing that was supposed to be threatening consoles, becomes a console

I thought people preferred playing these games on their phones? have things changed in the last few weeks?

Let's see what the Unity engine has to offer looking forward to this

Be careful Sony and Microsoft simple stuff sometimes beat advanced stuff... Look at Minecraft.

If you want an android console just get a android tablet with hdmi out and a ps3 or xbox pad, done and you have a tablet on the go too. Bargin.

How is that cheaper or better than buying a $99 dedicated gaming console??

Just because the Ouya runs Android doesn't meant that it's going to play some kind of shared library of Android games. I would wager that most of the games that will be designed for the Ouya aren't going to be compatible with whatever tablet you're telling people to buy.

Plus, are you really hooking your tablet into your television to play games? Don't you still need to look at the screen in order to control the game? That sounds super fun.

Plus, it's $100.

Plus, you should probably just support it because indie devs don't have a great outlet for releasing console titles. Why do you hate independent developers? You bastard.

Firstly you can go out and buy one tomorrow or better yet on amazon right now and have the same experience.

So far all they have shown off is games that are already on the android market and the likely hood of developers making games exclusive for it is soo small considering it will have a tiny market share and plently of android games already support game pads, so it doesnt take a genius to work out that the mass majority of games will just be thrown on it.

Most android tablets support ps3 pads over blue tooth and 360 pads over usb, you use those to control it.

For us in europe it probably wont be equal to $100 and you can get plently of cheap tablets that will run games like shadowgun, minecraft and gta 3 perfectly fine.

I also own an android and have supported plently of indie developers by buying their software and not hacking and rooting my phone like ouya and suggesting you should do with their console, which will just lead to loads of piracy.
