The Ouya games console, which made headlines for earning more than $5m in investment in less than a month through KickStarter, could be as small as a Rubik's cube when it goes on sale.
...and just as puzzling
Which is explained by the mobile hardware...
i love that picture..LMAO takes 3 people to operate that rubiks cube..no bob rotate left..lol here is the size for the OUYA http://i.imgur.com/mhdNP.pn... just big enough in size so you could put in the case a 2.5 " SATA laptop Hard Drive if you wanted.
I am really confused by this. If you already have phone/tablet that can play these games why spend $99 more for something that does the same thing?
Convenience, mostly. The convenience of having the same thing hooked up to a larger screen at all times, really.
what slap said. Imagine going home and booting up the 50 in LED and turning on the power of Ouya, kicking back in your comfy sofa with a beer by your side and your controller ready to play some Fire Boy and Water Girl or Gravity Rush. This is going to give Nintendo a run for there money. If I had a kid that was 10 years and under and the wanted a gaming device for their bday I would pick this over the WiiU, 360, PS3 because of price difference and cheaper games.
Sorry but I think there will be a handful of people that "desire" to play Fire Boy and Water Girl on their big TV with a beer in hand. And unless I missed something Ouya won't be playing Gravity Rush as its Vita exclussive.
"If you already have phone/tablet that can play these games why spend $99 more for something that does the same thing?" well yes and No..there is some major overlap, but what your saying is pretty much with anything like why get a tablet when you have a laptop, or why get a laptop when i can just hook up a Keyboard Case to my tablet! there is point's of about each product that would make a key difference. example: with the Tegra 3 for instance there is ver's of the Tegra 3 that are running not only with a Higher Core freq. but also the onchip GPU inside the chipset will run much higher. also there is the fact that unlike Mobile devices the OUYA Core hardware will be the same chipset though out it's production run and with mobile smartphones and Tablets there is quite the many difference's in the core clock freq/ram and GPU's of many Mobile smartphones just like the PC. that's where a static design of a game console comes in. yes you can add in more storage and the core system is hackable in the case of the OUYA, but the core hardware on every unit is the exact same. in many times with smartphones a new smartphone get's released every month. by many company's sometimes many model's all with slight difference in its hardware capability. thus its not static. and evey OUYA will have a game pad, but also that game pad will have a touch screen just like every other smartphone. but the screen is on the game pad so it offer's that type of I/O functionality like a WiiU or a PSVita.
Well when I see it in the walmart clearance bin for 20 bucks I will believe it. Until then I take this as a typical kickstarter scam and a piece of crap
Bad Troll, Badddddd. Go back to paying for your DLC and $60 games muhahahahahahaha.
speaking of trolls, why don't you go back to your cellphone games that have no depth, story, or good gameplay
play nice boys
Ouya will kill mobile, console AND PC gaming!!!11 /sarcasm portraying the non-existent logic of those saying phone games and tablets are the doom of consoles and dedicated gaming handhelds.
The logic is there actually as mobile gaming takes up 70% of mobile gaming revenue now. Pretty existent to me.
A large portion of market share still doesn't make the competing devices doomed. They can and will continue to co-exist just like PC gaming and consoles have done. No logic there whatsoever.
I believe you and have serched for decent android games on my phone that apeal to me as a long time core gamer and cant find a one. I see the potential, but seems like all crap.
I never said they couldn't co exist you said a statement that was wrong so I commented on it. I personally think they can exist together but you said false statement that it has non existent logic which isn't true at all. The evidence shows mobile is something t be feared.
What would be really cool is if you could send content from any mobile device to the Ouya to play it on the big screen. Imagine taking a bunch of.pics with my phone and then sending them to the Ouya to display them on my big screen T.V. Sending saves from your mobile device to the Ouya is a good idea as well. XperiaRay
or... all the pics you took with your phone that you downloaded to your PC anyway could then be accessed by a console via a media center like app... oh wait that was done in 2005. I just think Ouya is trying to fill a space that quite frankly there really isn't a space/need for.
Sweet. That means that it will be that much easier to throw it out the window when you realize that it wasn't worth the money or the wait.
