The Ouya Controller Will Change, Because Developers Complained About It

The team developing the Android powered "Ouya" console have listened to the gripes from those who received the Developer Kits and are making some notable changes to the design of the Ouya controller. The d-pad is getting a retro-fit to a design similar to that of the controllers from the 8 and 16 bit eras, as well as some other major and minor changes. (Android, Dev, Next-Gen, Ouya, Tech)

I read it as feedback not complaints. Yet another post on N4G that misleads.

doesn't matter. once (if) this thing hits the market, it's going to go nowhere. hackers will make sure of that.

it's open source.. you can run emulators on it through linux.

So hacking it would do that differently how exactly?

I personally think its great as you can take it on holiday, hook it up to a TV and you have a smart TV and can play pretty decent games and lots of media. Great for kids! Its priced so attractively that I'll probably get one for use on the second TV.

They never intended for that to be the final controller anyways. They said from the moment those came out that they were just placeholder controllers. Mockups.
