Are Android consoles the future of video games?

As a gaming platform, Android is still in its infancy. But as a relatively open operating system ripe with opportunities for simple pick-up-and-play games, it quite possibly could be the platform of the future.

Android sells good in Phones, anything else it laggs behind.

And the reason they sell well in Phones, lets admit it - its dirt cheap.

Android doesn't exactly sell phones... You realize it's an operating system, not a phone manufacturer.

you realize the answer is still no.

Actually, Google bought Motorola to manufacture their own Nexus-branded phones. So that argument is debatable. Regardless, console games will always thrive

If you claim Android phones only sell so well because of the cheap price, you fail to see the big picture.

They sell so well because there's wide array of Android phones available from all price ranges ranging from budget to premium models, basic to customized models, small to large sized models.

You get what you pay for so to speak.

Absolutely not! Why would anyone ask this stupid question? It's a phone in a box and like Ouya you buy a new one every year which sounds like a disaster to me. I will always stick with the big boys when it comes to hardcore gaming as far a casual I'll never go that route.

I played around with the Ouya a little. I give it no chance. It won't sell enough to warrant a second gen. No worries. They are living in a dream world. It's so outdated already it's not even funny. Nobody will buy this thing. Sorry guys, just reality.

From a developer standpoint it is a nice idea. An open console which replaces a PC. But who has one? Without market you can't build specific for one device all you want. You won't sell your games.

Thanks for the info Ju. I haven't played one at all and never will. I'd say your dead right about this thing.

Couldn't agree more. It's so blatantly obvious that it'll be a failure (in terms of replacing consoles or being the future of video games), it's just painful. Too bad some people will support it while thinking it's the future though...

So the ouya will play Android base games on your tv instead of your phone or tablet??? Do I want to play cut the rope on my tv or phone???

pat_11_51233d ago

I don't think it will be a disaster. There's a certain audience out there that would definitely be into something like this.

I don't see it taking off with hardcore gamers though.

Give it 2-3 years and will offer more diverse and richer gaming experiences. The Tegra 3 is capable but Tegra 4 is a game changer in a $99 price range.

I can't imagine another console competing with Nintendo, MS, and Sony. Sure it will meet hobbies or casual gaming, but it will be a long time before you get high quality games with a small box
