Enough With The Ouya Hype

Words With Friends creator Paul Bettner says that the Ouya could usher in a new era of living room gaming. Too bad he's lost his marbles, and anyone who believes him is in for a world of disappointment. (Android, Ouya, PC)

Wow...compared to the hype the ps4 and nextbox have been getting....wait, I've not actually seen any hype for the Ouya as yet. Just fact based article s.

TL;DR edition: " Ouya doesn't have expensive components and allowing a market that is open to developers is bad "

The fact of the matter is Bettner is right.. both him and Tim Schafer understand that these type of devices will continue coming out now. The idea of having an open marketplace may not seem like a bright idea to you.. but it is great to those who bought the device with the mindset that a good majority of the content will be free to play.

"but it is great to those who bought the device with the mindset that a good majority of the content will be free to play."

that's not true.

in the ouya promo video last year, whats-her-face was quite clear in stating that the games that were "free" were just the demo/trial versions.

the Ouya is gonna be a cool supplement to the consoles you already own. the thing is only 99 dollars and all the games on it are either gonna be free or have free trials, plus you can hack it and make games for it easily from what I'm aware of.

It sounds like an instabuy from me, and anyone expecting this thing to directly compete with the neXbox, PS4 and Wii U is a dumbass. the thing is just an android based gaming device you can play on your big screen with actual BUTTONS. that sounds awesome to me.

Im going to keep it simple and say its not good to be so negative towards an idea console related it is a hard business so if you go in you need to be sure and go all out the time of gamers young and old is valuable! We only play the most on what we can I hope even if this ouya doesnt work that it will bring a positive change even if its an expensive one towards the game industry, for all we know we know we might see a small dev house do an ouya game thats handheld console worthy READ: enhanced ports for 3ds/vita but thats my 2 bits

EDIT: misspelled "enhanced"
