The Ouya is Near

GamingXL: Ouya is a small console with Android as operating system. It’s by far not as fast as the Xbox or Playstation with only a Quad-core processor with 1Gig of Ram, but the size and the price of only 99$ makes up for that. It is ready to be shipped to the people who have donated on the 28th of March. (Dev, Mobile, Ouya)

Retailers aren't going to carry the Ouya, because they don't stand to profit from selling games for it. It's a bit sad, but I think the Ouya is basically going to be DOA.

Yep the whole "crowdfunded" console thing sounded cool, but when it comes to making it profitable in stores, it will likely fail. Sad that it will have to happen like that, but Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo (maybe Valve) will control the retail stores.

I dunno. Valve is also digital distribution. That is why stores dont wanna carry it. Unless valve uses blu rays for physical distribution.

They should integrate Ouya technology into the PS4. So android on PS4.

It's a phone in a box...that you cant call people with.
Just play simple games that usually should be free...

Yay..it's going to change the console market forever!! Lolz...

What's Ouya?

I thought this thing was released months ago and had already died.

Ouch. There is a lot of hate for this little box here. While I am skeptical of its impact, I look forward to seeing how open the OUYA is promised to be. If it truly is open and everybody is allowed to tinker with it, I can see this being a nice little box that can help make supposedly "smart" TVs actually capable. I continue to be baffled that TVs don't have any real computing power yet. We have to keep buying extra things for them to operate beyond the few specialized Netflix or Hulu apps they provide.

PS4, Durango, and the Wii U weren't ever a threat to this little guy. The real threat to the OUYA are the impending Steam Boxes. They both will likely cater to similar crowds despite being relatively different products, having different game libraries, and providing different distribution channels.

Normal people don't buy hardware because other people have hacked it, and made it play old pirated DOS games, or whatever. Ouya doesn't have the established digital distribution of Steam, and there are only a few Android games that ever supported the Xperia Play, and hence have gamepad support -- let alone were designed with a gamepad in mind, which is the real issue.

I don't hate the Ouya, personally -- I just see its business model as a failure. Its a smartphone/tablet with a video-out port. I guess that's cool, except that I have a smartphone/tablet, and everyone else who would consider buying an Ouya probably also does. After seeing phone games on the big screen... well I don't actually think that's going to help them too much. Especially if said games are primarily designed for touch interfaces, and the Ouya gamepad doesn't cut it.

Playing mobile games on my tv sounds awesome.
Oh wait, no it doesn't.

Well, the big boys are here now. Namely PlayStation 4. Sure, Ouya, Wii U and that weird Nvidia thing can play around, but when PS4 hits, it's time for the kids to leave.

Fanboyism, yay!
