Ouya: the biggest console launch library

Original-Gamer.com: Tomorrow, Ouyas get shipped out to Kickstarter backers and the newest console will have the largest launch library ever. While the public won't be able to purchase the system at retail until June unless you want to shell out $600 on eBay, Kickstarter backers for the Ouya have the potential of purchasing 586 games.

"Ouya: the biggest console launch library"

99% shovelware. It's also running lagdroid which sucks as a gaming console OS.

We'll have to see on that. Having a set hardware spec and OS will at least make it easy for developers to ensure games work well on that system.

But yeah I don't anticipate using mine for anything but emulators and netflix.

Emulators, netflix, hulu, hbogo(thx to my cousin and her hbo subscription :D) for me.

If i can download the games I already purchase on Google play I could see myself play Shadowgun,FF3, GTA3 and Vice City.

Why is android bad? The OS doesn't lag, the device does. I'm running 4.2 on my Nexus and it never lags at all.

Never had any issues with my 4.2 jelly bean nexus 7 unless you try to run a bunch of stuff. The ouya has an upclocked version of the nexus 7 chipset.

Good luck Ouya. You are going to need that and more. I don't know that their is a market to put cellphone games on a TV screen, but I could be wrong.

Axe991132d ago

Not sure about this claim - the PS2 could play PSOne games - that makes for a launch library almost twice the size of Ouya ;). Launch PS3 could play most PS2 and PSOne...

586 games is most likely the paid android games thats already available on the google play store.

Seeing as you are including emulation into the process("the PS2 could play PSOne games","Launch PS3 could play most PS2 and PSOne").

Ouya can emulate/play systems early as the NES(possibly systems even earlier)and latest as the psp&DS(excluding xbox,ps2,gamecube). Thats a crapload of games altogether if you were to include emulation/games that it can run, into the process.

Well the Dolphin emulator(the emulator that runs Wii and Gamecube games) also suppose to be coming to AndroidOS but the only thing that is holding it back the current hardware. Hopefully the Snapdragon 800 processor and Tegra 4 will help bring hold the gold.

At the end of the day regardless the Ouya can do, it still a niche product. Not to mention its will launch on dated hardware. That company will have its work cut out for them in the coming days.

That would mean the Ouya would have to come LOADED with those emulators, like the PS2 and PS3 were. No extra software or hardware was needed out of the box for these systems: you popped in the games from last gen, and you played them.

If those emulators aren't present when you take the thing out of the store, your idea holds no weight.

Quantity does not trump quality.
