Console $99 w/ controller.

Controller sold seperately = $50

Who would buy such a cheap console? Especially when we already have out smartphones/tablets for these small games. Not worth it.

I honestly believe ouya will no more than serve and excite a small, niche community.
It won't even come close to threatening the big 3 current console makers.

Unless they do the smart thing and fight tooth and nail to land contracts to get their system built in to name brand TVS.

If enough developers support it I can see Andriod consoles cut into Nintendo's market share.

This little console is going to do very well but will mostly compete with mobile gaming rather than the PS4 and xbox.
