The OUYA Misconceptions: Setting the record straight on the OUYA

Over the past few weeks, many publications, twitter users, and competitors of OUYA have been spreading a plethora of misinformation concerning the new game console. This editorial is meant to clear up those misconceptions, and help draw a clearer picture for those gamers who are considering purchasing an OUYA, as well as those writers, tweeters, and competitors who have not investigated far enough before broadcasting distorted facts. (Android, Ouya, Tech)

"OUYA never said that Kickstarter backers would be getting their consoles at the end of March. That's something that was simply perceived unfairly by the media and the backers."

Calling bullshit on this one. The backer email specifically said consoles would ship to backers on March 28th. The way things are going those who came late to the party will receive their Ouya at the same time as the retail crowd. Which nullifies the purpose of being a backer.

I'm also calling bullshit on the line that says "Good games take time to developer."

And lag issues are unacceptable no matter who is to blame.

"OUYA is NOT a console that plays smartphone games on a TV."

Yes it is. Many of its launch titles are already available on iOS.
