TotalOUYA has added ten new screenshots for the OUYA version of Final Fantasy III, in addition to new screenshots for every single OUYA game available right now, all browsable from the front page of the site.
I really hope those negative reviews from people who got the system early are just blowing smoke. I want it to be good, I want to buy one, but now I'm honestly a little hesitant...
for $99 its a decent device for something that can stream videos(netflix,hulu,hbogo or etc) play games and run countless emulators. -- FF3 on Ouya compared to other android devices really isnt improvement. Graphically it looks the same. Then again I wasn't expecting SE to give the Ouya a improve version anyway.
It's early days for OUYA. it started from Kickstarter and without loads of cash to get big AAA games, it's relying on the enthusiasm of indie developers. It'll remain niche for a while yet, but eventually it will snowball. And, let's face it, it's a cheap entry price at just $99.
With intent to put out a new model every year so as to keep up with technical trends. In other words, games offered on model 2 wont be playable on model 1.
It'll be just like iPhone/iPad in the sense that in real terms, most users won't need to upgrade each year. probably every other year. I get some people don't like this, but I'm fine with it. I'll just keep playing, until eventually the machine I own starts to chug a bit with the latest releases. Then I'll pay $99 for an upgrade. Not to sound snobby or anything, but $99 is nothing.
But it's omly $99...$40 more than current gen games. Not that outrageous!
Depends on how often they switch out the chipset. Ouya initially ships with a Tegra 3. But mobile chipsets are evolving at such an incredible pace right now that by the time the next model Ouya ships backwards compatibility may be an issue.
I think OUYA plans to go from Tegra 3, to 4, to 5 etc, and this will be on a yearly cycle at most. Backwards compatibility will not be an issue. the only issue will be when you start to play new and advanced games on old hardware. At that point, you upgrade. easy. then, years down the line, your console experience has managed to keep up with advances in tech, but you've not had to do the usual console thing of buying something completely new that needs all new games.
I don't think backwards compatibility will be an issue. Forward compatibility might be though. Its a nice business model really. A great way to stop back into time into the PSX/PS2 era of games. :)
by the third year you would have gone through three ouyas for $300 just to keep up with the trends. meanwhile you could have spent that money on a ps3 or 360 both of which have a vastly superior library, better graphics, better controllers, and a proven track record. ouya hasn't delivered on ONE of the devs/titles that were requested in their survey. not one. until they can prove that their efforts have solidified reliable dev support, you will not find me wading through the sea of bad imitations that I can already wade through on Google Play. Shadow Gun? Like a poor man's Gears. Mass Effect Infiltrator? Read the reviews. Canabalt? Jesus... Ouya is messing up their launch w titles no one would want to poke with a stick.
Wow, who's defending this thing? Check out this gem from the Verge review... "Worst of all, it makes buying things impossibly easy — you enter a credit card when first setting up your Ouya, and there are often no confirmation boxes or checks against you spending thousands of dollars. Oh, you hit Upgrade because it's right next to Play and the controller's laggy? Perfect. Thanks for your money." Edit: also you cannot change your credit card information once it is on the system. What??? Edit 2: purchases are not handled by the OS but by individual applications. meaning if someone wanted to make a malicious app, then they could have it run silently in the background... This is very BAD. Purchases need to be regulated and apps need to be screened. I'm not letting my credit card NEAR that thing.
It's only 99$,and it's worth, if only for the media capabilities and emulators. For guys that are complaining, you're just to cheap. Skip the next CoD or BF game with DLC and you'll have the money for OUYA.
I bought into it for a number of factors, but for a dedicated box that can run Netflix, HBOGO, Hulu, Flixster, etc., $99 is a steal for output to a TV.
I dunno about you guys but the only reason im getting an Ouya is for a small emulation box. Its very low power, small and one of the N64 emulators has been updated for the Ouya I believe. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
It looks exactly like the one on ios/android/ds. You know why? It is the same game thats why! What a pointless post.
