Wasn't this suppose to make the current consoles obsolete? On to the next future of gaming I guess....

No, it was never intended for that purpose. Its intent was to "disrupt" the way consoles are made by creating an open platform for both developers and gamers. Essentially allowing anyone to develop or mod for it, without the huge barrier of having to pay a company to get your games on their system.

MariaHelFutura1119d ago

Just off memory, I thought I remembered some article stating such. Maybe, it was some other iOS type device that will bring the demise of console gaming. :]

CraigyScotsman1119d ago

Or, you know, a PC. Which is an open platform.

Snookies121118d ago

@CraigyScotsman - I have a gaming PC, but it would be nice to have the Ouya for portability when playing games, emulators, etc., very small... Very easy to move around.

"Very easy to move around."

So is a hacked/custom firmware loaded PSP.

And you have the chance to purchase and play tons of great PSP games like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker or Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. The only thing you'll be missing (emulation wise) will be N64 games. That's it.

No worries, some people might have been saying that about it, but that's honestly not what it was going for. Regardless, I'm hoping these issues can be somewhat fixed (whatever they are, I haven't actually read anyone's reviews on it yet.) It looks interesting for several reasons to me, but I'm a little hesitant on buying it honestly.

These review are near irrelevant, seeing how the console hasn't even had an official release, which is in June. These reviews are based off of backer units, which the Ouya team as been clear are final hardware, but unfinished software.

wow, its best exclusive is final fantasy 11? thats wrong on so many levels.

ChickeyCantor1119d ago

Roman numerals, do you understand them?

III =/= 11.

The point is they are getting support. Which is a good sign.

Funniest thing I've ever seen on this site.......

bubble up

It's not even exclusive. It has been on android for awhile now. Plus, tegra 3 is so outdated. I guess we'll be seeing yearly revisions of the ouya, if not then maybe every couple of years.

Qrphe1119d ago

Although it did get a lot of funding for a kickstarter, it wasn't really enough to assure a huge market-shaking success. It's a niche device.

dafegamer1119d ago

more like "Ouno" I guess. To think the kickstarter was $8.5 mio
