First Ouya Reviews hit the Internet

Initial reaction is ... not glowing (Android, Ouya)

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.

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. :]
CraigyScotsman  +   849d ago
Or, you know, a PC. Which is an open platform.
Snookies12  +   849d 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.
Snookies12  +   849d ago
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.
NastyLeftHook0  +   849d ago
wow, its best exclusive is final fantasy 11? thats wrong on so many levels.
ChickeyCantor  +   849d ago | Funny
Roman numerals, do you understand them?

III =/= 11.

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

LMAO!!!!!

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

bubble up

lol
RyuStrife  +   849d ago
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 Plus, tegra 3 is so outdated.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.
Qrphe  +   849d 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.
neogeo  +   849d ago
Ouya for life!!!!!!!
sitharrefus  +   849d ago
you 12?

more like "Ouno" I guess. To think the kickstarter was $8.5 mio
kwyjibo  +   849d ago
The thing is $99. As a streaming/media box, it's fine - games are a bonus. It'll see annual updates, give it two years, maybe even one - and mobile chips will have caught up with this generation.

Sure we'll have next-gen by then, but Nintendo have proved you can be a generation behind on the graphics and still do well.
dcbronco  +   849d ago
You might be right about the timing. It might have needed a year or two for a better chip. AMD is moving ahead with their APUs and the Tegra 5 is expected to be much better. Hope they haven't ruined their rep.

"Initial reaction is ... not glowing"

not surprised at all.

it's a piece of garbage that unfortunately sucked a lot of people in with it's utopian "open source" nonsense... which is nice, and all, but peple will still do malicious things with the device. once that happens (pretty much as soon as thing the launches), support from devs will drop like a tonne of bricks, and it'll be nothing more than a $99 NES emulator.
Animal Mutha 76  +   849d ago
I saw a YouTube vid of Ouya running XBMC and thought it was very impressive for such a small unit. I could see this being a media pc and running emulators etc.
AllroundGamer  +   848d ago
a portable emulator cube, nice for 99$, but you will also need some 16GB USBstick at least for all the roms, since Ouya only has 8gb of rom.
