GI - Console maker says it hasn't sent out review units yet, experience will be fine-tuned for June launch. (Android, Ouya, Tech)

They still need time to send in there polished turd version for reviews.

Even the preview period will be used as a test... Meaning even if that review is bad don't worry we promise the finale will be good...

How much you wanna bet they produced this for way below their take from the suckers at kickstarter, and pocketed the rest?
Ron_Danger  +   380d ago
Considering all the tech already existed since its just an android device that connect to a tv, they didn't even have to do much R&D.

For all the people that fell for this kick starter: you already have a smart phone, you already have a pc, why do you need this?

Speaking of Cell Phone, did you know they're making yearly iterations of this with updated specs? Why get the launch version?

So you screw over the people that funded you in the first place by making and rushing crappy hardware for them, only to say it'll be fixed for when it really matters?

I was fine backing an xbmc/emulation unit for 100 dollars even though my computer is hooked up to my tv. The thing is also pretty tiny, but the controller is a bit weak, which is why I'll opt for using my dualshocks 3 controllers :P basically this will be my new modded xbox.

Also, people need to think outside of the box and see the Ouya as a new development platform. Of course many of the early titles will be mobile ports, but it's kind of like how the Wii-U is using mostly PS3 and xbox 360/pc games for the large portion of their initial titles...

I have a dev device and have been on the forums and testing this thing from day one, including testing their sdk. Some of the games I've tried have been pretty fun and definitely ported and built for controller and tv in mind. Definitely some promise here, but I don't think it'll be actively competing with the big 3 consoles, more like catering to hackers/casual gamers. They need to work on their credit card purchasing system, it's broken for developer payment options.
