Why 10,000 Developers for the Ouya Isn’t That Impressive

VG Republic Writes: The Ouya has seemingly hit the ground running ever since it hit the market with its Kickstarter campaign that ended with overwhelming success. A report hitting the wire the other day in regards to the fact that the Ouya has an abundant base of support from developers flocking to the open console format to bring forth their titles. 10,000 is the number to be exact, as reported by gameindusty.biz, of the supposed developers that are on the verge of breaking the flood gates of content open with a slew of games, but is the number of developers tainted to a certain degree? Sure the overall number looks impressive as it would for any new console, but the quality of developers is what must be analyzed and to this point there isn’t a large portion of that number that represents recognizable companies that you would associate with larger consoles. Nor do they bring forth the type of quality that can’t be already found on your cellular device, which solidifies the fact that the number is solid but it’s not quantity it’s quality that speaks the loudest. (Android, Dev, Ouya, Tech)

ouya came too late, if it released before ps3 360 and wii, it could have gotten decent support perhaps

The technology that the OUYA is based on did not exist in 2005.

I'm so on the fence with Ouya... I want one for convenience, but I doubt I'll be an early adopter for it.

It's like, what if Nintendo during the original NES days said: "We have THESE many developers for us!" and then we have AVGN on the blue cornerrrrr!

If you get what I mean.

Crappy games.

That suck ass.

Quantity over quality.

The problem with this platform is that it is a market for indie games exclusively when PC already does this and more without the fees of Playstation Arcade or XBLA.

It is basically a niche that is already covered but I suppose it has a cheap cost but then again so do phones and they are portable.

yh i mean a choice between this and a ps3 i think few people would go for the ouya if it was priced at 60 and replaced my wd tv live stream box too i would buy it

What they should have done was promote it as a media machine as well as a gaming machine. If they added a proper media remote with it people would be more open to it. I would get one for a media machine it runs on Android which is a great OS. There are some great media apps for Android and you cannot expect people to use the gaming remote all the time. That was a big mistake.
