This thing is going to bomb something fierce.
I can't for the life of me wrap my head around why they would come out of nowhere, as a no-name company and try to shoehorn into the console space right as Sony & MS are about to release the beasts all over the industry.

Investors are going to lose all their money and this company will go bankrupt within a year.If anything they should of released this thing 3-4 years ago to try and steal some thunder when PS360 fatigue was at it's peak.

RIP Ouya 2013-2013

While I agree that they shouldn't release it around the time of the PS3 and 720..
It is fairly different than what those two consoles are or what they are doing.
Besides, I imagine that it will be drastically cheaper than either console.
No Ps3 or 720, but I would wager that the Ouya will get it's fair share of sales.

The $99 price point will likely garnish both a fair amount of interest and skepticism.

I'm still up in the air on this. Serious question: Does it do Netflix?
