Unlike the Xbox One, Ouya Puts Players First

Though not as powerful, the $100 console addresses a lot of peoples' complaints over the Xbox One. Why not give the modest Android box a try? (Ouya, Tech, Xbox One)

LOOOL @ the pic, anyway, I do not think that Android gaming is being taken that seriously, which is why we still have the steam box or PS4 or WiiU

I have a felling that Ouya is NOT a viable alternative for Xbox users. I personally never even paid any attention to what it offers. Anyone that was convinced to hate the X1 is surely not going to look at Ouya... unless they hate Sony and Nintendo.

But android has a huge uphill battle, and a lot to prove, if they want convince core gamers to even consider devices using their OS as an alterative. Android hasn't shown itself to bring anything new our creative to the gaming space. So just having a system for $100 is not enough to grab gamers attention. Android fanboys aren't necessarily gamers (mostly people how like doing stuff with their phones. Anything with their phones).

The writer is basically saying that Ouya is digital. Even though X1 has better ways for you to share digital games, Ouya is cheaper, so go with that. That is not going to work.

Ya the Ouyas games at best will be comparable to the PS2. Its a good alternative if you don't make that much $ and can't afford a ps3/xbox 360 or the new consoles.

Lot's of hate for the Xbone, most of it deserved, but to throw Ouya on it as well means very little, lol.

3DS on the other hand. :P

Ouya FTW! It doesn't make a threat to PS4 or even WiiU, this is a good console for developing countries, with cheap games. Just don't bully it, it's on your side.

How's the Ouya doing anyway? I have an image of the people who have bought one, and only 1 person I know fits it.

My tablet can do almost everything the Ouya can do and more. I can even buy Bluetooth controllers for it that's half the price a controller for the Ouya is.

Putting my personal feeling on the Ouya aside, it's simply not going to appeal to those who decide to not get the Xbox One because of price or the numerous issues. I'm not going to buy a bicycle if I can't afford a new car.
