The Ouya's Role in the Console War: Consumer Trust Above All

The Ouya has sold out on Amazon and is proving itself as a next generation console. Most gamers pass it off as an interesting device, and dismiss it as nowhere near a contender in the console war. You are probably doing the same as you read this. This is so because it supposedly lacks a few key ingredients: power, size, and exclusives.

These are three elements of a console that have been absolutely essential in the past console wars. However, the past is the past. This is a next-gen console war. This new generation, as we've been seeing from the dramatic E3 conferences and Microsoft's repeal of DRM policy, is about something else. The Ouya might not have those key ingredients, but how necessary are they this time around? (Industry, Next-Gen, Ouya)

The only time I ever remember that Ouya exists is when I see an article about it; otherwise, it just gets lost in the noise.
