CVG- Review: Is Ouya the 'droid you're looking for?

CVG:The lack of a visible download queue, the zero visibility of prices in store, the horrible controller lag, the weak Wi-Fi receiver, the blocks on fully expanding the storage, even basic stuff like the option to change the display settings... all of these things need to be remedied before the Ouya can truly be considered a viable alternative.

I don't think I'll ever like android-based gaming..

What the hell does that even mean? It's just software.

It has more to do with the lack of any major blockbuster games that I would find on playstation, xbox, or wii.

But I would imagine it's great for those wanting to explore indie games.

Android games are probably great on smartphones, but I just don't see me shelling out 100 bucks for ouya when it doesn't really have the sort of games that I would want to play on the tv with a console and controller.

The whole point of the ouya is to move up from the simple games while keeping them ( it's in the end on an Android system ).

You are under the implication that just because they are android games they can't really go beyond angry birds or whatever. (you said : I don't think I'll ever like android-based gaming.. )
Android is an operating system which provides an easy to work with development environment. Games can make use of the hardware acceleration, meaning that it's up to the hardware where the limits are and up to the developers how they make use of it.

I'm not trying to defend ouya here, but their whole point is to give developers a simple environment to work in hoping that they will create more quality games.

Obviously it won't be anything PS4/xboxone will offer. That's not the point.
