Ouya: A charming but flawed $100 video game console

Today, video game systems are dominated by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. They make big, expensive, state-of-the-art gaming consoles that attract the world's top developers and the most intricate games.

But the fastest-growing video game segment has no use for all those bells and whistles. Smartphone and tablet games are cruder and simpler but are often as fun and innovative, and immensely popular with the average consumer who would never dream of shelling out $500 for a video game console. (Android, Mobile, Ouya, Tech)

Got one, i dont use it as a console at all.
Streaming tv is what its great for.

I was thinking about getting only because I heard about the fact that it can do some emulation and that would be nice.

That said I kinda don't want to buy it just for it to not be supported or fade away as a fad. So I think I will wait about a year and if it's still around and still kicking I will pick one up for sure. Hell if I have a decent bit of extra cash before then I won't mind getting it early. 100$ isn't really all that much in the grand scheme of things.

I was using it at my friends house earlier this week. He just got it. Its actually pretty fun. I can see it being a forced to be reckoned with if combined with the Oculus Rift.

I want one just for console and arcade emulation on my TV.

Would be cool, if my $240 tablet already didn't do this, and is capable of being on the go.

I also like how I can just download .apk from my pc and install things with ease when they aren't on the market.

True but your tablet doesn't come with a full sized controller and not everyone has a tablet. But I get wut u say.

No, it doesn't come with one you are right.

However, I did have a ps3, and a extra controller which I kept when I sold it.

Which is now synced to my PC and my tablets. *all 3 actually*, And I'll usually put the controller in my bag before I go to work or out for the day.
