The future of Ouya, according to Kellee Santiago

Gamasutra: "The Ouya enters at a time of major market upheaval and transition. The first of an oncoming wave of microconsoles, the Ouya will live or die by the strength of its developer support -- just like any other game console.

Enter Kellee Santiago, one of the first high-profile figures attached to the Ouya. An alumna of the University of Southern California's interactive media program, Santiago was a co-founder and key player within thatgamecompany who helped bring its Sony-exclusive titles flOw, Flower and Journey to market. After leaving thatgamecompany in 2012, Santiago came aboard Ouya's team as head of developer relations this past February, and has been working since to promote the platform to devs large and small."

Santiago should just cut her losses at her new job with Ouya, and get back with Jenova Chen so they can whip up some more awesome games. I used to follow them when they were in college, back when they submitted games like "Cloud" to independant game festivals. I read their dissertations backk before I was even on college reading level. Now I seen how they grew and now that i'm in college myself, they were my biggest influences to go to school for gaming. But it breaks my heart to see those two split up. The stress of game development can push friends/co-workers apart I guess.

I have an OUYA. Haven't really played it a lot. Enjoyed one or two games, but it's pretty meh.

I still might get an Ouya just to add to my console collection. It'll be very rare soon.

The problem I saw with the OUYA is that it took them a long time to release it, and by the time they did release it the OUYA was an outdated android tablet, and that's what OUYA is; a tablet without screen or touch input. It was a great idea but they took too long to release it and thus became irrelevant when it did. Also android games aren't exactly good. I would consider buying one for the emulators and if they get a KotOR port like the one on the iPad.
