The OUYA has had a tough job the last couple months. Maybe it wasn't the shining knight to take down the Big Three console-makers after all.
Still, Ouya was never relevant:)
It was relevant, back in 2012 when the kickstarter started but when consoles were announced and revealed, it lost what relevancy it had. The X1's and PS4's ability to allow indie developers to self publish killed on Ouya strongest points(other than emulation). When the PS4 and X1 are release I don't see anyone giving Ouya any attention. Most of the Indie developers will move to next gen platforms because there would be a better chance than 37%(percentage of Ouya owners that actually paid for games) of people playing their game. Right now the only reason they're getting any attention is because the fiasco with the Free games fund that caused quite a few kickstarters to get canned. Ouya Inc won't be around for long;their days are numbered.
Ouya died the moment that Sony announced the $99 VTV. There is no way for Ouya to compete with a console with such an extensive category of games and media options at the same price point.
dude it better keep selling. otherwise it means xbox one is not even selling near to Ouya, isnt this bad for xbox one?
I could never understand all the talk about it when it was revealed. It was always so obvious that it would fail... The same thing with Kinect or PlayStation Home. There are somethings that I just don't understand why people get so excited about and those things usually fail.
Whats an ouya? lol
It has a touchpad controller too? Interesting....
There was no need for it when PCs and smart phones could play all the games they were trying to make for it. All in all an Ouya was about as useful as a hair dryer with skype.
Not so sure I would want one if it was for free.
So, you are saying that you wouldn't take one for FREE?? Seriously, Dude? A little bit of hyperbole there?
I'd only want one for free if there was someone interested in buying from me so I could get rid of it ASAP. But I don't know any living soul who wants one...
It still has relevance, it just needs marketing in the right way.. So far there is a huge untapped market for an android based game system that plugs into your TV.. Once there is an "android standard" in terms of hardware it will pave way for developers to make great games. Its not competing with Ps4, xbox.. its closest competitor is probably Vita TV
Why does this even exist? :/
OU YA! I forgot this thing existed. XD
I new by the time it arrived that it would be alnist useless. I've only used it for XBMC streaming. And I also plan on using it for Emulator gaming, but beyond that, I never thought it had much appeal. And now with Vita TV, the Oyua will just become another console that gets past into oblivion.
I thought about getting one for about five minutes. Then I realized that I have a good android phone, a netbook which can run ps3 media server and transcode videos in the odd event that ps3 doesn't have a specific codec, and a couple of dualshock controllers which can work with both emulation and games on both my netbook and android phone. Ouya has, literally, no value for me.
Sorry but with a name like that, they actually thought that it was going to be relevant lol
No. We don't need android consoles. We need PS4.
