Ouya has just announced a revised version of their Android-powered gaming system. This new version will retail for $129, which makes it $30 more expensive than the current version, which will remain on store shelves.
Sounds like a lot of money for very little.
Well at this point I just don't see the use for this. The less expensive version of this console isn't working so why release a more expensive version? I just don't get it.
What's the point?
If nothing else, it make a really great retro console emulator. That's the only reason I plan on buying one eventually (used).
ouya has the worst and cheapest feeling controller ever
After seeing Sony release the Vita 2000 in the UK for more than the 1000 was selling for, they decided to follow suit. If no one was buying it at the current price, release a more expensive version and watch the customers come flooding in.
How bout the processor?, have they already replaced the obsolete Tegra 3 already with the one designed by Qualcomm?
T3 obsolete? They'll probably just replace it with T4. Now get back to work; Qualcomm employees shouldn't be on n4g during work hours.
New Ouya how fun!
Because the original was such a RUNAWAY success!
Poor Poor Ouya.
Well if the controller actually works then I might get one( I can't justify 259.99 for a madcatz mojo or even a nivida shield for around 300). But why not add tegra 4 chip for around $150 then with a actually controller with google play store support it would sell. The company can make it with google play store support & doing what apple does release a new console every year. But with new tech every year just go with the newest tegra chip.
I think when android systems catch up too say 360 graphics then devs will take them seriously and then we will see actually console quality games.
By then, consoles, PC and even handhelds will be so far ahead it'll be a pointless venture.
I agree with you & disagree(have you heard of the nivida K1 supposed too be equal too 360 & ps3).
