Hardcore Gamer: For the first year of its life, the OUYA was able to claim that every game on the platform was free to try. Now, with over 700 games available via that model, the first pay-only games have hit the platform.
God watching Ouya is like watching a train crash in slow motion.
Yeah...any extra popcorn?
... and because it's an open source platform, no one will actually be paying for those games, either.
Eh, huh? Just because the platform is open source doesn't mean everything running on that platform is open source as well. Android is open source, is everything on Android open source now, too?
don't be naive, hackers will find a way (if they haven't already).
This has nothing to do with being naive. You are misinformed on what open source means. Your opinion on the subject was most likely formed after reading a few things about heartbleed. Heartbleed was bad, very bad, but open source is still king when it comes to security, there is not even a comparison. Last I checked the most secure OS on the planet is open source. Open source applications work the exact same way closed source apps do, there is literally no difference. The only difference is that everyone can look at the blueprints in open source, not in closed source. Heartbleed was patched with lightning quick response time, check out how Microsoft is dragging their feet with various vulnerabilities in Windows and they cooperate with the NSA, alerting them on newly discovered exploits 1 month before they patch them. I prefer open source any day.
I almost bought one of these when they launched. Looking back I honestly don't know what I was thinking. Dodged that bullet. Haha.
It's actually a good media box. Or if you like to play retro games on emulators.
I have consoles and a PC for that though....
Ouya ditched gaming anyway
Or was it the other way around?
how does f2p work on a console with a tiny install base?
Well it was technically "free to try" before
My first post :) I bought an OUYA when it launched, mainly as a curiosity and also because if it bombed majorly I may have a priceless item on my hands when I'm old(er) and grey(er). Needless to say, I blew it, it's utter tosh except for Emulators and errrr, no thats about it. Anyhoo, back to my PS4 then.
I wanted an Ouya when I first read about it and was fortunate enough to actually win one via a Twitter contest. Happy I did as there are some really enjoyable games on the system and they're still gaining more. Count me an Ouya supporter. :)
