Gamespresso- Indie console OUYA could be looking for a buyer only one year after its release, with 919 games currently on the console.
Well it might be the right business move here; it really seems that (at least under the current management) that the OUYA has hit a plateau, and those HDMI android sticks look awfully tempting
I'd use the name for future marketing and ditch everthing else.
what is an OUYA???
One year after "it is release". How do people identify as a journalist when they can't even get fundamental grammar correct?
I never did like OUYA, so I don't care. I do hope Microsoft learns from this, always online consoles never last.
If only people were more aware of a program called xbmc they'd be buying the ouya up and canceling their cable service. The ouya is great for all the movies/TV/old school gaming you could want, all for a one time fee on 100$
Plenty knows about XBMC , and those still wouldnt get the Ouya , when it works everywhere . Besides there are devices like the Roku . Anyway that the main interest of a supposed console like the ouya would be usage as a mere media box , when there are cheaper and better ones out there , is not good at all
The only thing a media box needs is xbmc with the mashup plugin..roku doesn't even xbmc so it fails. There is absolutely no 100$ or less media box that has what the ouya has. And I also mentioned old school games...SNES through the Dreamcast. Cmon...name something that beats the ouya at 100 or less in media capabilities and old school gaming.
I never said ROku got XMBC , it got other solutoons that people like or not . I dont like it , nor the Amazon Fire TV and a few others , but it's still more popular . As for the gaming part ... let's not oversell the thing please . Reicast is far from being done being worked upon . I'd agree that so far it woks fine up till the n64 , wich isnt bad at all . "Cmon...name something that beats the ouya at 100 or less in media capabilities and old school gaming. " A cheap pc , or mini pc . I know it's not glamorrous and sexy looking like a tiny box .. but you can tidy up quit a bit with a mini box and old cheap parts . And at 150-200 , you've got something that will go beyond the DC , and do so much more , with direct access to pc games . I know i'm being harsh , i'm not claiming the OUYA isnt good . But awareness is hardly the sole issue for its lukewarm success . People see a console without a worthwhile gaming ecosystem and there are other solution for emu or streaming that satisfy them . So they ignore it , even if it's cheap
I like my ouya, great for streaming and emulation
I played like 2 Ouya games for like 5 minutes. Meh. I've used it for nothing but Roms and mostly XBMC.
Well bring out emulators for every old school console. Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, 3DO, Jaguar ect... Then it's a deffinet buy.
How much would emulators cost and can you put roms into it from another source? I mean I bet it doesn't use zsnes so the rom format wont work?
I thought they meant they were still looking for a buyer for the console ... not the whole company, lol
