Ahhh gotta love those Kickstarter funded projects that ends with a big fuck you to the backers and developers. Seriously, this piece of crap was doomed since its conception.

Too overhyped. An OS where you can play just Mobile Games will never have success as a console.

At least the founders are rich now.

The only Android console I can see being successful is the nVidia 4K Android TV one.

I didn't know it came out. Poor marketing and tablet games equal doom.

It seriously lacked alot of things. I believe it was doomed from the start to have a pop and then go downhill.

Android consoles don't even aim to be on par with Nintendo's WiiU so they will not be relevant to gamers. Sure some cheap easy access to game development is nice, but its hard to lure anyone when Unreal 4, Source 2, Cryengine 3 all have free highly scaleable engines on the net.

I think if one tried to enter the console market head to head with serious effort it could do something, but most of the time companies think cheap quick cash in is the only way to get it going so they never go beyond that.

There was literally no marketing for this other than the Kickstarter. After it was released I never saw a single tv or print ad. If I hadn't been a backer, I prpbably wouldn't have known about it either.

I did see some sitting on shelves at Best Buy at some point. So they carried it for a while.

I sold mine a few months ago, amazingly, for almost what I paid for it. Feel bad for that person.

That's too bad, I'll keep my OUYA anyways. I use it all the time for XBMC and playing emulators.

No one cares though. The fact this is even being reported on is surprising.
