Miguel Oliveira also believes the console encourages "multiplayer couch gaming" experiences.
So what is the over and under on the life expectancy of the Ouya now that Amazon is filling the same space as they were trying to capture? 1yr? 2yrs?
The internet/gamers are putting waaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy too much emphasis on the Amazon device being a "gaming" console. Amazon themselves aren't even marketing it as a gaming anything. They are advertising it as a kindle fire/roku type device. The only thing any of the commercials talk about is using it to stream Tv shows and movies, it's also not an open source device
But they have bought a full fledged game studio in Double Helix and hired some top talent like Clint Hocking to ....make games so I think its safe to assume they are putting some chips into that basket. On the flip side...Ouya basically still just an Android Store Front.
It will have games as a source of revenue, but not as the focus. They won't be going in as a member for the "Current Game Generation", rather one of the hundreds of smart/multi-media devices that attempts to hold all your entertainment. Gaming is very popular, whether you're a core, casual, or mobile gamer. To not tap into everything is short-sighted
It is not the OUYA that deliver human experiences, it is the devs. The experience could easily be in the PC, a tablet or the PS4.
yeah, was about to post that. wth is he talking about? as if the ouya creators have been out scouting for emotion based games specifically
Digital will never win!!!
What's an OUYA?
It's what the Japanese kool-aid guy shouts when he crashes through your wall.
For a few extra dollars you can get a 2DS, Ouya is something you rarely hear about anymore lol.
OUYA messed with so many backers when they finally got the product...these ppl l feel are just one rung above scammers. I've had two friends at college that were a part of the original backers get a normal ouya and not the specialized one promised to them....1 year after it came out..
honestly if your that broke u have to settle for an ouya than you shouldn't be gaming at the moment
Doesn't OUYA only have old Android games and emulators you have to pay for?
And the ouya is comparatively too expensive for what it truly is , a glorified media center and box . Just get a roku already or any cheap media box . The gaming part is just mediocre
PS3 and XBOX 360 both sell for pretty cheap today, and are of much better value than a Ouya. (+ , used games are a plenty, for cheap!)(++ New games are still being made for those !) Stop trying to make Ouya a thing.
I hear what he's saying, but it's not always the console that makes or breaks its success its the developers. I support PlayStation for the long and rich and diverse sets of devs using the Platform. From Rockstar to Team Meat. The size isn't important so much as the passion for the project.
Proud representative of the alien race right here.
100$ is too expensive for a lot of people who already have a smartphone/pc/console.
The price of this device puts it in no mans land for just a bit more you can now get a wii u, towards end of year that price difference might even be smaller.
The only good Ouya exclusive is now on the PS4 and Steam.
yes! I love that game. Best local multiplayer fun I've had in years.
Yeah. It's a great game!
Haha nice try
Ouya doesn't deliver anything at all. It's a failed "console" and all of its games could EASILY be done far better on other platforms.
best thing about buying the ps4 was i could pay a little a week on the console and games. was easier to pay it off instead of buying it at one time.
This gen of consoles are actually much much cheaper than when the PS3 and XBox360 ( from AU$600 upwards to AU$900 ) first came out.
Retron 5 for $100 launching soon. Ouya officially redundant.
