Press F in the comments to pay respects to the Ouya.
F Ouya, I hardly knew ye
Ouya died before release, who the hell thought it would be a good idea to make a console that plays mobile games when you can just play em on your mobile? This has to be the worst business idea ever.
I know this is totally going to blow your mind, but in 2012 the Ouya was significantly more powerful than the smartphones and was a great streaming device to your tv for a cheap price. And it was supposed to attract devs to program Ouya-specific titles.
It's still alive?
I was thinking the same thing.
Indeed. Heck, was it even alive to begin with? Its launch was a disaster and I haven't so much as heard any talk about it since then. Oh well, the Stadia will join it soon.
Only an idiot would have invested in this. Ouya was DOA.
Hindsight is always 20/20.
Plenty of us said it would flop, it wasn't hard to predict.
This was a flop from the getgo. Any person with any sort of technical background could look at the ouya form factor and know it’s ambitious goals were not remotely aligned. Maybe in the far future we’d be able to fit something that powerful in those small dimensions
To be fair, the ouya had some decent games on it. You can also put emulators on it.
It doesnt deserve an F. It was a shit product from conception to execution. I'm surprised it even lasted this long.
does the F stand for Fail? I knew this thing would be a dud even before it launched.
The F is to pay respects. It’s a Call of Duty meme.. (google it)
I'm surprised it was still going...
Even running emus on that got old and sucky. Their controller totally reminds me of their team too.
when was it ever alive
I thought it died years ago
That thing was dead before it entered the market Stadia can expect this to I can see it happening.
The freaking thing hasn't died yet? Wow
