Can using Ouya as HTPC?

Yes.

XBMC will run on Ouya, and if XBMC's performance on the Nexus 7 is any indication, Ouya should be able to play any 1080P video you throw at it.

Re: Ouya: $99 hackable Android game console
Might have to pick one of these up. As for the why if you have a tablet or smartphone? I'd gladly pay $100 to not have to dink around opening up my av cabinet to plug in my phone or tablet to my surround receiver. From what I have read it does not have an Ethernet port which is disappointing since it is a fixed device, but I guess it is cheap. Would be better for streaming...but really a htpc trumps everything for playing video and I have one, so mostly just a game console for the kids for me.

The Wikipedia states that it does have an Ethernet port. I'm hoping it does, because wireless N isn't always fast enough for high bit rate 1080p videos.

Can't wait for this console. It has so much potential to be such a cool and cheap media option for TV as well especially with XBMC.

Pretty excited for this. I am not a huge fan of Android on my phone but would love a little something like this for a project device!

Re: Ouya: $99 hackable Android game console
XBMC was my main reason to purchase. I'm hoping it will have the power to do Aeon Nox skin and 1080p content over Wifi, so I can put it at any place in house. Purchased one for now w extra controller. If it works well w XBMC will be buying a second one for the kids TV so they have on demand kids movies from my ripped to hdd bluray collection. Things like games, other useful apps, old school emu, etc are just cherry on top .

Only thing I am hoping for is a IR accessory, much like Logitech's one for the ps3. Would be great to be able to turn it on in an Activity w the Harmony One. I already use Yatse for XBMC on my N4, so a third controller (ouya controller) to turn it on would be a shame, but hopefully someone comes up w something...
