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.

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!
