Ouya for me.

I already got a note 2, nexus 7 and a M14x r2 for mobile gaming

I may change to Shield if it comes with a GSM / CMDA LTE enable device with 4g but i doubt it. My nexus 7 can steam any pc game off of my M14x via splashtop 2 THD without needing any special hardware.

I am really interested in the shield if it is not expensive.

At the moment, I would definetly bet on Ouya, simply for cost. As added bonus, there's supposed to be new Ouya every year, so while first one might be bit behind times, in few years they should be up for task to compete seriously against rest of the consoles/handheld devices.

Two different devices made for completely different purposes and $300 apart.

I'm behind the Ouya, my high end phone is for mobile gaming. The Ouya will be a nice hackable Android ran console to chill with at home. And due to the Devs doing their best to make it hackable, it will be a slightly more free platform. Heck, they put the thing together with normal screws for petes sake. Not to mention it's very cheap.

Exactly that, Ouya and Shield are miles apart both in price range and target audience.
Plus the streaming from your pc thing sounds like a gimmick to me. 1. You have to get a new video card if your pc doesn't already have one that supports the streaming and 2. If I have to be near my pc to play, why on earth would I use a crappy controller with a built in tiny screen instead of playing on the actual pc with a much bigger screen and a gaming mouse and keyboard?

Clearly agree !
Different audience as first creation date was different and Ouya wont need a battery so it can be used
Would love a Ouya with Tegra4 (but will be next year if i understood well) !

Re: Ouya vs Nvidia Shield
I really don't see a competition here. Looking at the two devices they couldn't be further away from each other and the way they are marketed.

Re: Ouya vs Nvidia Shield
With the specs it got, I think ouya will work great.
It won't have to worry about battery,
Widgets or the horrible facebook app sitting into its memory all the time.
On the other hand shield is just a phone with a controller.
The stream from pc feature is more of a gimmick from what I can see.
Nvidia gpu's support 3d but you need a special monitor and some special 3d kit for it to run.
There's gotta be a catch with this one too

Shield for now...
The thing is that Project Shield is mobile, and the Ouya isn't. That alone is what would lead me to get the Shield. I can save my phone battery for browsing and other stuff, and have a dedicated mobile gaming platform. The only thing is at the rate tech is moving Tegra 5 will be here in 2 years, and my Shield will be outdated...
