Default I want one

As someone who has spend several hundred dollars building MAME/Arcade cabinets to get my old school nerd fix in this looks like something I would purchase. Granted I already have some original xbox's that are already loaded with emulators connected to my televisions and 2 Apple TV units in my house I can see this as being a device to combine the two.

I hope this project is successful and if they are available the next time I have an extra 100 bucks to blow I will likely get one.

This is why I've decided to go ahead and back the project. Even if it flops, those two things alone will make it worth the paltry $100.

I'll have two please.

If it all goes ahead as planned, they will be looking at releasing an updated version every 2 years i think. They cant go 10 years surely??

I ran across this the other day on kickstarter and was pumped, my wife was just shaking her head

I am excited to see where this goes especially since they were given the extra cash for development.

The ideas and concepts this is behind are great: an affordable console (not meant to compete with other consoles such as the PS3 or 360), development for it is free, and the creators urge others to root it as they wish! Great platform for indie devs, truly.

Though, I do see a lot problems here. One of them being the hardware for the machine, but it isn't with the hardware itself: it's with the progress of android hardware in general. At the rate we're going now, the Ouya will be too outdated to play games for more powerful hardware in a relatively short amount of time.

Another issue is with, again, not the machine, but with developers. Too many indie developers are notorious for pumping out lazily-made games and branding them as retro or just making no attempt at making quality games for a quick buck. And then you have free-to-play MMOs, but I'm sure you know where I'm going with that. To put it simply, the Ouya will be plagued with quite the amount of shovelware games, which won't bode well for its sale.

I think I had a few other points to make, but I can't remember them now, LOL.
