This belongs in the OT gaming thread..

That being said.. its not impressive to me..

It really doesnt stand a chance being marketed as a gaming device..

Perhaps as a social media/video device that happens to play games would be a better choice of marketing..

I agree, I'm impressed with how big Ouya has gotten over the past few weeks but I just don't think that Android is a viable platform for console gaming.

Wouldn't have the hardware or the ability with software to come close to competing

no reason it's a bad platform for consoles, it's the arm architecture that might not be up to the performance standards but i think you'll be surprised at what the terga 3 can do. it won't replace the 7 core processor in the ps3 but this isn't meant to compete with that. so game developers would have to resort to better story lines and game play. it's a way for people to get into game development and share. it will never have a market share that sony and ms have but i think the underground following can get very large.

This is exactly right. Is it gonna be the best console out there? Probably not. It will be, however, a neat toy that is worthy of MY $99.

I think it would be neat if they just sold the controller and had a curated app store so you could run the same games on a phone as well.

Microslut has announced a $99 Ecks Bocks a few months ago...

Yeah you have to pay for live with y but most people won't factor that in and this will be overlooked...

It needs to be marketed as something besides a gaming platform.. other areas, it would sell great.. in the gaming realm.. it will get torn apart..

Ohhh, the Ouya...
This little thing has gotten some big attention lately.

I'm interested. Very interested in it.
I don't think it'll compete at ALL against the mainstays of console gaming...

But a tweakable, rootable, android console?
With huge backing?
At very least, I just want to sit back and watch what happens with all this hoopla!

Though, in my opinion, this thing could be an Indie Gaming Developer's dream.
We'll see what happens, though.

No kidding!
Just what sort of a ROM goes on a "console"?
Perhaps a lot of focus on media streaming and definitely a bit of emulation...

With how small and portable this thing is, it could be great to take around and quickly pop into any HDMI TV to play games or watch movies.
