Default Ouya and current Google Play Store games.

I am just curious can the Ouya play games that I already have purchased on the Google Play Store? I am interested in purchasing the Ouya but only if I can play my current games on it as well.

In theory... I put Play Market on my Bluestacks and my games that weren't 3D ran fine. With the proper hardware (Ouya) the 3D ones shoudl run, too.

How would the controller work for this though?

Something like this would probably work very properly for the situation.

well they said we can root it so it should be very easy to install google play, so i see no reason why you couldn't. but some may be hard to play with the controller but we will see when we get there. hopefully mines here next month

Cool Games on Ouya

I Plan to use Sixaxis Controller app with games that don't support controlers as i use it on my tablet and i can enable gamepad for showgun if needed. We need someone to test a gamepad supported game on the system with the Ouya controler to see if it works that way.

Does Ouya even have Google Play Store?
I heard it only has their own market (like Ouya Market)

I want my Ouya not only for games, but also a media centre. Like playing movies from HDD ext., browsing, twitter, facebook, and others applications from Play Store.
how cool is that

it hasn't been stated one way or the other. If apps can be side loaded, then I would say even if it's there, you could extract Google Play and loaded it that way, as well as the apps you want. The only thing that isn't know, what apps will play nice with Ouya's interface using a controller. A lot of apps, if not all, are designed from a touch input design.

I don't know if there is anything that Google Play needs besides an Android OS to function. So there could be reasons it may not work despite being able to load it on the Ouya.

Ouya will have their own stores called "Ouya Store". All games are ported to support Ouya consoles.
Shadow Gun is confirmed to work on Ouya. Please wait for the rest announcement!
