I back the Ouya for a few reasons:

-Its a good and cheap gaming systems for kids and adults alike

-Good media device for watching netflix, hulu, etc without a pc

-Its portable (compared to next gen consoles / pc) and easy to set up it seems

Hopefully we could see some good games at the release.

Hrm I never did check on this... Tho Im "pretty sure" it should work since this is designed to be rooted. CIFS support. I mean if I can access my NAS/Media Share stuff... and play videos and so.. woot. I could save alot of wear and tear on my PS3! Bonus thought for me and that would be used alot more lol. (Now if only I had a remote for Ouya)

technically speaking, the perk is early access. If everything goes to plan, we'll be getting it in March. The other people may have to wait till June. Ouya said KS backers would get it before anyone else, which appears they will be holding up.

We shall see, It could also mean we KS people get to bug report this out or find flaws that are fixed before people like Gamestop (who has it for preorder now) get it and cause bigger issues if things go wrong.

I backed it! Can't wait to get it. For me it is not really filling any roles, but I think it will be a fun addition!

I backed one quite late, but I think I'll give it a try. I like Android very much and I like the games too. Did anyone actually paid more to receive the black version? I think the normal looks better...

I, after a persuading conversation with a buddy, backed it. I am sure it will fail (or at least not even dent wii/xbox/ps3 sales) as a home console, but running emus and custom roms was what I was excited about. I mean $100 is not too bad and hopefully they'll have a couple of great games and maybe some entertainment apps like Netflix to make even more worthwhile.

Yeah to be honest, the gaming part of it I don't even find particularly exciting. Maybe some of the emulators which are sure to be released.

I wish I had this. My Gen 1 PS3 just died. Ugh. Lost all my backwards compatibility.

Didn't back it on KS, but pre-ordered prior to Jan 31st. Can't wait to try XBMC on it.
