Right. I just posted it because of the first post.

So ouya (with the right software) can do stream games from the pc.
In other words. it will do the same linke the nvidia shield device.

Sells old 3d chipsets to Ouya..

Makes it's own competing product on next gen chipsets.

I'd personally go with Ouya, but feel bad because some of my money is going towards funding NVidia's ass-hattery..

*Such an appropriate term for them.

Tegra 4 was unavailable at the time they began developing the Ouya's hardware. I see no asshattery. Field's still open to develop a superior Tegra 4 platform that can outplay the Shield, but for TV's.

Agreed, my PS VITA can stream my PS3 games, but I play them on my PS3... so... yeah?

Because your pc screen is mostly smaller than the tv. Also you can not chill on your couche (i guess) while playing on the pc.
Their are a lot of good arguments for streaming a game to the television.

Except this is an increasingly moot point with TV's having VGA inputs, and many PC's (ESPECIALLY gaming PC's) having HDMI out, with long periferal cables or front USB pots as well.

EDIT: I meant 'not sitting on couch'. Need to learn reading comprehension. We're in agreement.

Red face Ouya
Ouya definitely Ouya, who knows Ouya 2.0 will get a 8 core system on this price point.

I backed the Ouya. I have no interest in the Shield.
