Yes, but for $99, you are getting one hell of an Android system.

Honestly, the Ouya took a while to get to market, and it now has older hardware than most current cell phones. If anything, that would doom it. Hopefully though, the devs will still get on board.

I voted yes but I also plan to get an Archos TV Connect. The OUYA would travel with me for visits to my folks house & hotels.

I will buy it, for those $99 its very cheap, even if it (probably) becomes €99 for Europe.

Just a great device.

From the standpoint of a casual gamer and movie buff in college, I would not mind paying a measly $99 for a reasonably powerful device that can plug into my TV, let me easily use my XBMC server, Netflix, Youtube, and Hulu Plus whilst allowing me to play some of the excellent games Android has brought me.

MADFINGER makes some really well scripted games with the best graphics I have ever seen. Samurai II was maybe a dollar? And the artwork is fantastic and it's a fun button masher with a comic book style. Shadowgun is $2. Gears of War really isn't that much different, and it's $60. Need for Speed Most Wanted is the most fun I have ever had playing a racing game.

Dead Trigger is free, as is Subway Surfers and Temple Run 2, and a plethora of Freemium/Server games. The games are good. And as much as I'm a snob about my games, some free ones kick butt. And end up being maybe 50 megabytes. Which is surprisingly well optimized.

We have enough big names to keep my hardcore side and a friend entertained. Need for Speed, Minecraft, Dead Space, Grand Theft Auto, Sonic, Call of Duty, The Sims, etc.

And I mean, emulators... games from classic style devs like Gamevil.

And keep in mind if the games are well optimized they will look extremely good, just compare the first 360 games to Halo 4 on the same Xbox.

No more subscription required to play your darn games (XBL)

And then the nerd activist in me enjoys an open source movement, a toy to tinker with, an emphasis for indie development, and better market competition. The team interacts with users. Oh and it's a brushed aluminum box that can replace my Xbox 360 and Roku 2 both of which I hate! Cool.

In answer to almost all of your questions: Why does xda developers have different sections for each device?

The answer is that programs, tools, bootroms, in fact, almost everything, runs differently from device to device.

That sweet new game thats out at the moment? it doesnt run on the first iteration of android dongles due to hardware limitations.|

Speaking of hardware, the Ouya jumps that little issue by having uniform hardware from one device to the next, which means that (unlike even xbox360 and playstation games) developers are making their games run well on only ONE device, with ONE processor, ONE set of assembly instructions, ONE set amount of ram, and the same graphics processor on EVERY device.

Thats why its better than the alternative. It's a DEDICATED device.

Most People think it will have the power of an mobile phone, but the tegra 3 in the ouya is 1.6 ghz since it does not need to save battery power.

I'll probably buy one... realistically I dont think they got it to market quick enough... cheapy Chinese devices such as the MK808 and MK802 etc really does what they seem to be aiming at.. I have one... it plays all my emulators and games I want it to, gamepad, keyboard etc all working... hardcore games I leave to my games rig

I think the best thing it has going for it is the support of Team XBMC.... killer app! It kept old Xbox's under alot of TV's for years after the 360 was released and before the jump to multi platform...
