This looks really interesting, but there's always that looming cloud of whether or not major developers will throw their hat in the pile. That's not to say indie titles can't provide a lot of enjoyment, but many console gamers are also invested in their favorite titles and series games and that would make them hard-pressed to want to change platforms just to support "a cool idea".
cool... $100 new console.... but when it all comes down to it, is what are the games?? I dont care if its 50$ console if all im playing is some Tetris game.

I wouldn't mind that at all ;D
Originally posted by Drekker17 I'm just wondering who is going to buy the thing. PC gamers already have the king of indie platforms, console gamers don't care as much about indie and already get better indie games than ios/android, if they want to play those games they'll just play on their phones. Ios people will unlikely buy it. It leaves only android gamers...and I don't think they care so much to play on TV. I'm positive the Ouya won't sell well in the beginning because gamers, casual and hardcore, won't see its value...but if it can get good games on it over time (ultimately the biggest factor)...it might do ok. Hopefully the devs are thinking with that mentality.
3 million pledged isnt that bad SO there goes youur theory out the window
Seems more then unrealistic, and like the developers would be far and few with just ports/next to no popular titles..
Reading through their kickstarter page, it's more like they just want people to play pc/mobile games on their tv's....
This just shows that android was the best creation any company could have thought of.
yah this is gonna work
signed Neo-Geo, Atari-Jaguar, Turbo-Grafx, Dreamcast
Well the hardware specs look like a top end mobile infact thinking about it my HT one X is probally more powerfull than my PC was 4 years ago LOL.. so could it be a good dedicated games console?
I dont see why not the android OS is very capable and takes very little resources to run, there are tons of gamse already available on it and not all are casual boring mobile games.. With big game engines like Unreal and Unity easily available for game development on the android platform im pretty sure we could see some really nice games..
Dont get me wrong i mean sure its not designed to be a competitor to the current generation of consoles or the next but it will be cheap and im pretty sure the games wil be cheap as well..
I could see this selling quite well if they manage to pull it off.
Its not somthing i would buy as im really only a pc gamer but i can see a lot of people who would want it
Originally posted by Xzen I think getting into consoles is a mistake. I think slowly we are going to see console making companies merging until you only have 1 console and everyone just developes games and apps for said console.

Dunno, smart tv's are on the brink. Digital delivery turns things more into services than products.
There's a good critique/crystal ball work via gamasutra article on this Ouya:
OUYA, the Android console - naivete at work?
Worth a read!!
I hope it's successful - open console platform - thank you.
Suspect KS will be 2nd funding cycle before VC's/AI's etc are rolled in to make this get off the ground. Still with Mr. Garriot's predictions re social games, who knows?
Bahahahaha All your moneys are belong to us!

Only a gig of ram? Prepare for lots of loading, and poor performance. I can't imagine trying to load and play games, while streaming twitch.tv, and playing at 1080p. Yes, it might have a quad core, but a gig isn't going to let the quad work completely. And only 8 gigs of space? Hopefully it will have some kind of sd card slot? Going to have like 2 games MAYBE on there, unless they are just going to be short games like on the phone. Why would I want that?
I'm highly skeptical, I think it's probably going to be a flop.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
Well we just broek the 4 mil mark which is only a little over 4 times what they were looking for to begin with and still 27 days to go!

It'd be funny as hell if it was all a scam.

So the momentum has slowed down a bit in the past day or so. Were only up to about 4.5 mil and 35k donaters not to bad for just 4 days. Man i need to come up with a idea scam as good as this lol.

Any kind of documentary that will attract so much negative attention that your proponents will throw huge lumps of money at you just to counter-balance that hate.

Originally posted by mackdawg19 The reason they can build this system for $100 bucks is the same reason google can sell there Nexus 7 for $199. It runs on the new tegra 3 proccesor which was designed to be low cost. And no, i don't mean the tegra 3 proccessor thats inside the transformer prime. Nvidia came out with a new low cost platform which makes it cheaper to build budget tablets with a bang. And the GPU inside this console will be the 12 core GPU that Nvidia made. All in all, this is a quality console. ANd just a heads up, mobile gaming has advanced at such a rate, that its almost up to par with the likes of consoles.
Its nowhere near up to par. Unless you are comparing old consoles or the nintendo ds (Final Fantasy for instance). And don't even mention Infinity Blade 1 or 2. Regardless of its very limited gameplay, the graphics aren't that great when compared to a console. Furthermore they are only that nice because there is barely anything going on. Its kind of like the old sports games when audiences/fans would be standing still. Then they progressed to being 2d spirtes with 2 alternate animations and so on and so on.
8GB storage WITHOUT even SD slot, not many larger games at one time...
Still, couple millions might sound like lot of money, but under 100k consoles isn't a lot. Not sure if it is worth devs time to make games for this. And does it reach the amount of sold consoles to people who buy stuff and not just use it as stream or emulator box is a big question...
