OUYA: the new console

:iconwolfraid:

some of you may have heard of this before.
recently, there's a new console by android that's currently in development.
it's name is the OUYA (possibly having an even sillier name than the wii u. also, insert kool-aid man joke here.)
i've seen the console itself and it's practically smaller than the controller itself.
quite possibly the smallest console ever made.

right now, i'm not entirely sure what to think of this new console considering i never used android before.
will it be a hit? a big epic fail?
only time will tell...

Think i read about it, it will probably be to small to really hit big and attract devs to it, it got funding, alittle but probably won't fly. but thats just what the article said so maybe it'll be good.

Doesn't need "big" devs, just Glu Mobile, Gameloft and Madfinger.

If they can manage to get it set up with Google Play support the thing will fly right off the shelves. If you buy a game on GP, you pay for it once, and can then play it on all devices you link to that account, if it is compatible.

Also for the people who have no idea what games can run on Android.
Each of these games costs about $4.99 to $6.99

Seems pretty meh to me. It just seems like a cell phone that you plug into your tv and can't make calls with. I'm hoping people actually do something more interesting with it but right now I'm not convinced it will be worth getting anytime soon.

If they can get Google Play support, it'll be a hit. If not, then I'll have doubts about it.

I'm interested. I'd love to play games like Dead Trigger, and Modern Combat 3 on a much larger screen!

Anyone remember the Gamestation? Virtual Boy? -

NOPE.

It will have one good month, and die.

It has way too much competition. The Wii U was just released, along with the PSV. I'm expecting the makers of Xbox to release a handheld console also (although I have no official news on this, I am expecting it).

Unless it has the ability to compete (which I highly doubt) it is gonna have a nice warm welcoming, and die within the month it is released.

Let's look at what every console has:
The ability to play games of the generation before it
Virtual consoles where you can buy both old games and No Export for You games
The ability for constant replay
Constant updates
Great games that will only be released for that console
Many other things that differ person to person

Seriously. This thing will die out in the month it is released.
