    Considerin' it wasn't like this 'till a couple of years ago (and the fact I'm complainin' 'bout not having a manual of all things), my complaints over a lack of manuals must be a tad odd.
    I know what you mean. I use to love the manuals and maps. Remember the maps? I have been known to purchase a used game and then chase down the Box art insert and then the manual. The manuals to fighters used to have certain moves just to get you started.

    Absolutely, it's certainly nice that some games do still continue the grandeur map tradition, like Red Dead Redemption or Skyrim. Neat trinkets that come with games for free like said maps are always a great bonus of a keepsake.

    With all this talk of boxart, I'm realizin' I'll also miss my stacks of games on shelves 'n furniture once the move to digital-only occurs. There's somethin' appealing to me 'bout towers upon rows of game cases everywhere. ... S'pose that's what they call bein' a core gamer.

    Back to the topic at hand, since this is android-based, is it gonna have any sort'a phone-related options? Not that it at all matters, simply curious.

    Skype I'm sure, but it will need a headset. Something for that USB port I guess.

    The big question is, "what is their business model and how will they maintain their income after the initial volume of hardware sells?" Wouldn't want to invest the money only to find 6 months later I couldn't play because their servers were shut down. Are they going to be dependent on their own first party games?

    I have entered this question on their FAQ. And I am waiting for an answer.

    Believe I read somewhere that the people behind the Ouya will receive a small percentage of every download's cost, every sale. Standard business model indeed.

    ... Don't quote me though.

    Nar its not like Onlive. Its Android based so that means that it will keep getting support threw the Android market place.

    Speaking of stacks of games on shelf's. I do believe that with my recent shelf I have already filled it.
    NEED MORE SHELF'S! Physical media will never die out as there is already so much of it

    On a related note. Onlive died the other day then got bought out.
