Hi, this console has praised enormous success in kickstarter.com. Why this happened?, well this is due high expectations for gamers to a OPEN-SOURCE video game console. What that means?. It means that the developers and publishers will have total control over their creations (games), and it also support On-Live cloud service, it has fully integrated the Android iOS and the 4G network like any smartphone. This is for sure the best example of what is called "cloud-gaming", with lower game prices and a huge variety of games for every one. As I said, this not only represent a threat to Wii-U but also the other next-gen consoles or whatever are called.
What you think?...
Yep, I've read all 'bout this thing. Truly interestin'.
Is the OUYA a threat itself to the Wii U? Unless the Wii U fails my expectations radically, no, absolutely not. The concepts that the OUYA have been built on, however? Abso-****in'-lutely. The OUYA is half the price of a bloody Wii. Games will also be cheaper. It's completely open source and easy to mod 'n hack. It's wallet friendly, user friendly, hacker friendly. There's a reason why Square has actually partnered up to bring FF3 to the OUYA.
The OUYA has a shitton of support on the 'net. It ain't mainstream in the media yet, but I'm not even sure it needs t' be to sell successfully at this point. Hell, since they're cheap in comparison to EVERY other game system I damn-well might get one if both Sony and Microsoft's next gen consoles turn out to be utter shit, as is currently bein' speculated.
It's certainly a step in the right direction to evolve gaming, in a way.
Where as I dont like the WiiU, the Ouya (Pronounced OHHHH YEAHHHH! In Machomans voice RIP)has more promise to me.
If I had £99 laying round it would be a day one buy, the WiiU has yet to spark any interest in my mind
The Ouya is more a Steam based "console" it isn't gonna play discs at all. Having less features the current consoles.
^Its Android powerd, games do need to be ported to it for them to work, but so far Squaresoft and up for it and Namco are tempted
At the end of the day its a $99 PC thats made for games, ok it has cancer (Onlive), but that can be cured
