Seems like a great price

I just can't bring myself to ever buy one. I love me my physical collection, not a fan of digital

That being said, I do have some friends who would appreciate this deal and am going to let them know :)

Same, almost came close to ordering it but stopped myself right at the checkout page. Have a RetroN 5 on pre-order anyways and I feel that the Ouya would just end up getting shelved and never used.

Tempting but had to pass.  I would have got it if Hay Day worked with it but it will get cheaper and the $25 Ouya credit doesn't do anything for me.  I would be using this for emulation, is the Ouya

1.  Better

2.  Easier

3.  Safer

 

for emulation?  Thanks!

I would have considered this but this is at least the second time Amazon has had this on sale in less than 3 months. It must not be selling that great and the reports about it are true. Getting it cheap would be great just to at least have it but if it's going to be tank soon no point (unless it miraculously becomes valuable after its death).

Not even close to it.

 

I was stupid enough to back it on kickstarter and I got one. Luckily I sold it on ebay fast enough that I made my money back.

 

I got it and realized "wait, there isn't a damn thing I cant do on my pc plus another million things already, and most of these games I can play on my cell phone as well.......I just wasted money on a piece of crap box that does what I can already do!"

 

Really this is a novelty at best. Its only draw was the ability to hook it to a tv but shit with even the most minimal of effort you can do that with a pc, hell you can hook your cell phone to a tv if you want which makes this thing a complete and utter sham of a game system.

 

This is a thing you buy for 10 bucks just to dick around with for a week, then put it back in the box and shove it in the closet.

It's a decent solution if you're looking for an device you can run emulators on which plugs into your TV and has a controller. That's about all I use mine for.

 

For example I check Virtual Console games to see if they're worth buying if I'm not sure.  It's got a really good N64 emulator, thats about the generation it can manage, N64, PS1 etc or lower.

For that price [or less], you can buy a used Wii+Classic Controller and softmod it to emulate games on your TV.

Plus it can still play Wii/Gamecube games.

For free or a cable, you can run a ton of emulators on your smartphone, run it to the tv with a cable, and use a paired ps3 game controller as the controller.

 

The problem with the Ouya, is its technology was already surpassed when it was released, and upgrading it as was the original plan costs more than buying new tech.

 

They ARE however smart now, licensing the basic android tech out to tv and disc player manufacturers. I can see that being a nice little featured included with a tv purchase.

Thank you for that wonderful insight we would not have gotten from knowing that it was a Deal of the Day or reading two other posts in the same page.
