Last I checked, Ouya still uses a proprietary marketplace. Fresh out of the box, if I want to play Angry Birds on it, I get to buy it yet again. Also means those thousands of apps don't exist unless a developer ports 'em. I have no interest in maintaining yet another collection of digital software through another storefront. Now, if they really make it as easy to root and install a stock android OS, I'll have reason to get one. Though I lose nothing by waiting to see how easy that turns out.
Last I checked, you can root it. Put yer stock Android. Play yer stock Android games. Use yer custom XBMC. Do a little dance none of us will ever hopefully see.
That's what I'm waiting on.
And that controller looks horrible. I thought they were going to redesign it?
Stock Android has controller support. So... root it. Use a different controller?
