It has Netflix and a web browser.

So yeah, what exactly does this do? Play Fruit Ninja and Angry birds? Or can it actually play games like AC3 and Far Cry 3?

I'm probably going to get it for Twitch alone. The other stuff will just be a bonus.

The only difference from the kickstarter is that the other controllers are more expensive?

I cannot believe apple hasn't done this yet for iOS- it's probably only a meter of time. I think if apple made something lime this it would be a monster hit. I would buy the OUYA, but I'm too connected to iOS. When apple gets around to making this I could see games being universal with ipad and iPhone,

I personally don't really see the point of Ouya...but then again, cell phone games are boring for me for most part...doesn't usually last me more than 2-3 hours

June would be weird considering anticipated delivery of Pier Solar HD for other platforms is December 2013...but who knows?

Hmm.. these retail models appear to be Black, but the Kickstarter model appears to be silver... Has there been a design change, or are regular Kickstarter backers getting an exclusive color after all?

I'm actually kind of interested in this, but I don't think I'll be in just yet. Want to see feedback first.

Im a kickstarter backer simply for no other reason than I grew bored with Sony & Microsofts constant barrage of fps shooters. Wanted some creativity.

I don't understand why people can't understand, just because it uses a mobile OS doesn't mean it's going to all be mobile games. You'll probably see a bunch of quick ports of Android Market games, but the market is for games like you would expect to find on XBLA and PSN.

There's plenty of creativity on both systems, and neither company puts out a lot of FPS games.

Get a PC. All kinds of weird stuff on PC. Then get an HDMI cable and plug it in to your TV. This is coming from the happy owner of a 360 and PS3, by the way.

For those worrying it's just going to be a bunch of phone games, be aware that Double Fine is going to bring The Cave and their kickstarted adventure game to Ouya. The adventure game was already coming to Android, but The Cave (regardless of its faults) is interesting because I don't know that it would have come out on Android otherwise because although the platforming is fairly basic, I don't think it'd be much fun on a touchscreen.

Ouya=100$


PC= At least 500$ if you want a decent setup.


100$ is pretty good for a emulator/streaming/media center machine.

Can someone explain this thing to me? I mean is it going to be kind of like iPhone games where you pay 99 cents for a game? Also is it going to be tied to an account or console? Stupid questions I know.

The new Shadowgun game sold over a million copies on Google Play in less than two weeks since it's been out so don't be shocked to see shooters show up on Ouya too.

If anything, I expect Ouya to get more shooters than regular Android since developers will probably look at it as more of a console and less of a mobile device than most Android development seems to spur.

The quick and dirty explanation: Take an iPad, remove the screen, hook it up to the TV, add a bluetooth controller, and price it at $100. That's essentially what this is. Only instead of buying stuff through iTunes, you buy stuff through the Ouya store, and instead of running off iOS, it runs off Android. Expect content to be tied to an account. Games that are strictly ports from the standard Android system will likely be in the normal mobile price range, but there's not much stopping someone from charging $20 an app....or more through in-app purchases.

To get a little more technical, there'll be other differences...i believe Ouya allows apps to use more ram since it isn't a multi-tasking device, and it's designed to be "hacker-friendly", but that's not information you'll really need.

I don't see how that would be a selling point to anyone. Both The Cave and the Kickstarter game are planned to be released on multiple platforms and The Cave can already be purchased on XBL and PSN, as well as PC, Mac, Linux and WiiU. It seems like anyone buying an Ouya will already have at least one of those platforms already and by the time Ouya hits retail, The Cave will already be months old. It really seems like too little too late.

Any idea on the black color shown as opposed to the silver on Kickstarter, anyone? Very curious here!

The one thing that bugs me about the Ouya is the limited internal storage. Like the Wii U it's depending on us plugging in a USB HDD, which increases the size of the whole thing dramatically in this case. The HDD will be larger than the console. I wish it had SD card slot instead. Maybe you can use a flash drive, but Nintendo discourages that, and I imagine they'll discourage that for the Ouya too, but I'm not sure.
