OUYA Gaming Console - Anyone getting this?

6 replies 102 views Edited Feb 6, 2013

I was browsing GameStops website and saw a picture of some new "gaming" console that said OUYA. After reading up on todays news, I guess it was announced today.

 

It'll cost $99, and will run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean - it'll be all open source.

Coming June 2013.

 

Not that you guys care, but now you know! Man Tongue

I've heard good things and for $99 I might just check this one out.

Announced today?  Even the video you posted dates back to August last year.  It must be a release date/month that was just announced.

 

I was somewhat interested at first, but it sounded like the early models/dev kits, whatever they were, had a lot of issues.  Hopefully that means those are being addressed, but it still isn't something I really want, especially now that I have an Android phone.  I really don't need this on top of all the other gaming devices I have.

Well my first choice of right now is the Ps4.Yet i will be open minded to seeing what any new console will bring to the table.

 

EXCEPT THE CRAP BOX DEUCE BY MICRO SUCK!!!!

 

I will never buy another console from those **bleep**.They lost me forever as a customer with their Ad box/kinect box/ giving the finger to the core gammer crap box..

 

F U MICROSUCK

Crap Box.. it only does everything poorly and charges you for it.

Open source is not to be sneezed at. The success of Android itself is a good David vs Goliath example.

 

I'll probably get one, but I'll watch from the sidelines, at first. Since I don't have anything Android yet, if I can root it, that will seal the deal.

Giving it the wait and see approach. I use Blackberry so I know very little about Android. I have no interest in playing games on a phone so this could be a chance to play any worthwhile games. We'll see what happens. Either way, I'll be picking up a Wii U first.
