Personally I do not intend to buy this but I'm really curious on how it will perform in the market

Well, it sounds like it will have GameCube quality graphics or better, but definitely less then Wii.

 

Both 3DS & Vita surpass Wii even.

So yeah, I am personally not going to buy this.

 

But I don't think it fail nor succeed. I think it will be in a nice middle ground settle into a nest of safety and moderateness or however you want to describe what I'm describing, LOL.



I will most definitely buy it but not for gaming but for xbmc. Several years I was planning on building an htpc but every setup demanded too much power. Second option was sth like WD TV (Live) from Western Digital but to me this thing depended too much on how WD supports it and the chipset was sometimes very picky with some formats.
Now this thing comes with Android and Tegra3, so the same hard- and software like my Nexus7 where xbmc works like a charm! By now hw-accel is still in progress by devs but will be worked on as I write this and will most probably be fixed when the small Ouya launches. It is a low-power multimedia-center perfect for "SmartTV"-features!

what?! to me it looks like most gc-games looked better than most of wii-games - not the hardware's fault but the devs... and if 3ds is better than ouya? Look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsnaZwCxN24 This runs on a Nexus 7 which has the same hardware as Ouya...

So who or which demographic will this be aimed at?

PS2 graphics? Is that a joke or something? 3DS has better graphics than PS2 and it has PICA 200 GPU for crying out loud!

$99 for a home console with thirteen year-old hardware?

it's an open platform. there has been lots of information posted in this and the other thread you poste in which is why i sent you a link. are you not reading the op?

cause you should know the answer to your question by now. there is emulation, game dev., and general screwing around with the hardware. you can do anything with it because it's mostly un-restricted.



Not interested in small time consoles like these. Already can't stand games on the app store/android so I don't see this being much different, except with a controller.

Good read.

The only thing that gets me thinking is the long term support due to its hardware. The OUYA packs a Tegra 3, however, the Tegra 4 will be ready in March along with the release of the OUYA...
Being a console, fixed hardware is given, but, they will need some serious dev support to keep the console relevant for years to come. With that said, I hope yearly big advances by ARM processors don't make them treat the OUYA like a tablet with yearly revisions and therefore singling out previous buyers.

 

Still, I'm very interested in the micro console, mainly this OUYA.
