"The Fire TV features 2 GB of RAM and a dedicated GPU, which Amazon said is the kind "usually found in smartphones." The device's UI includes sections for movies, television, apps and photos in addition to games."

So, basically an Ouya?

I will probably end up buying this if it is well priced and gets some interesting games/features. Ouya did none of those things besides being priced decently



This is looking like a good media streamer. In all likelihood, when they show games, the high-end games will be streaming rather than ran on the console. And they should be high end PC level graphics at 30fps.



Ouya found it rival...

99 dolars, could work for a piece of the market.

All the people saying 'Ouya,' keep in mind this isn't being branded as a gaming device, but as a media streaming device to beat Roku and Apple TV.



i suppose this is cool, but I have enough things plugged into the TV as it is.



This seems completely useless if you own any sort of entertainment device.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!
