So good to see we have our philanthropic priorities straight.

Kickstarter isn't about philanthropy. It says right on its home page that it's a funding platform for creative projects. OUYA is exactly the kind of project that Kickstarter is designed for.

More like entrepreneurial investment than philanthropy

Google's Nexus Q development team is kicking themselves. They were SO CLOSE, but OUYA hit the nail on the head. Open-source is the future of gaming. Hackability should be encouraged.

They are already at $920,000, it has been on Kickstarter less than a Day. That is just amazing.

What happens if they take the money and run? It sounds neat, but details are sketchy and a $99 price point seems unrealistically low.

Fill, there is no obligation on the part of Kickstarter projects to complete their project. Supporters' "pledges" are essentially donations provided on good-will and trust.

Damn. That is surprising. When I checked this morning they had just over $100k, now they have met their unusually high goal already? Amazing.

Mystic Aurora, this console is meant to be open source and encourage modding. It is an open system by itself.

Obviously the Phantom and the N-Gage should have gone Kickstarter, AMIRIGHT? Seriously though, I hope this is as awesome as they sell it to be. I'm betting it'll only be so if the community takes it over, however, and not the developers.

To the people thinking its a scam or blah blah, the team behind this has some reputable developers and designers on board which is why it managed to get picked up by major tech blogs and spread like it has. They also secured some private funding before putting the idea on Kickstarter...

Of course money does change people, but I doubt that will happen here.

Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait.... Minecraft will be a title available?

*bleep* me I like this, I like this alot. Even moreso seeing as we can upgrade the console and pretty mich do everything we can't do(legally) with current consoles.

Is this a dream?
