What they've done is turned an android tablet into a cube and removed the screen. Honestly there is no major selling point other than the price. All games will be written for Android which means that if you already have an Android device, you will not need this since it will work on all tablets and phones that run that OS. The other issue is that they assume major developers will develop games or exclusives for it. However, they did say that they want all games to follow a free-to-play model so rule out any major developer developing games for it if they're forced to give big games out for nothing.

This would be popular with indie developers since the SDK is free, but I don't see it being a serious contender.

Does anyone even have the specs for it? It says NVidia so it'll likely be using a Tegra chip but I'm not even sure where that falls in comparisons to other consoles and the PC.



I've seen a remarkably similar looking controller elsewhere. OF COURSE, THAT'S A 360 PAD!

It doesn't specify how they implement the F2P in there, so it could be like what happened with Sonic Adventure 2: Battle in which you downloaded the whole game when you got the demo, but could only do the first stage & a few co-op stages. Later when I bought it, the rest was unlocked, though I am mad they took out the Chao karate and some more things to make it dlc.

But I do agree that they'll have a hard time getting big names on the platform.

Also lol $700 for it, yeah no thanks, I didn't even pay that much when the PS3 had the same cost.

It's meant to cost $99, I just think the $700 is the limit for those who donated the money and get a gift as a thank you.

To foreign companies, $99 = £99.

Yeah I know the regular console will just be $99, but $700 for a dev console seems like a bit too much.

The reason for the high price was to get people to support it early on with the donation. Back then it was a very good offer.

This isn't a next-gen console, so I don't know what harbin's getting angry at.

Who in their right mind would waste $800 dollars on a pre-order for this console? Wait till the thing comes out for 99 bucks then I will give it a whirl.

Wasn't getting angry. AFAIK though the Ouya is being marked at as 8th gen, so it is a next-gen console.

TBH most people aren't gonna preorder something that costs nearly 10x the sale price just because it contains 'something special and unique'.
