Looks like a clone of Roku, except more expensive. *bleep* this shit, it'll never take off.

But it's an Android console. D:

No thanks Amazon, I heart your website as it's super reliable but *bleep* that.

They actually have a pretty nice setup going with this, the only thing is its supposed to be a game console but requires you to pay extra for the gamepad. The remote looks like it has a track pad like the ipod nano but that won't cut it.

It might sell as a set-top box, even if its just due to the kindle fire brand, but asking people to pony up for real controllers to make games playable while already at the $100 mark won't fly. Might as well pick up a retro console or something

So it's an ouya that can stream?

It'll probably make some money being on amazons front page for the rest of eternity but it can't compete with roku/Ps3 in terms of media.

Get a 49$ roku or a $150-$200 Ps3 but there's not much room for an in between. Even Apple tv has an advantage with their easy compatibility with all apple products.

Only $99? It's pretty cheap tbh. I can see it going high. But then again, I'm not aware much about Android gaming.

Remember, the Ouya is $99 and comes with the controller, so it's a little exoensive for an android console.
