OnLive still exists?
Yep. I wish Valve would buy them, so that I could get all my Steam games on the OUYA console. In fact, Valve should buy OUYA and turn it into the Steam console.
Considering the OUYA has yet to exist that's probably not a terribly good move for Valve right now.
Final numbers are in:
Preorders are up on their site now, and the system can be had for as little as $109 (in the US, $119 everywhere else). It's expected to ship in seven months.
Fucking bullshit is what it is. I expect many tears to be shed over this thing.
Only $9 more to make sure you'd get your money back if they fail to ship. Suckers.
Looks like the Ouya got an Amazon page. It's set up to allow $99 pre-orders, and is expected to ship in June (link).
There's also this huge promo page set up for it they're linking to from the Amazon.com front-page (link).
And additional controllers can be purchased for $50 each (link).
Here's what they've got to say about it:
They seem to not understand what "specs and features" means
That's just my heading, I moved stuff around and edited out some extraneous sales language to put the important need-to-know stuff first. The default text is on the Amazon pages linked (it's even worse there), and can be found under "Product Description."
$100 system with $50 controllers? Eesh. Also, is there a charging cable/system for the controllers yet, or just AA batteries?
I still think this ends in tears.
Are they going to beat Tegra 4 tablets out the door? If they do, it won't be by much.
Also, how many people are developing Android games for controllers, again?
If the makers of Ouya have their way, there will be a new Ouya console released every year:
Beyond upgraded internal system specs, I wonder if there will be other changes to the console that will prevent after-market hardware & accessories from previous iterations from working with the next.
"We will annually release new versions of our pointless and shitty Android console that nobody will buy."
I just want to see a Kickstarter for each one.
The Android console will gain traction the same year that Linux breaks out on the desktop.
Let's see if they manage one.
HEY GREAT IDEA GUYS
I for one am tired of the way game consoles all run all the software that's released for them. I wish there was a lot more guesswork involved, so I could buy things and then find out afterward that my console isn't new enough to run them. TIA for making my dreams come true, team Ouya!
