I found this really interesting:
Its a new open, Android 4.0 based game console that has so far raised 5.78 Million Dollars from 45,100 backers on Kickstarter.
It will be fully compatible with all existing Android tablet/smartphone games from launch.
If all goes well, the Ouya will be available to buy in March 2013, for only 99 Dollars a piece.
Here are the tech specs for it:
[li] Tegra3 quad-core processor[/li][li]1GB RAM[/li][li]8GB of internal flash storage[/li][li]HDMI connection to the TV, with support for up to 1080p HD[/li][li]WiFi 802.11 b/g/n[/li][li]Bluetooth LE 4.0[/li][li]USB 2.0 (one)[/li][li]Wireless controller with standard controls (two analog sticks, d-pad, eight action buttons, a system button), a touchpad[/li][li]Android 4.0[/li][li]ETHERNET! (Announced by Muffi 7/18)[/li][/ul]
Obviously, this isn’t a PS3 or Xbox 360 killer hardware-wise.
Rather, it is a cheap, open, anyone-can-develop-for-it Android compatible game console for “the rest of us”.
Its going to be interesting to see how well Ouya does in the market.
