Despite somewhat lackluster reviews, apparently Ouya is selling all right.

For all we know, “sold out” could mean all 1000 units :P

But in all seriousness, that’s good news for them. Shows that there’s a future for them. $100 is a nice cheap alternative and good enough for kids and adults that don’t care much for hardcore gaming.

I think the premise that every game has to have some free content is interesting. Kind of reminds me of the old shareware days. I’m not a hardcore gamer, but it doesn’t really promote itself as a casual game platform. Puzzle type games probably wouldn’t work well on it. I think it’s kind of a retro/hardcore device.

it has the most important thing a joystick. which leaves it open to hardcore game making. which Im sure at least a few developers will pursue. some hardcore gamers do realize. without a ps3 or ps4. you can still produce a good game. even a good looking game

I wouldn’t worry about that at the moment.

I’m working with the companies that manufacture 90% of the worlds TV’s and DSTB’s, all of them now understand that games can run on their hardware, good games at that, and all of them are looking at the issue of gaming input.

If one of them does the gamepad they have sent me a prototype of, you will be very happy. Very happy indeed. Far better than an Xbox game pad

thats good to know, I wasnt a fan of the diagonal position of the xbox joysticks. I realize they wanted to be different from the competition. but there had to be a better option than that

Does look kind of weird. I don’t think I’d mind, personally, because I prefer the dpad for directions, apparently they did also.
