The graphics looks decent

It's pretty small and convenient.

A person is pretty much getting this to support Indie games and wanting to play them.I haven't been playing video games that much and I might get back into it because of the Ouya.

I completely forgot about the Ouya. I'm interested to see what games will be out for it.

I still don't really understand the appeal of the Ouya...

The best way I could simplify it is that it combines the low level of entry for developers that you see on PC with the accessibility of a console. Also, it runs Android which means all your other services like Netflix, Google Music, and YouTube can be accessed.

Doesn't interest me in the least. Most of these android/iphone games are just flash games with a little extra time spent on making them more of a game and they throw a $.99 price tag on them. I have yet to see a game released for that platform that was interesting. Each their own though.

A console that runs on boiled water.

Nope. I can't think of a void this would fill for me. I have all the consoles. I have a PC. I have an Android phone. I'm going to buy an Android tablet. This would quite literally be a waste of money for me.

It still seems less appealing than just developing for PC and releasing the game on your website, Desura, Gamersgate, and then try to get it onto Steam. That seems like you would expose your game to WAY more people than the small subset of people who would ever own an Ouya.

If you've already committed to not releasing on the Xbox 360 or PS3, I don't see how Android is more appealing than just developing for regular ass PC and Mac.

I wouldn't say looking forward to it but more interested what will come after it. I actually hope it does really well and causes more developers to try things. Let a little more competition onto the field. Might make the big three innovate in an interesting way but I doubt this will do that.

I see it more appealing for the developer simply because (I'd imagine) the Ouya will be using Google Play as THE marketplace to get Ouya games from. That would make it easier in my eyes to get exposure on your game versus the PC where you have many different clients like you said and that can make it harder for you to sell your game if you only have it on let's say GamersGate and that's it. Sure, you could try to Greenlight it on Steam but we all know how that's been working out.

My other point is that not every person with a PC might be able to run your game, whereas everyone with an Ouya will be able to run whatever game you're selling (unless your game is a broken piece of crap of course).

Not really. The people behind Ouya have to prove that they can deliver first.

Completely forgot about it until I saw this thread. I'm not really looking forward to it, since I doubt its capabilities and I have no idea whether or not it will genuinely take off.

Having said that, I am not opposed to the Ouya. I wish its developers all the best and if it turns out great, then I'll get one. But without further information or any indication of what games it'll run, I can't be excited. It's currently more-or-less a blackbox to me. I can't get excited over a blackbox.

I love my Archos G9 101. It runs Ice Cream Sandwhich and will probably be updated to Jelly Bean in the near future. It has an HDMI out port and I can use Bluetooth gamepads wirelessly.

What I'm trying to say is that I don't really need an Ouya, because I already have a gaming-capable Android device. I find the idea of an Android console interesting, but it won't do anything that can't be done today with far better alternatives.

So is this thing still coming? Their kickstarter page was last updated over a month ago, their twitter page seems to mostly retweet meaningless tweets every other day (same with the founder Julie Uhrman's twitter), and their official website haven't updated in almost three weeks.

When the thing was "hot" people couldn't stop talking about it, but I honestly can't remember anyone (official or inofficial) talking about it recently. Or am I just being a pessimist?

I always forget that I even bought a console and it's coming... eventually.

Main purpose for my cube is to be a small emulator computer. If it's successful commercially too, there's a nice additional "feature".

Have they actually shown what it'll be capable of graphics wise?

I'm certainly interested in it, but at the moment more at the conceptual level than what it will be actually capable of.

Never was all that hyped for it to begin with, though I will admit that the hype died down damn fast for his project. It may be success by the end of the day, but I have my reservations and am taking a wait and see approach to how it turns out.

No, they have shown nothing but renders of the device and specs that they want in it.

Its amazing how much money this thing got and how many people in this thread are actually excited for this despite the fact that this unknown company has given nothing but concepts.

Did they ever talk about how they're going to mass manufacture it? I feel like they're going to have to ship a decent sized number out of the gate based on the donations they got.

The idea of a more open console is very attractive. I hate playing games on my phone because on screen buttons are terrible. I hope it ends up being awesome, but I'm certainly not going to buy one on launch.

At $100 its still a fair price for a netflix box at the worst case. Its better than what microsoft charges for one.
