@erhard: going by the number of shitty android consoles currently available or about to become available a whole mess of people. Those other companies won't have the stradivarius of game controllers as a draw so they're obviously bound to fail even worse.
Just because people produce this crap doesn't mean that people want/need this crap.
That's one of the main problems on this planet: People building shit nobody needs and nobody asked for to be build.
All those "Android console"makers believe they will be the next big thing right after "mobile gaming", just like all those companies releasing MMO's following the success of World of Warcraft. But they will end up just like the countless of MMO's: Nobody will buy it, nobody will know it.
I wonder if the Ouya can be turned into a Steam-streaming machine. If so, it can be a suitable option for those interested in having a low-profile machine on their living rooms, for example.
While it's theoretically possible, i seriously doubt it..
The Ouya is using an ARM processor, those are fundamentally different in their architecture compared to x86 CPU's like the ones used in modern consoles/PC's. Performance wise it could probably work, afaik even OnLive has Android/iOS apps for streaming, but it would require Valve to rewrite SteamOS so it's compatible with the ARM architecture.
