Maybe if this games thing doesn't work out Ouya might possibly think of being a video streaming box. I'm more excited for the capabilities it has with media streaming over games.
Their revenue model depends entirely on taking a cut of sales from the store. At best, they are breaking even on the console. If they cut the controller (a piece of garbage by all accounts, that is also costing them a fortune), they can bring the price down, but then what exactly will they do with the 60k
suckers backers who they sold this thing to as a game console?
Remember that they got $8m more in venture capital. They are dedicated to this thing, and it is going to go down in flames (perhaps literally).
So, bets on these tools being able to make their yearly console updates?
I'm betting against.
Oh man I forgot all about that part. Pissing millions of dollars up the wall is nothing really spectacular in the game industry, its the godawful rhetoric and hubris that is killing me - "bringing games back to the TV", "the Stradivarius of controllers", "taking on the big three", "free the games", good lord just go bankrupt already. I'd rather have monopolies than this pandering horseshit.
