    Default Ouya: A New Console For Under $100



    A new startup is looking to battle Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo in the living room with a brand-new console with an inexpensive price point.

    Ouya, built on a custom-based Android operating system targeted to launch early next year, is open to any developer looking to publish a game. The developers also set pricing; the one catch is that every game must have a free portion available, whether through a demo or free-to-play model. The console also supports other Android apps, such as TwitchTV, which comes included.

    Though some private funding has been secured already, the company has set up a Kickstarter page asking for an additional $950,000. You can visit Ouya's page right here.

    So far, no games have been confirmed, but a number of notable developers are already praising the device, such as Mojang, the developer behind Minecraft, Brian Fargo of inXile Entertainment, and Jenova Chen of thatgamecompany.

    Below are the current hardware specs.

    For an ARM processor, 1GB RAM is enough...even if it is quad core.

    Also, metro is strong in the design lol.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    Nope this isn't even a financially viable platform. They are advertising its hackability, what else comes with hacks? Cracks No devs, big or small, want their games pirated. And that's exactly what's going to happen if this truly is a open source console.

    Unless there's a secure platform pushed by the big guns like MS/Sony/Nintendo, don't expect indie devs to focus on such platforms. They have Steam and iOS for now anyway

    i thought indie would have bigger space as their game are new & innovative,as you have to make some part of the game free they would have bigger chance.
    as you can see their won't be big budget game for these,indie can capture this one.just my thought.
    and ofcourse time will tell my friend let's see,don't know anything to argue yet

    - - - Updated - - -

    may be i'm over excited about it,what do you think,will it be a short lived console?

    Great concept. The only way Ouya can succeed, is by following the footsteps of the free to play mmo concept.

    Some part of the game free...what about the rest of the part? Completely open console -> games will get pirated just like WoW.

    And there is a COMPLETELY open platform already...it is called PC.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    yah true, i think if it was portable then probably it would have a chance.

    Ouya's Kickstarter has been succesfully funded and is at more than $1.2 million pledged as of 3:20 p.m. PDT, less than a day after its launch. A Kickstarter representative said the project was the fastest ever to reach $1 million, and the only other Kickstarter to surpass the figure in its first 24 hours was the Double Fine Adventure.
    Looks like they are doing well enough,clever guyz.
    the advantage of pledge was:
    Those who pledge $10 or more to the Ouya Kickstarter campaign will be able to reserve a username for the console prior to launch. For $25 or more, backers will be able to reserve a username and have an emblem emblazoned next to their tag. For $90 or more, gamers will receive everything already mentioned, as well as a Ouya console (plus extra for shipping), and a controller (plus $30 for a second controller).
    Backers of $225 or more will receive a Ouya console, two controllers with their username permanently etched in, and all perks mentioned above. Those who pledge $699 or more--aimed at developers--will score a first-run Ouya console, early software development kit access, two controllers, and promotional assistance for their games for 12 months.
    Users who back the Ouya campaign at $1,337 or more will receive the Elite Developer Special promotion. This offer grants users everything mentioned above, as well as a direct email contact to Ouya developers, and an invitation to the Ouya launch party in Los Angeles.
    some more info about the console
    Ouya will plug into television sets gamers already own, and will ship with a custom controller (pictured above) sometime by March 2013. Any developer can create games for the system, which will support high-definition output via its Tegra3 chipset. It has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal flash storage, and boasts WiFi and Bluetooth support.
    All games for the Ouya will be free-to-play initially, though developers will be allowed to offer a paid version of their titles as well as in-game items for sale. According to the console's announcement release, it will play games that run the gamut of indie to AAA, including "mainstream titles." Additionally, the Ouya will support Android apps, and will launch with live-streaming service TwitchTV.
    The Ouya is also entirely hackable. According to its creators, gamers who root the system--a process described as "easy"--will not void their warranty. Additionally, for those looking to hack the hardware itself, the console opens with a screwdriver, and has USB ports for custom-made peripherals.
    The Ouya console has already drawn support from a range of well-known developers, including ThatGameCompany's Jenova Chen, original Xbox designer Ed Fries, inXile Entertainment founder Brian Fargo, and Minecraft creator Mojang.
    Ouya the company was founded by Julie Uhrman, who had previously worked at GameFly and Vivendi Universal. The Ouya game console was designed by Yves Behar, a design entrepreneur who founded design and branding firm Fuseproject in 1999, and is current chief operating officer at consumer electronics firm Jawbone

    Unhappy

    This console has really created some big hype all over & collected more then $3mil long ago. so is this hype justified?
    it really needs some reality check:
    There is a reason that the press around the newly-announced OUYA game console is based almost exclusively around the amount of money being raised by the product’s Kickstarter, and that reason is simple: There is very little else to report on. There is almost no information about the state of production hardware, and in fact nearly everything about the system seems to be in flux. The Kickstarter page contradicts itself on some points, and many of the images and statements seem to be intentionally misleading.
    While there are many aspects of the OUYA game console that are attractive, there are many more reasons to be skeptical about what’s being offered.

    The system doesn’t actually exist, at least not yet

    The Kickstarter page states there is a single working prototype of the hardware. Everything else, from the digital distribution platform that will sell the games to the internal components that will make up the final product are in the first stages of production. That’s an uncomfortable reality for a product that’s supposed to hit the market by March of next year.
    “We have a functional prototype, and we have almost completed our industrial design (the shape and materials of the product you see here),” the Kickstarter page states. “We know the hardware specifications, and are working with electrical and mechanical engineers to test the performance of the hardware. We have begun work on the user interface and software. We’ll pull all these pieces together and test how they fit, while we finalize the product.” There isn’t a finished design for the external case, and work has only begun on the interface and the software that will power the hardware, not to mention the challenge of creating the online store that will sell and deliver the games.
    Creating a robust, stable platform to offer for-pay game downloads is a complicated undertaking, and according to the Kickstarter page work has only just begun on that aspect of the project. The specifications seem to be in place, but testing can be a long and tricky process, even with known components. There are only eight months between now and the stated ship date of March 2013. That would be an aggressive timeline if we were talking about Microsoft or Valve, much less an untested startup. I asked specifically about the ambition of this product, and my misgivings about the goal of a March launch. “We continue to march toward that date,” I was told via email. No further details were given.
    There are more basic problems, such as the lack of a final controller design. The video on the Kickstarter page shows a few mockups and models, but only one side of what looks to be a production controller has been shown to the public. I asked about this as well. “That design is not final,” I was told. “We are in a prototype phase and exploring several options.” That’s why they can’t show a finished controller; there isn’t one. No one knows what it will be, or how it will look. When a product makes such a big deal out of the fact it uses a standard controller to interact with games on the television, it’s unsettling to have so few details about how that controller will look, much less operate.


    The one side of the mock-up controller they're willing to show you

    It’s likewise important to note that the company refuses to confirm the existence of a single game that will run on the OUYA hardware. I asked if they could confirm a single game for the platform. “Not at this time,” I was told. “We are obviously talking to developers behind the scenes but feel that its too early to announce.”
    But wait, isn’t Minecraft a game that will run on the OUYA? “Mojang has committed that Minecraft (and their other games) will be on OUYA,” the Kickstarter page stated. The next sentence, however, makes it very clear that there is not the case: “But only if we prove that we can make a great product (that’s our job) AND enough people want their games (that’s your job). Show them with your numbers that you want Minecraft on OUYA!” In other words, there is no commitment being made, and no reason to believe the game will ever come to the platform. If the console sells well and consumers seem to be interested in the product, Mojang may offer its games on the platform. That’s a very big “if.”
    The promotional video states outright that Minecraft is coming to the system, which is, at best, misleading. I’ve contacted Mojang for clarification, and will update the story with any comment.
    Another problem is the fact the OUYA does little except further fragment the Android market, although I was told that’s not an issue. “There will be only one chipset for OUYA and a totally standard one at that,” I was told. “This is the best way to develop Android for TV. We will work hard to make it as standard as possible.” I’m going to be blunt: That’s a ridiculous answer, and it’s akin to claiming the Kindle Fire doesn’t count as market fragmentation as long as you only develop for the Kindle Fire.
    The OUYA will use a controller when most Android games are designed for the touch screens of phones or tablets, which is a problem. Games are either going to have to be designed from the ground up for the OUYA, or ported from other Android devices that rely on touch screen controls. Unless the hardware sells a few million units very quickly, neither option is going to be attractive to smaller, or even AAA, developers.


    The definition of free-to-play given on the Kickstarter site is so broad that as long as it has a demo, it's considered free-to-play.

    It’s selling a dream, not a solution
    “I’m skeptical of why people are so excited about OUYA,” Antichamber developer Alexander Bruce said. “If you want to develop a game for consoles with less gatekeeping than PSN or XBLA, I’m pretty sure that’s what XBLIG was supposed to be for, but people aren’t exactly going crazy over selling their games there. If openness is your main concern, I’m not sure what is stopping you from targeting the PC and selling games directly through your website. I personally believe that until you’ve got a high quality game on your hands, where you sell it or which gatekeepers you have to get past aren’t your biggest problems.”
    I spoke with Robert Boyd, who has released retro-styled RPGs on both the PC and the Xbox Live Indie Channel, and he has harsh words for the system. He’s the sort of developer OUYA is trying to attract, but he doesn’t buy any of the system’s strengths. (Disclosure: Zeboyd Games developed On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, which is a Penny Arcade title)
    “My main problem with the OUYA is that it’s selling a dream: ‘The Console for Indie Developers,’” he explained. “It’s primary selling points are that it’s cheap and developers can make games for it without buying expensive development kits. However, you can already get all that with a cheap PC and unlike the OUYA, the install base for the PC is already massive.”
    He also rejects the idea that an “open platform” is the secret to independent success. “The reality is harsh; we’ve seen what happens with open platforms. Look at Xbox Live Indie Games, where very few developers were able to make a living off of it and now the platform is dominated by knock-offs of popular games and wannabe Japanese softcore porn,” he said. “The Apple App Store has been more successful than XBLIG, but even there, you either get in the top 10 and make a fortune or you ‘die in obscurity.’ And the Android is even more open than Apple’s and yet how many success stories do you hear for Android developers? Not many.” Keep in mind all of these platforms have an installed base many times that of the OUYA.
    “It’s hard enough to make a living as an indie developer on a popular platform like Steam. Even on popular platforms, there are many games, both indie and otherwise, that fail to sell enough to support the developer. However, trying to make a living on a niche console like the OUYA feels like an even bigger gamble,” he continued.
    OUYA is actually making these problems worse with its marketing. “Finally, the creators of OUYA are actively encouraging both free-to-play, all games must be ‘free-to-play’ although their definition is very loose and includes demos and purchase for full version, and hacking. Trying to get a significant portion of an audience like that to actually pay money for a game and not just spend all their time on free emulators for old arcade and video game systems could prove challenging indeed.”
    The OUYA console will likely be the Android platform with the lowest installed base, and it will require the most work to get games looking good and playing well compared to the Android handsets and tablets that make up the majority of the market. Why retool your existing Android games to use a controller and look good on your television when you’re targeting an untested platform? Piracy will also be a major concern, due to the fact that rooting the device will be made as simple as possible. Developers already wrestle with pirated and cloned games in the Android ecosystem, and the OUYA prides itself in being open and hackable, both in terms of software and hardware. That’s attractive in some ways, but it also makes it very easy for piracy and other shady activities to thrive.
    So not only is there no finished hardware, no service at the moment, no controller, and no games—although we’re being asked to take their word that they can create each of those things in eight months—but focusing development costs on an incredibly risky platform with a small installed base and features that make piracy all but given makes no sense for most developers who release games you’d like to play. It’s an environment that not makes little sense for commercial development, in many ways it’s actively hostile to people hoping to create games for it.
    The OUYA may find a home for people interested in hacking, piracy, and fun homebrew projects, but most details about the project point to an ecosystem that, if launched, will make very little sense to support commercially.

    The hype doesn’t match the reality

    The entire system hangs on the ability that you want to play ported Android games on a cheap system, with an unseen controller, on a television screen. While many developers are willing to provide quotes about how great the OUYA could be, so far no one is willing to put their money where their mouth is and announce projects for the hardware. No one involved in the project has experience launching products even close to the complexity of the OUYA, in terms of either gaming hardware, software, and services.
    At least, we don’t think so. “There are plenty of other people involved, but some of them would get fired if we tell you who they are,” the Kickstarter page stated. That doesn’t inspire confidence, and if any of these individuals works at a company that owns their extra-curricular output, which is a sadly common state of affairs, the legal mess could become quite deep.
    It will be great if the OUYA is a high quality system that finds success, despite the fact it’s worth throwing some cold water on the hype. The more homes developers can find for their games, the better for everyone. Still, the challenges the system faces and the fact the OUYA doesn’t have a single game to promote should make you cautious, not excited. There is nothing wrong with taking a step back from the hype and waiting until the system is released commercially and has a robust catalog of games to enjoy. Until then? Caveat emptor.

    The Android console Ouya has signed a deal with cloud gaming service OnLive, meaning hundreds of games from over 80 publishers will be available when the console is eventually released next March.

    UK boss of OnLive Bruce Grove said, "When OnLive first heard about OUYA, we were excited to see console gaming becoming more available and open. Like OUYA, we came to gaming with a new vision for making top-quality gaming accessible to more people, and we continue to look for ways to expand on that vision.
    "OUYA is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever. In OnLive's case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand."



    The Kickstarter to fund the Ouya console opened last month, with an ambitious target of $950,000. It quickly smashed that record, and with just over 12 days to go, the amount pledged currently stands at $5,551,703.
    New renders of the Ouya console and the controller were also released, with the following caveat: "Please note that the design is still in progress--but we couldn’t hold out any longer. We needed you to know that the controller has two handles. You can hold it in both hands.
    "P.S. We're still deciding on the buttons. For now, we've stuck with the colored circles as placeholders. But don't fret, we won't leave out colorblind gamers."

    Default Final Fantasy III Launching on Ouya

    Square Enix has announced it will release Final Fantasy III as a launch title for the Ouya console in March 2013.

    In a statement translated by Square Portal, the company promised that they will also be providing more content in the future.
    Final Fantasy III originally released on the NES back in 1990 and became the first Final Fantasy title to sell over a million copies, but has since had a 2006 remake for the DS. It seems this is the version Ouya owners will be getting as this was ported for Android devices last month, which is the operating system that the upcoming console will use.
    We recently reported how Ouya signed a deal with cloud gaming service OnLive, meaning hundreds of games from over 80 publishers will be available when the console is eventually released next March. Square Enix is the first major third-party publisher to back the console, and it'll be interesting to see if others now follow suit.
    Ouya's Kickstarter campaign hasn't ended yet either; with 8 days still to go, the project has currently amassed $5.8 million, completely shattering its original $950,000 target.

    New Color console has revealed

    Until now, we have been all about games and gaming, but--as many of you have noted--OUYA can go far beyond that. Because it’s based on Android, it can support anything built on Android--the sky is the limit. It’s with that dramatic preamble that we say this:
    We’re bringing the party back to the family room! OUYA is partnering with VEVO
    – the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform.
    Not only will VEVO and OUYA bring high definition music video programming back to the TV -- we’re turning control over to you. Access music videos from your favorite artists like JAY Z, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber, Shakira, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Big K.R.I.T., Florence + The Machine, John Mayer and P!nk when you want them and where you want them: on your big, shiny television!
    For OUYA, this means entertainment beyond gaming. Browse through the most-viewed music videos on the web, explore full video catalogs of top-selling artists, or venture into the realm of new staff picks, live concerts and original music programming. Getting ready to do some level grinding? Watch one of your favorite videos to get in the mood.
    But enough from us, here’s the full scoop from VEVO:
    At VEVO, our mission is to bring high quality music experiences to users wherever and whenever. We have always strived to embrace new platforms that developers, creative communities and consumers are excited about. OUYA is just that—it’s one of the most exciting new entertainment platforms we’ve seen and we think it’s a natural fit for VEVO’s premium music videos and original music programming.
    This is why I am thrilled to tell you today that VEVO is committed to launch with OUYA when it comes to market in March 2013. Through this partnership, we will bring our rich catalogue of over 50,000 high definition music videos and new, original programming from more than 11,000 artists to OUYA’s groundbreaking new gaming console. We support and share OUYA’s vision that the future lies in being open and accessible for users looking for high quality entertainment experiences.
    Our partnership with OUYA is grounded in our tireless effort to bring VEVO to every connected living room and home and we will continue to deliver our premium music video programming to the rest of our platform consisting of VEVO.com, mobile & tablet apps (including Android, iOS, Windows Phone), connected TVs like Xbox and partner sites such as AOL, CBS, Facebook, Viacom Media Networks, Yahoo! Music and YouTube.
    Stay tuned for more news on our partnership with OUYA – and what it will look like for consumers - as we get closer to launch. We hope you are as excited as we are!
    -Michael Cerda, SVP of Product and Technology, VEVO
    We’re excited to bring the #1 music video platform to OUYA! Let’s start a world-wide dance party.
    -------
    In addition to the VEVO news - we have something else to share with you as we count down to next Wednesday:
    Our Kickstarter crew is unique. You guys have been here since the beginning and we wanted to honor you by acknowledging one of your most frequent requests: a special limited edition console and controller available only during our last week of Kickstarter.
    Behold the limited edition OUYA and controller! Yves Behar personally selected the color for this special console and controller, and it will only be available NOW, through the end of Kickstarter campaign. (Scroll down to view.)
    To collect one of these rare drops, stretch your donation to $140--the additional cost will cover the small production run.
    Also note, the buttons now officially read “O-U-Y-A”! (<--we heard you!)
    -Julie
