I bought my OUYA shortly after release. So far, it's kind of "janky" (quoted from Brad Nicholson). It's certainly not as polished as your PS3 or 360, and definitely won't be able to replace them. The up-sides to buying an OUYA are: emulation, modding/hacking it, and the occasional decent game. Side-loading Android apps isn't hard to do using the browser included with the OUYA. I've side-loaded apps like Netflix, Spotify, the Amazon Appstore, and some others. Most of these don't work very naturally, and require you to use the touchpad on the controller. Emulation works great up to the Nintendo 64, although I haven't tried anything on the PSX yet. Upcoming games like Soul Fjord leave me with hope that games won't suck in the foreseeable future. Phil Fish has said that FEZ will be coming to OUYA. So maybe in 6 months it will be worth a purchase. They have also mentioned OUYA will be re-iterated upon each year similarly to the iPhone.

Well, I just bought one yesterday on the Internet for $90 brand new unopened. Not sure it was a great purchase but hopefully it'll get better. I'll have fun with it for awhile regardless. I always have people eager to buy my 2nds in the wings. Gonna try the dual shock & see if I can get that to work with it. It could be a good deal, we'll see.

I would have preferred if they allowed us to buy/upgrade the processor every year.. rather than release a new ouya every year as its been confirmed by the CEO.

There are like 5 OUYA threads currently.
Can mods merge them into one ?

Yeah, it would be nice to allow us to upgrade our OUYAs, but, it still is only $99.

Yeah, I searched for OUYA threads and didn't find a collective one for OUYA discussion, so I made one myself.

You guys can have mine. I'm sure it's rotting away in the furthest corner of my apartment.

Best paperweight I ever purchased.

In other news, a Zelda-like adventure game called Ittle Dew is coming out soon, after it gains approval.
