Every once in a while something comes along that can potentially change the way the industry thinks and operates. Could OUYA be that special console that shakes the entire industry?
This console is poised for a release date sometime in March. Looking to attract indie developers as well as big name companies it will run on an android operating system. The only question will be how much support will the console receive? Square Enix will be releasing Final Fantasy III, but will they release new games as well?
This is a big question; with a price point of $99, and being about the size of a Rubik’s cube it won’t compete with the big three in terms of power, but is that a bad thing? The console has been developed from the ground up with gamers in mind. From the controller to the interface, even using OnLive and Vevo, OUYA looks to push creativity as well as functionality.
But with the launch rapidly approaching, there isn’t much to show in terms of content. OUYA needs to prove that this console will not be just a simple box to play Android ports.
With that being said, this will be a very interesting console with loads of potential. The low price point could be appealing, but the thought of just another casual console could turn people away.
