    Thanks but no thanks. I'll gladly spend 59.99$ at steam summer/holiday sales for games I'll own forever, that can be installed/uninstalled/transferred to another computer on the same steam user account. :)

    800 games over 365 days = 2 games a day =no replayability or there's a replayability of a limited number of games and most available games are wasted.

    I think the concept behind Ouya is great, but the games just aren't good enough IMO. As mobile graphics and engines improve, I think Ouya and Android gaming consoles have a chance to succeed.

    The way for the Ouya to succeed in this market is to partner with legacy console makers and offer a platform to play those games, like an emulator.

    Well, it seems OUYA is in desperation mode.

    Extreme Desperation Mode!!

    How could you abuse the system an all-access-pass to 800+ titles? We either have access or we don't, simple as that. What rules could possibly be bent, which would add a risk element for disqualification?

    I think ouya already has an app NES emulator.
