    They should up the RAM to 2GB and add a Tegra 4, then I will consider. 1GB of RAM for a machine dedicated to gaming... I dont get this mentality.

    The xbox 360 only had 512 MB. The point is, this could be (well, is) another whole console, where static hardware makes games run better on it...

    How can something be exclusive to Ouya? It'll be available on Android too.

    Which is a good thing.. Android will get more and better-quality games out of this.
     
  5. The Ouya store is going to be completely seperate from the Android Market.

    Real Racing 3 is legit for iOS, I would like to see it on Ouya.

    Is it not an Android app though? That's one checkbox to select and you can install on any device.

    I imagine you won't be able to access the Ouya store from any device other than an Ouya.

    We're talking about Android here. The device will be easily-rootable, allowing you to copy the apk to a non-Ouya device.
     
  10. Do not worry. Those *****s plan to release a new Ouya every year.

    Whenever this system become universal media player (better yet with sufficient useful utility apps), it will get the attention it deserve.

    I wish the existence of this console would also give a better opportunity for small developers to be successful.

    they need the most horse power so I Dont get what is wrong with that... as mobile graphics mature, you will see the demand for new GPUs.

    Many of the games on the Ouya should be available across the Android universe... But exclusive games are ones that are being developed to maximize performance on the Tegra platform, targeting a specific subset of hardware... One of the reasons gaming performance can be fairly amazing on such a little device - you leave out all the stuff required to support multiple hardware configurations (which every generic Android game requires).

    Translation: the games may work on other platforms (if you can get them there), they may not, you probably won't know till people start trying it :)

    So it'll be one of those THD-only titles. :p
