The holidays have arrived early for gamers as the PlayStation 4 is already on the market and the Xbox One is just around the corner but if it's Android gaming you’re into, fret not. Ouya has just unveiled a limited...

A friend of mine grabbed one of these early on, primarily to use as a streaming HTPC alternative. It works quite well for him, but still had some issues. He's really liking the new interface update they did, and looking forward to the USB storage update - throw an external USB hard drive on, and you add quite a bit of media playback potential.

Personally, I'd like to see them add USB optical disc and decoding support... An Ouya with a USB Blu-Ray drive attached would make for a very capable HTPC solution.

I havent heard anything about great games coming out on ouya, or any updates.

Techspot writers- perhaps a great article opportunity would be an article on all the games and updates and changes to ouya since its launch, as I am very curious.Just my 10 cents.

Since when does 8GB of flash storage cost $30, honestly, a 30% price hike for a mere 8GB of extra storage? What is this, the early 2000's? or better yet, who do you think you are, Apple?

Sell, it's supposed to be a limited edition so I don't think their charging strictly based on more storage.

Limited? Dam right... it barely functions. I got mine in May, and its sat at home with an inch think layer of dust on it. It just DOESNT perform at all at 1080p. Should have bought myself a small cheap gaming slate for about the same price.

"Yey... new coat of paint Ouya. great... wonderful... and stuff...........

I have to say the thing is getting better, I havn't gotten to use mine much since I don't have a tv atm, but when I go up to parents house and plug it in while I am doing laundry it gets better every time I plug it in. There's tons of exclusive games now, can't say how great they are since I stick to like 4 games, but its evolving and this company isn't going anywhere so I expect some cool things out of them.
