Topic: OUYA - independent games console even xleox can get behind
Thought this would be of interest to even people who don't play video games.
The console costs $99 and at least some aspect of every game has to be free, like say a free demo that you can pay to unlock the full content of.
Every single OUYA is a development kit and comes with the SDK. No licenses are required and its built on Android 4.0 so there are already plenty of people who know how to program for it. Anyone can make and publish a game on it, no licensing, retail or publishing fees.
It's also being encouraged for hackers to try and see what else the console can do, hacking it will not void the warranty, so essentially it's opening it up to the entire community to see what can be done with the hardware.
Interestingly it's raised $3.1 million of its $950k goal with 28 days to go.
What do you punks reckon? I'm sold on the idea already.
