I saw an Ouya commercial this week on Comedy Central. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Free to try games, only $100! Ouya!
I remember some time last year a Gamestop display with a tower of Ouyas and only 3 missing. The employee said don't buy it the 3 that were purchased were brought back claiming defective and sent back to the company and the rest that are unsold will just get shipped back in a few weeks.
This is almost the commercial that I saw >>
Only there was no filter over the people.
Its starting to remind me of the knock off consoles.
Haven't these been on sale for ages? My limited understanding is that they're basically Android games except you pay £100 for the console. Why wouldn't I just stick with my HTC One, ePSXe and one of those Bluetooth game controllers?
I was briefly intrigued by the Ouya, but then I realized between my PC, my Wii, my 360, my phone, and my 3DS, dear God I have a lot of options and there really aren't any gaps that Ouya fills. Shit, after hooking my PC up to my widescreen TV, I realized Steam pretty much covered anything my current consoles were lacking in when it comes to TV gaming. Good lord, I may have too many options, as I have far too many games that don't get played. I just need to get a wireless gamepad for my PC and I'll be pretty much set for any gaming situation I could imagine.
Aliotroph? said: Of course, since just about anybody can publish games on it, you'll also get the usual sea of crap and copyright infringement.
People are really fucking stupid. Many of the responses for the game which uses the quake engine, graphics, and is actually being sold are just "WOW THIS REMINDS ME OF QUAKE I LOVE OLD FPS GAMES! BUYING!"
Several early Ouya games were ports of Android games, and they were changed to work with the controler, and there was no problem. Since then a large number of games have been made for Ouya and are made to work with the controler from the start.
$100,000 per day? that is INHUMAN! I do not even get that much in a year. such people are dangerous to society.. they have to be removed.
Supposedly, there's a game Supercell that makes 2.4 million per day. Actually, that's not the only game. There was an article on another game that made $2.4 million a day *cough* microtransactions, but I can't find it with all the Supercell talk. Simpsons online game made $23 million in 3 months and has now hit $100 million. Microtransactions, they just fucking work.
There was an episode of millionaire matchmaker with an App millionaire straight from Africa. So I did a search on him, he doesn't program, he just hires programmers to make his company millions. Kind of like the original Enix company. The investor knew nothing about programming, so he held a contest and hired the winner to make Dragon Warrior.
