I'm looking forward to receive mine. I only decided to order one for the sake of having it, so I'm keeping low expectations. Should be interesting however.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
Me to seeing something small in every way but cool come together is exceptionally nice.
Anytime the hardware community comes together and more than 7x the asking price for a technology backing it shows exactly how eager people are for that certain product.
If the first model is functional and reliable with a hint of innovation and inexpensive, the Ouya company would have just created a wonderful lunch platform for a much more unique and powerful device for its 2nd Generation. 57000 people are betting on Ouya.
I'm one of Ouya's backers - I didn't pledge enough to actually get the console, and to be honest I may not even buy one simply because I'm not a console gamer and already use an HTPC. Maybe if my little one is old enough to use it "properly" I may pick one up at a later date.
However, the small footprint and wealth of features make it very desirable. With the right marketing (although you could argue that the Kickstarter campaign is excellent marketing in itself) I can see Ouya doing exceptionally well.. and good luck to them! The console space needs a new player.
I love the idea. This could potentially send a very strong message to the big 3. Make the entry for hobbyists to professional developers a lot less difficult!
