    that quote is from the same article. Looks like it wont be competing. Also competing with Xbox,PS3 and Wii is not a good thing to do right now because within the next year(and a few months) I think we will have a new system from each of the three.

    Because no one cares about the Wii and saying it will compete with the Wii is pointless because my iPhone is more powerful than the Wii?

    This is why the Wii isn't part of the conversation bruther.

    How many times has somebody said, "What about the Wii?" when a game or dlc comes out dude?

    People use to say that all the time in Rock Band bruther because something released on sony and microsoft that didn't get released on the wii bruther.

    Same with games bruther. How many games are delayed on the Wii bruther? On Playstation and Microsoft they come out on the schedule release date bruther. But the Wii dude gets a release date that 3 months and sometimes 4 months after it comes out on the PS3 and Xbox dude. Gaming companies aren't showing a strong support to the wii like the do for sony and microsoft dude.

    Just my thoughts dude but I'm sure someone will argue this bruther

    I see it more as the Wii sold like hot cakes to a demographic outside of gamers. As for most gamers that own a Wii, chances are they also own an XBox and/or a PS3 and they merely own a Wii for the Nintendo exclusive titles.

    How is that possible? I usually own the console that loses the console wars for each generation and this generation's console that I have is a PS3.

    Ouya is less important in terms of its hardware and more important in terms of the ecosystem they hope to develop through it. They're hoping to create a standardized platform for indie developers, although I think that Tegra 3 is still too low of hardware specs to really be competitive (guess they've gotten some good pricing from Nvidia to take that now rather than wait for OMAP6, Exynos 5, the second generation of Snapdragon S4, or even Tegra 4, all of which are likely to be considerably more powerful mobile SoCs). If anything, the hardware as it exists may hold back more indie devs than anything.

    I won't.
    I own all 3 consoles and I feel the Wii is by far the best.

    Gotta give you credit for doubling down on crazy, Cipher. Were it not for the motion control technology (which is a bit inconsistent but Nintendo has done pretty well with it, all things considered) and Nintendo's long-standing intellectual property, I'd call the Wii a halfway-decent "me too" competitor to the PS2. :)

    and from all the topics i've seen you make here. you read the headline, then post it here.

    try reading the full article first next time ;)

    (also, headlines are made to make someone interested in it. so don't look all surprised when they're 1000000x more spectacular then the actual article)

    In all fairness, Ouya plans to have a floating hardware spec, which means you'll likely see more powerful Ouya (or Ouya-compatible) devices all the time. Considering where mobile SoCs are going, you likely will see something based on the Ouya spec that is, performance-wise, a rival to the Xbox 360 or PS3 within the next year or maybe two.

    Ehhhhhh, hardware strength isn't something I'm concerned with.
    I just want a machine that'll be easy to make games for, and higher specs means more money pumped into projects to make them "look pretty".

    The Ouya seems like it'll be great to make games for, and with the lower barrier of entry more games can enter the market. I, however, am very very cynical towards kickstarter, and right now my feelings is that it'll never come out. I will gladly eat my words and buy it if it does.

    they were actually already going to bring it out before kickstarter. they went to kickstarter for extra money to make it even better. but it's definitely coming.

    In all reality, the ability to make games more easily and inexpensively is something more to do with development tools, in which case Microsoft is pretty far out in front, with Sony a ways behind and Nintendo even further back.

    Then again, Nintendo allows developers to make games "cheaply" because the hardware specs for their systems are so low. (The 3DS is only slightly more powerful of hardware than the now-ancient PSP, for instance.)

    Unfortunately, Nintendo has unusual gimmicks, for the lack of a better word, to make development less than straight forward.

    Which is why the Ouya looks to be promising, but I won't hold my breath.

    I actually hadn't heard of this... thing until a month or so after it was announced.

    It's a cheap console, and it should cater well to casual gamers, but I seriously doubt that this will even stand a chance to Xbox or Playstation.

    I mean, just look at it. It's phone games on your TV. It's a fad, and what happens to fads? They die out and get replaced with new fads. Before this console has had a proper lifespan people will move on to the next fad, whether it be extreme nutshots or the next shooter, Call of Halo: Modern Gears.

    You do know that you have been playing with 6+year old tech right? Saying it will rival 360 specs these days means nothing.

    It's certainly cheap enough to succeed. However no console can get anywhere without a killer app, and I really don't see why any developer, big or small, would have an incentive to make an Ouya exclusive game when there are already so many established channels to release games through.
