Project is fully funded on kickstarter, they asked for 950.000$ and they got 5 million with still 21 days left!
It will be 99 dollars, wich is kinda cheap, and will even offer acces to Twitch.tv if you wanna watch your starcraft tournaments or whatever on TV.



Here is the page for it:http://www.kickstart...eo-game-console
Specs are:
  • Tegra3 quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB of internal flash storage
  • HDMI connection to the TV, with support for up to 1080p HD
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth LE 4.0
  • USB 2.0 (one)
  • Wireless controller with standard controls (two analog sticks, d-pad, eight action buttons, a system button), a touchpad
  • Android 4.0

Can't really make a verdict over all because all we've actually seen in an Xbox 360 style dashboard and controller but with a PS3 controller layout. The idea of it being cheap is a good one but will it be able to optimise it's setup? A lot of consoles don't make full use of what they're packing.

Then turn to the line-up? What is the OUYA's line-up going to be? We can look at the 3DS for this because that had terrible launch line-up, but simply showing Android games will not be any better because you'd probably have them anyway on an Android phone.

Well the idea behind it is to promote more indie games, so everyone with some skill could make a game for that thing.
