Anyone here have a 360? Does the interface still look like this?

No? Well the Ouya's interface isn't set in stone either.

I am pretty sure my xbox looked like that the last time I powered it up

I agree with Gamester, at $99 its dirt cheap (or knowing the UK it will probably be >= 100 - we NEVER get prices breaks here) . I am sure the interface will get better too - I just hope that happens before it potentially falters.

I've been thinking the exact same thing!
What usually happens is that we end up paying the same amount, except that we pay it in pounds not dollars - and somehow, the difference is always very slightly less than the amount it would cost to get the item shipped from abroad.

Would be nice if The Conduit HD was released on the Ouya, as it's already optimized for Tegra devices.

You're supposed to be able to hack it anyways. So I'm sure someone will get it working on the Ouya.

Is the new console reliable anyway? Maybe it is not the next best thing and it will disappoint us all?

It's a $99 console. Don't expect it to outperform a $250 PS3. It's still better value than a $20 plug n play game.

Here are a few games enhanced for Tegra 3 (the same chip as in Ouya) which gives an idea of what it's capable of. I don't think it looks worse than some early 360 and PS3 games.



(YouTube doesn't really like the fast motion in this game so it's a bit smeared compared to how the game actually looks)

I got my Ouya today. Was supposed to get it in April, but moving on...

Went through the setup, looked through the games, downloaded a few... no real problems to speak of. I couldn't seem to find a way to view your current downloads/status though. I didn't find any issues with the hardware. It's all going to come down to individual software. A few of the games had some issues, a 3D racing game had option text that was outside the screen.

I can't say in any way whether this console will still be supported a year from now, or whether it will find any degree of mainstream success, but for $99, it's definitely worth it if you want to get your games on a tv console. I'd love to play Tops or Jamie's revenge on it...

A post about my game is here:

Guess what? The UK retail price of the OUYA is 99.99, so the console whose main selling point is that it only costs $99, actually costs $152, plus another $60 for a second controller (only 20 shy of what you'd pay for an xbox360 or ps3 with a second controller).
What a surprise...

Incidentally, shouldn't kickstarter have some rules against this sort of thing?
What's to stop me saying I'm going to create a flying car that will only cost 100 - and then decide that actually only residents of the Central African Republic will get it for that price, and everyone else has to pay 10 million?

Interesting. That game looked like it ran pretty good actually. Was there just one layer?

My game is running very choppy. It has several layers. I've got Color Reduction enabled, Smooth resizing off, and am running Open GL 1.1 (2.0 was terribly slow). I'll be trying some more optimization techniques tomorrow, but there are some catastrophic issues that will only be fixed through future builds of the exporter, such as everything crashing when it jumps to another frame, and some weird things like the Ouya controller working perfectly with standard Joystick Left/Right events, but not responding at all to Up/Down events.
