Well, that was quick. Just hours after going on sale in the U.S., Canada and the UK, the OUYA gaming console was already sold out Tuesday morning on Amazon, though other retailers still had it in stock.

Amazon, which was selling the device for $99, told customers that the item was temporarily out of stock. However, as of Tuesday morning, Target and Best Buy were still carrying OUYA. GameStop noted that the item was "currently unavailable."

This was the little box gaming console right?

Has there been a development kit released for it? Or does it just use the dev kits for the phones and tablets?

Frick changed the picture...yeah this is what I thought it was. I've always wanted to try my hand at making a phone game...I might be more interested in this though. A controller will make it more interesting.

It's not that surprising. It was one of the most successful Kickstarter projects in history and has a ton of buzz behind it.

This was taken right off of Amazon and I thought it was worth the read! A decent, forgiving and honest review. smile.gif

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: OUYA Console (Console)
I'm a kickstarter backer, and I've had the console for a couple weeks. I don't agree with the reviews that claim the Ouya is the worst piece of hardware released, but I also don't think it's amazing either.

I think the hardware is decent for a $99 console. It's not going to be able to handle any AAA games (unless you use onlive), but it can handle some decent looking games. The controller is pretty comfortable, but not as polished as a AAA console controller like the ones for the XBOX 360 and PS3. The triggers and d-pad leave me wanting more, but they are functional. The rest of the buttons and joysticks have performed fine for me so far. The touchpad is okay, it might get better with updates. One plus for the controllers, they work great with other android devices.

The games/software leave a lot to be desired right now. There are a few gems. For example, Stalagflight is surprising addicting. But most of the current games are simple ports of android games that weren't designed for televisions. Sideloading apps works fine, but not everything runs very smoothly. Sideloaded netflix gives horrible picture quality for example. And some games that should run smoothly on the hardware are laggy.

The potential? Well there are indie games that don't need AAA quality graphics that could be ported to the Ouya, and there are a few games that are in development that look decent. It also will be a great media box if they can get netflix support. XBMC is currently in development, and works for streaming 1080p video over a home network. And of course, it can run emulators for older consoles.

All in all, if you are looking for a game system to play games on, skip this for now. Check back in a couple months when it has more games, and maybe it will get some indie exclusives that are worthwhile. If you like to tinker with android devices? It's a decent purchase at $99.

My buddy has one of these. It is a nice paper weight.

The few games that are around are generally buggy with minimal replay value. The controller was dead out of the box. A known defect. Luckily Ouya sent him a new controller.


Maybe if these units went on sale sooner, Ouya might have been able to attend E3 instead of just having a hot dog stand outside the event.



If you want an Android based device with out the capability of dialing out or needing a data plan.. this is the phone (err system) for you.

Lol @ people buying a Ouya.

I'm picking one of these up later today. I'm not expecting too much but it's always fun to try new consoles.

The console is the dev kit. One of the options on the main menu takes you to the dev tools. I think it's a neat concept and I might get one to play around with on my bedroom TV. At the very least, it should replace my Wii as my streaming device in there and do a better job of it.
