Ouya

OUYA, a new record in Kickstarter’s story !

Ouya, the idea of an Android-based gaming console is pretty hard to ignore these last days! Just a few hours (12hours) after the company launched its Kickstarter campaign, the financement of the initial $950,000 asked was completed. By the time you read this, more than 37,000 people will have pledged over $4, 8 million on Kickstarter to help finance Ouya. This is a records in Kickstarter’s story!

Ouya received therefore an overwhelming response from the gaming community. But what is OUYA exactly? And what will it bring?

Ouya is open-source gaming console running on a modified version of Android 4.0, based on a NVIDIA’s capable Tegra 3 quadcore processor, and with a list of hack-friendly credentials. Thought for the games, it will come with a controller including the traditional buttons and thumbsticks, but also a touchpad, for the touch experience.

As its competitor, the GP2X, a linux based game console, it will be sold with a SDK to encourage each user developping his own game. The huge difference is the business model: the “free to play“. All distributed games have to be “free”! Of course it will concern most of the freemium, but players will be able to make in-app purchase, subscribe, download….

The next generation of home gaming consoles will be available next year for an really affordable price of $99 and a lot of gamers are legitimately afraid that this new system will only serve as a home for the kinds of games .
