Submission + - Why Ouya isn't going to work->

thetechblock writes: "So there has been a lot of buzz on the Internet about a Kickstarter project called OUYA. For the uninitiated who have been living under a rock for the past week, OUYA is an open-source game console based on the Android operating system. It plugs into your TV and allows you to play games on your big screen (rather than on your phone or tablet screen, which has been the recent trend). And the overall mission is for this to be an open platform, unlike Xbox and PlayStation, so anyone can develop games for it (most independent developers can’t afford the fees required to publish their games on the big consoles). And one more thing: it only costs $99 if you donate to Kickstarter right now. Unsurprisingly, Ouya was the fastest project to ever hit $1 million in funding on Kickstarter, and it crossed the $4 million threshold in just a few days."
