Ouya Everywhere - use your hardware, play their games
Android videogame platform maker, Ouya, is looking at launching their service on devices other than their dedicated gaming console. Ouya Everywhere could be available soon, as Ouya may be announcing their first deal by the end of the month.
The folks over at Engadget have it on good authority that Ouya is planning to make their software and gaming services extend to other devices. There are not many details at this point, but our set-top boxes and smart TVs should be the first ones to get access. This should be no cause for alarm for those that look forward to Ouya’s annual hardware refresh cycle. Your next $99 console should be available right on schedule.
Ouya was extremely popular before users even had the unit in hand, breaking early Kickstarter records for pledged support. Some major videogame makers also joined in, promising to make titles that would operate on the Android powered unit. The console did not fail to deliver and users enjoyed their first Android games on the big screen with a controller in hand.
Some consider the platform to have stalled in the last year, which can be validated by the relatively small number of games available for the console. On the other hand, the 682+ games available are some of the best Android games available. If Ouya opens their platform to other devices, we expect that this should rekindle the gaming fire and entice more developers to make their games available.
