Hi guys,

Just thought I would make my first post on here as I have just become the proud owner of an Ouya. I am big on retro gaming having owned just about every console since the Atari 2600. I recently finished a Hyperspin PC for my self, VERY hard work and not ideal for living room gaming! I only recently heard of the Ouya and was amazed to see the native emulators and how well they worked so I searched all over for one and finally found an almost new one at a local CEX shop. As soon as I got ot home it was stripped down, a Sega Mega Drive (Jpn) was modded and this is what I ended up with.....

I nearly used a Euro (PAL) model, I have loads of MD'S in a cupboard as I used to mod them and airbrush them. I'm also a Sega Collector. The Asian MD was the one I had as a kid so went with that one.

Cheers guys ;)

sennerz - That's a cool mod. Looks super clean. Would be awesome if you could add a usb adapter so the original controllers would work too. Not sure if anyone has tried it or not but would be cool if it worked. Definitely a nice mod and props on keeping it clean.

spinal - That is definitely a small unit to put the OUYA into. Definitely doable, just requires a decent amount of work. We are actually about to stuff an OUYA with a usb encoder into this Ms Pacman unit. Gonna keep the original controls functional too. Here's a few dry fit pics, http://imgur.com/a/e9Y3y Will make an actual post when finished.

sennerz - Sweet mod. Looks great. Love seeing how people mod their OUYA's to make them their own.

Thanks brdtt12 ;)

During the project, I had a couple of ideas for what you mentioned with regards to the controller ports. I decided on finding a compatible USB hub for inside the case, with two USB>MD adaptors with the MD ends mounted where the original ports were, so they look original. I've found a tiny 4 way usb hub that works fine, the USB>MD adaptors can be found on that 'famous auction site' but the thing that is holding me back is the fact that my USB Stick (which works perfectly) would also have to plug into the hub inside BUT I need to be able to access it to add more roms etc.

I decided to leave it as is for now and maybe do it when I feel I have got all the systems and roms that I want, I'm not far off.

If I do it I'll put some pics up.

Cheers
Andy

Mate, did you know that "Jap" can be viewed as offensive? In international circles, the term "Jpn(s)" is used.

Anyway, if you collect Megadrive stuff, you may want to order this from Amazon Japan, via the Sega shop (as you'll get a free T-shirt, too) :

Sorry about that, I've changed the original post. I hope I didn't offend anyone, obviously that wasn't my intention.

I'm certainly not offended. In the UK, it is perfectly acceptable, along with terms such as "oriental" (as "Asian" usually refers to those of an Indian, or related ethnicity in the UK), etc. In Japan, I even point it out to some locals, especially as they use the term "gaijin", which is similar in that it is used in a usually friendly matter, but due to its chequered past, can be used offensively or inferred as offensive.
