I may be wrong about this but doesn't the Tegra3 have an on-die SataII Controller? Is there any hardware hacker that can figure out how to access that?

You are correct sir. But I wouldn't be surprised if it would require a new kernel like for overclocking.

I doubt the pins for it (and support hardware) have been implemented in the Ouya PCB, which is a shame but understandable. Something for Ouya 2

However I'm still hoping a hardware hacker can figure something out. Because It'd be great to be able to drop in a 500GB-1TB SATA Drive (of course in a modified case)

If you have a PC on all the time, a NAS or a modern router with USB port, how about a network share? My router supports USB drives and presents them as a NAS to any connected device. If Ouya does not support network shares out of the box, Android itself is easy enough to hack. 100Mb/s ethernet is likely faster than some SD cards Android phones use :p

Network share isn't going to help with app/game storage, just gout mine the 25th and already under 1GB of space left. It'd be nice if it did considering I have 6TB of space available on my NAS
