    OUYA Inc. were trying to follow the lean startup model, and what they released was an MVP. However, games consumers have been bred by decades of marketing to expect only the fully finished,...

    OUYA has suffered because it has had to build a fan base from zero, whilst fans of other consoles can all unite to pick on OUYA.

    It costs a lot more for bigger developers to port a game simply because of the way they are structured. It has to get signed off by various parts of management, marketing, legal, a dev team has to be...

    GameFAQs listing OUYA games?

    Years ago, I set up Google Alerts to email me any mention of Executive Star in websites listed on Google search. Cue getting emails every week or two about the latest job vacancy for "Talented...

    I suspect that the controllers don't cost OUYA that much to make, and that most of the $49 or whatever cost for a separate controller is markup. That means removing it from the bundle and selling...

    Other platforms like PS4 or Xbox One already do the whole walled garden / heavily curated thing. I don't think OUYA can compete with that, and the whole point of OUYA in the first place was to get...

    O&C was definitely the wrong game to release on OUYA. I don't know whether that was Gameloft's decision or whether they spoke to OUYA about which title might make a good fit first, and OUYA made the...

    Depends on the game. If the game is a product, then don't expect patches, bug fixes, and be prepared for developers to take less creative risks. Or be prepared to pay a $60 premium for those...

    Please do not reply to obvious spam messages. Firstly, it bumps up the spam messages, whereas we want to get rid of them.

    The world has moved on, and OUYA is meant to be bringing the advantages of the digital/online age to console gaming. Yes, you need an internet connection to download the games, but there are all...

    I guess OUYA was founded to make console gaming more open, especially for developers. To try and push some of the trends in other parts of the industry into the console space: Indie games, cheap...

    Discoverability. Google Play and Apple App Stores are terrible when it comes to connecting users with apps. For small app developers, it's pretty much impossible to gain a foothold in the app charts....

    Similar deal as it was with Amazon and FireTV. The critical thing is if developers have to specifically upload apps to Google TV store, or if they can just tick a box on their current build on Google...

    Well, some of them are, as I've seen spam messages on OUYA.tv (dev) forums before.

    My concern is that we've not seen OUYA 2.0 yet because OUYA don't have the money to market it properly, nor the...

    Amazon are thinking beyond games. They want to control your whole digital life and keep you in their own ecosystem. They do this by providing complimentary hardware for all your needs. So if you buy...

    The problem is, OUYA doesn't have the money for either a 1st party studio, nor the marketing of the OUYA 2.0 you're talking about, nor all the technical things like Wiimotes and social features. As...

    The reason for having the "OUYA" intro sequence is because the videos in Discover are just links to ones uploaded on youtube or vimeo for all to see. So not everyone watching them will know the game...

    Most non-AAA developers are now firmly focusing on PC. They already have a PC on which they are developing, so no need to worry about extra hardware or the hassle of having to wait 30 seconds or more...

    I have an account on the OUYA.tv (dev) forums. I don't go on there much any more since I'm developing for WiiU atm, but I expect once I get back round to redoing Exec Star in Unity, I'll be on there...

    I met Julie back in September(?) last year. I told her OUYA's marketing strategy sucked, and they should give up targeting indie gamers and instead refocus on casuals.

    I dunno what I'd ask these...

    I agree with Arctic as well.

    The specs are only relevant because of the history of games consoles being sold on "ooo shiny graphics". In fact, OUYA need to de-emphasise that if anything, since...

    For comparison, Shahid Ahmed from Sony's Strategic Content division was recently quoted as saying they had "over 70 games in development for PSVita". That was in response to criticism about Vita...

    I think in the past at least, the non-free-the-games way has been about getting your game in front of Kellee or one of the others from OUYA, or having them come across it on a convention/show floor...

    The issue for Sony is that they've invested a lot in having a device with all this extra cool stuff like the back touch screen or gyros, which developers now won't use, since they will want to hit...

    We're getting into philosophical territory here.



    The problem is that while many of the things we take for granted as gamers simply don't work without the servers, it's not obvious how or why...
