    Undoubtedly when they changed the colour scheme, it went up hugely in my estimations!

    More seriously, when I first got my hands on it, I thought it was quite good. From a developer perspective, it...

    Sounds good to me. Just need to set a date and time!

    The elgato only has a delay of about a second for me. Back last year when OUYA came out, I actually set up the OUYA, my TV and my PC in the same room and streamed some matches of iMech Online. On one...

    I think actually, companies like Sony and Microsoft, or Square Enix did sit up and take notice when OUYA clearly hit a nerve during its kickstarter. Sony and MS were practically falling over...

    Firstly, if an indie doesn't have a passion for the game they're making, they're unlikely to put in the effort needed to make it really high quality. They may even produce something worse than...

    Or you could stream your OUYA play on twitch (though needs extra hardware. I have an elgato gamecapture HD that allows me to do that, but that's more by accident that the software it comes lets me do...

    I kinda went through that phase as well, but it's pretty obviously not all OUYA's fault that we're where we are at today.

    I still advocate OUYA development to other indie devs I meet and talk to, but I think most have already made up their mind about it, and can be quite finicky about decisions like what platform to...

    OUYA hasn't really changed my gaming habits. I spend all day on my PC working from home, so at the end of the day, it's easier to just fire up a game or do whatever else on the PC I'm already sat at....

    My graphics card on my PC got fried last summer. I get glitches all over the screen whenever I try and play a game that heavily uses 3D graphics. It doesn't make things unplayable, but it does really...

    Must admit I'm starting to collect a backlog of games, steam-sale-style. Bought Ittle Dew when it was on sale, but still need to finish it before I go onto Neon Shadow and Polarity, both of which I'm...

    OUYA were giving the Free-The-Games-Fund kickstarter campaigns quite a lot of press attention about 6 months ago, but that seems to have subsided recently.

    I've seen examples of games that display...
  13. OUYA Sales - How do they affect your purchasing habits?

    I've noticed OUYA have had a series of sales recently, featuring one or two games at a time. I wonder how this has affected people's purchasing habits. Do you find you're buying more, or putting off...

    Remember, anecdotal evidence isn't really evidence at all. If all of your friends rushed out to buy a Fire TV, that just says something about your friends. It's statistically meaningless to...

    Making these forums into a more general site for other microconsoles as well as OUYA came up before, but we decided against it, because changing the whole nature of the forum would cause a whole lot...

    Let's not get too pessimistic. OUYA wasn't really hitting those customers who will now be going out and buying Fire TV sets anyway. The question now is whether OUYA can survive on what it currently...

    I'm fairly sure OUYA have been trying to get netflix on the box since day 1. It's netflix that have snubbed OUYA, not vice versa. OUYA just don't have the money to promote the console, and don't seem...

    I expect sideloading will be possible without rooting for the same reason as it is possible on Kindle Fire, which is to allow developers to get their apps on device. If you can connect other...

    It'd make more sense to strengthen partnership with NVidia, since NVidia already own a stake in OUYA. Get the OUYA store on a lower end box (OUYA 2.0) as well as a higher end device like the NVidia...

    Releasing a minimum viable product when consumers really weren't expecting that.

    More over, the failure to recognise that the product is both the box and the games on it.

    Finally, I think OUYA...

    I think some devs just jumped on the bandwagon for extra publicity, without any intention of ever really delivering. Or changed their minds at a later date, knowing that OUYA was such a small...

    A similar problem affects the Wii-U and its gamepad. Studios of all sizes don't want to have to think about how to shoehorn in use of the gamepad, so they don't bother with Wii-U at all.

    I've been arguing for this for a long time.

    Doh! Glad you seem to have got it sorted in the end.

    I think with greenlight, and promoting your game in general, you either have to do the whole minecraft thing, where you are totally 100% open...
