    Upcoming changes to DISCOVER

    Hey folks,

    I just wanted to give y'all a heads up on some upcoming DISCOVER improvements. Over the past few months, we've been putting in some behind-the-scenes code to allow us to better make changes on our server and have them show up immediately on OUYA with no update required. Going forward you'll be seeing changes as we run tests to help determine the best DISCOVER layout for our gamers and developers.

    We've read your comments and the most overwhelming feedback (from both gamers and developers) was to eliminate the Sandbox and replace it with a New Releases section. So that's the first change you'll see, starting today =)

    I do want to emphasize that we'll be running a number of different tests over the next few weeks - and this is one of them. So don't be alarmed when you see changes...just keep giving us feedback on what you do and don't like.

    Thanks!
    -James, Producer Dude

    Long as you keep a way for every single developer to have a chance of showing up in discover, go for it!

    I'm guessing this will be similar but start showing new stuff in order of release date or something related.

    YAY! Very excited to hear that these changes can now be instant!

    Also a big fan of the renaming of "Sandbox". I'll keep my eye out for future changes!

    Oh yea, that's a good point to clarify. With this change, all games will show up in the genres immediately when they are published (previously they had to exit the Sandbox to be in a genre). Genres are sorted by O-rank.

    I hope that one of the changes will be an introduction of the Beta section where unfinished games will stay until their full release.

    I don't think the Sandbox should just go away. Have it as a category in the genre row. I LOVE the idea of a new release section.
