Guess that answers some peoples questions.
AndroidTV is still an underserved market after all this time...
A problem I see with shifting the forum to all Android development is the guys who will use this forum just to spam and not use it to be part of the community. That was always the greatest asset of this forum. Most forums don't have a community like this. I know I'm a staff member but I've interacted with so many of you here in a non staff capacity. I doubt that would have happened anywhere else. But being that I am the caretaker of the moment there is SOMETHING that needs to be done. I'm just not sure what it is yet. One thing I would not want to lose is the essence of this forum.
I wish Razer would have put in a little more on the effort side to see things through. I'm sure they did SOMETHING on their end but when it comes to getting the word out there, they failed. To have hardware you have to have software and vice versa but when you're too scared to speak about the product or give updates then others will be skeptical. I personally sold people on the power of this thing in passing conversations, not even trying to so a hard sell or anything and if I could have done that in just a simple conversation then a company with a valuation over a billion could have done more or at least you'd think so.
Note when I say Razer I mean Razer, not the OUYA guys. TeamOUYA is still there obviously and doing what they can for the software side. It's just a shame to see this product never get off the ground and it feels like there wasn't an effort to try. Maybe there was but it came across in messages that hurt the consumer base more than helped. Even to this date besides the Shield there are very few boxes on the level of the Forge in terms of horsepower. It lacks on the app side but this little box is a beast in terms of Android boxes. I'd like to see some benchmarks on the Forge vs Switch since the Switch is using Nvidia tech that is little dated and may even give a close comparable.
AndroidTV has it's own set of problems but others seem to have overcome them to some degree.
Bah...there is a lot more I could and would say but eh......
