Do We Take The Interface For Granted? Oh How I Love It.
A lot of discussions happen in regards to OUYA Incorporation's next logical step with the console and the topic of an interface overhaul is almost always brought up for various reasons. While I'm inclined to agree since there's nothing wrong with improving on anything just so long as it's an actual improvement with an example of the polar opposite being what Microsoft did with their Windows line by going from the popular Windows 7 interface to the loathed Windows 8 interface. Despite my desire to see some things happen I think that the interface for the OUYA console is by far the most user friendly and visually appealing out of anything I've seen from anybody else. The Playstation line of consoles were also so tacked on to me while the Xbox side of things always looked like something that was derived from minds that had fetishes for squares, rectangles, and shape edges.
Back when we had the old interface with its ultra-bright orange that made me turn the brightness down on my television in fear that it would blow some LEDs out aside. I really do like the current one we have and I think we take it for granted without realizing it. Sure, some things are missing and some of the things we currently have can be better but they're very minor in hindsight once you change your perspective on what the console's interface is opposed to what it isn't in comparison to the others. Do you guys on OUYAForum find yourselves thinking the same things I am?
@OUYA Incorporate: It may not be perfect but I would also like to thank you for creating the interface(s) that you did as they're by far my favorite and I'm sure others would think it's their favorite too. If it were like anything as seen on the other consoles then I think we'd be insane by this point. You have my approval on this. Something that is harder to achieve than anything else on this planet.
