A freaking SD card slot for starters,
Others, suggest in the comments!
It's been over a year since the OUYA was released. What do you think the OUYA 2 should have to better succeed next year. Sound it off!
Meanwhile, here's my suggestion,
Android 5.0 Lollipop
NVIDIA Tegra K1
Quad-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A15
192 CUDA cores, 364 GFLOPS @ 950 MHz
32 GB flash memory
2 GB DDR3L SDRAM
Bluetooth LE 4.0
2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n
2 x USB 2.0
1 x microUSB 2.0
1 x Ethernet 10/100
1 x HDMI 1.4
Est. release: Q2 2015
RRP: US$129 - US$149

A freaking SD card slot for starters,
Pretty sure it will be later than April, probably Sept-Oct 2014
I'd like to see a Tegra 5 , SD / uSD slot + External WiFi Antennae
yeah, that's a great idea but external usb drive has solved the limited storage problem for me
Now available on OUYA
I voted,"Others, suggest in the comments!". I wouldn't mind 2.0 being the model number but I would prefer every generation to just be named "OUYA". I rather it have more of an appearance of being one console that is constantly evolving like the controller instead of being a brand new console. It would just be one console that gets upgraded yearly instead of a new generation. That way, ten years from now instead of saying,"OUYA has survived ten generations!" We could say,"OUYA has been a successful console for ten years!"
Anyway, what I would like to see is them making the next iteration focus on keeping the price at $99. Within that price point I would like them to focus on fixing any hardware issues OUYA 1.0 has first and if they can solve all those issues for under $99 then they fit in the higher specs that would make people think of it more of an OUYA 2.0. This goes along with my naming thing above. I don't like the idea of jumping from OUYA 1.0 with its issues to OUYA 2.0 with its own hardware issues. I would prefer more of a evolving transition from one to the other and if that transition can be done in one year then that would be great but if it takes two years that would be fine too. In other words, I rather see more things like fixing WIFI, fixing the ventilation problem, replacing USB 2.0 with USB 3.0, more internal space, and so forth before worrying about going from Tegra 3 to Tegra 4. OUYA 1.0 not being an OUYA 2.0 isn't one of OUYA 1.0 issues. There are still all kinds of games yet to be ported to it, games that are being developed for it now, and the FTGF for it doesn't even end until almost a year from now. I don't think there will be any shortage of OUYA 1.0 games for a while and that most developers will be pushing its limits any time soon. The games are coming. They come weekly. The issues with OUYA 1.0 that can only be solved with hardware upgrades should be focused on first and OUYA 2.0 games second while trying to keep the price at $99 dollars while it evolves to the point of having OUYA 2.0 games. It doesn't have to exactly be $99 but the point is I want them to focus on keeping it cheap, evolving yearly as just an OUYA, and increasing the specs for the games to be thought of as OUYA 2.0 games only after all the other issues are solved first. The same with going from OUYA 2.0 to OUYA 3.0 games. To put it another way, I would rather the next OUYA to be more of an OUYA 1.5 than an OUYA 2.0 if the iteration would be an expensive OUYA 2.0 that still has OUYA 1.0 issues or an even more expensive OUYA 2.0 that fixes OUYA 1.0 issues.
The only thing I want to see is 100% backwards compatibility. I don't want to buy an OUYA 2 to keep making games for OUYA/OUYA 2. I have an OUYA "1" now that plays the game we're developing just fine, and I want it to work on all future versions of the OUYA.
Personally I would like to see -
1. Backwards Compatibility
2. Tegra 4 Processor
3. At least 2 GB of Ram (Maybe More?)
4. More Awesome!
For an indie developer like yourself it is even more important than my convenience of wanting less consoles that play more games. For you, only having one year at most for a game to make a profit is ridiculous. Your games shouldn't seem dated after just a year. An OUYA 1.0 game should be an OUYA 2.0, 3.0, 4.0,... game. If they would do something so stupid to not have backwards compatibility then they should at the very least make these cube consoles like LEGO's that hook together to eventually make one big cube console that makes everyone feel the OCD need to collect them all.
