OUYA: A New Approach to Video Game Consoles July 21, 2012

Posted by stem4kidsinfo in Uncategorized.

OUYA is an upcoming video game console that aims to bring us back to the “good old days” of console gaming.  The console is powered by Android, so games will be easy to develop, and software licenses will be more affordable- hopefully leading to cheaper games.  The console itself will be sold for just $99- which seems incredible given the $200 pricetag on most of the consoles out now.  Additionally, all games produced on OUYA must be at least partially free to play, taking inspiration, the creators say, from popular PC games such as Team Fortress 2 or League of Legends.  This means that ALL games, if not entirely free, will most likely include some form of free trial, demo version, or tutorial level that you can try before you buy.  While OUYA is still early in development, there is a lot of support for this small console ($5 million has already been raised on Kickstarter!), and I hope to see a lot of good things from this project in the future.
