It appears that some very influential people are working on a console that would also prove to be pretty influential. The product, still in its concept phase, is known as “Ouya,” and offers some rather impressive attributes to would-be investors and purchasers. For example, the console costs only $99, runs Android, is completely “hackable,” and all the games on it will be free.
Sure, it’s hard to believe, but the list of talent behind the project really does add a glimmer of possibility. You might not have heard of some of these people, but they’re assuredly valuable to an up-and-coming console: Yves Behar, the renowned product developer; Ed Fries, original Xbox guru; Julie Uhrman, from IGN, Muffi Ghadiali, Kindle developer, and more.
What do you think? Is $100 a low enough price to drop on a small, portable system with completely free games? I, for one, am pretty skeptical of this turning out good for people adverse to advertising in games, but I’ll be keeping my eye on this.
