You don't come here often, do you?

There was an article here about it every other day several months ago. Seems very promising, but the Shield and the 'Stick seem to be trying to steal the thunder from the Ouya.

it is coming to the uk, but for nearly double the price. (£99 according to reports, google it). No release date though.

you not aware how massive the gaming community has become on android devices? it's just even over-taken apple in terms of phone OS's.

i think (and hope, as i'm developing for ouya/android), that people will snap up the opportunity to play these games on their tv, especially for £50-£100 for the machine to do it (as opposed to £400 for a phone that does it, or as well as).

Maybe I've missed the point of this but....what is the point of this?

I think your logic is flawed. The phones are the reason for the high uptake of Android game players, not the software itself.

People get the phone they like then they play the games because its there for them, not the other way round. This means that most Android players couldn't give tWo s**ts about a dedicated gaming device to plug into their TV.

EDIT: Also, you mention cost of phones but I cant remember ever having to pay up front for a mobile phone!

I still don't get the point of all these devices, I've been sat around with android devices, snapdragon processors and tegra chipsets coming out of my ass for a long time and i've still yet to play a game remotely worth buying a dedicated device to play it. They range from completely sucking, to completely sucking in HD, to being good fun for a few days and then I never touch them again. Sure i'm not the same as everyone, but I still don't see any of these android consoles really catching on. Most of them are less capable than people's phones.
