It's got a quad-core Tegra processor but it would make a nice AROS box running on Android-hosted. I hope the AROS team comes out with multicore support soon.

Actually a fantastic idea. Android has great support and tons of games. Plus Amiga emulators and other retro emulators. Awesome!

Why would I buy an under-powered Android box when I can just buy an Android tablet and use a bluetooth controller/TV link. Seems pretty pointless to me.

I don't think the Ouya can be considered an under-powered Android box. It will be built around the Tegra 3 processor from nVidia. They are also working with nVidia to get the most out of the system. The controllers also look to be really cool. I think another part is the custom software.

It's a cool idea but the console itself looks incredibly ugly. I'd be interested if Aros ever gets a native ARM port, I'm not interested in running it hosted on anything.

I don't think the current crop of Android games is worth getting the console for, but I love the idea of a cheap development system which is the same as the target platform which people can play the games we create on.

I also don't like the name of it.

I see two ways to go for this thing. Either the indie community fully adopts it... or it was another nice try.

I hope it is the former as I like the idea a lot.

XBMC on Android now.. I could see me "upgrading" my ATV2s to Ouyas... 1080P, more grunt for general responsiveness and games and email/web... Whats not to like?
