OUYA ANDROID CONSOLE .  A NEW ORDER BEGIN !!!

I got my Ouya android couple days ago. First a little background from me, I am hard gamer from the beginning. I bought & played to Trs80, Commodore, Coleco, Atari, Sega & finally PC.  I have been without a gaming console for a couple of years. I prefer play to PC games i got with PEER TO PEER. I had thought about buying a Xbox One or a Playstation 4 but I couldn’t bring my self to pay $400 to $500 on a console plus 60$ for every game...

With my OUYA i already can play to all my favorite emulators on my TV , go on internet, watch Youtube and i can upload & try tons of android games & apps by USB side loading for free !!

I think the future of emulation on a console like device is in Android. I picked up an OUYA,  because I think the future is here. I picked up because I think it is a step in the right direction and I want to have experience in this space. I'm hoping enough people buy them to give it a bit of life because I think it has potential

For $99, I'm really happy with the little bit I've played with it so far. There is s a decent community supporting the little box that is much easier to hack than an OG xBox.

When I heard all the noise about the new gaming console that was a Kickstarter project called Ouya I became intrigued. So, at the beginning of April after the Kickstarter project had become successful I preordered one and i don't regret !

Ouya is NOT a normal console!" "It claims to be a console, but not one that we're thinking of." "One of the big points of Ouya, is to shake up the gaming industry with something extremely different and accessable for users and developers alike.

I would tell anyone who buys a Ouya  to remember is that this console only cost you $99.00 and if you compare it to an Xbox One or a Playstation 4 you will be highly disappointed. However if you remember that it is a $99.00 console I think you will have a lot of fun playing the games that are available on it. You may even find some independent games that you really like. Overall despite the few problems, so far I am happy I purchased the Ouya. If you are looking for a gaming console you can play on your TV and it will not break the bank, then the Ouya is worth a look.

If you want get OUYA console specifications or buy online a OUYA console can you suggest to go to THIS LINK
OR
Click on this picture :

I only want encourage this nice open source idea.

Big names of gaming industries try to discredit OUYA console & prevent any advertising of  this free concept.  I will don't let industries kill this open source paradise !!!

New free games & apps appears every day on OUYA console!!!  
  THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING !!!

I dont like Ouya that much but hey, soon there will be a PSP Emulator for this.
Go check it out its already awesome enough for normal Android. But on TV in Hd would be like the best shit ever.
The Emulator is called PPSSPP.
Look at this Resolutionz!

What digimon game is that? I tried a Digimon game once and at the beginning I had to answer questions with Yes or No and no matter how many times I tried to pass it I couldn't... :(

Re:Digitize of course.
I think I know whats your problem was :D
Its really stupid. Did you pressed the X button to apply?
Well this game uses the O button to apply (Probably Nintendo Player Friendly Design choice) so you were cancelling the whole time

I don't know.
My Ouya is collecting dust over my Wii U (also collecting dust) for many months already.
The Wii U has definitively potential to stop collecting dust, but the Ouya... hmmm...
Well, the SNES, Megadrive, GBA emulators... and even ePSXe sideloaded works great, but eg. DS emulations is slow as hell.
The menus are bad, the interface not so good.

Actual games for the Ouya are scarce... Ok, there are a lot but that itself is a problem, the horrible menus make it very hard to find one good game between the 99% shovelware.
The controllers are OKish, but at least in mine the face buttons tend to get stuck, not nice, not nice at all.
I don't know, I hope it gets better soon.

Also, the sideloaded special XBMC version with hardware acceleration works great for videos, as long as you don't go Hi10p, it has awesome subtitle support (I watch anime, so subs get complicated with many effects, rotations and so, it handles them perfectly)... But for some reason the colors in mine look very off-mark purplish and white-burned. Don't know why.

The swapped O and X thing is for all Japanese games I believe, no idea why though.

It gets really confusing when you suddently have to enter a password or character name and the the X O swaps back to how we know it.

Haha, yeah. You can change a setting when you've put CFW on a PSP so O and X are always swapped, if there's no such setting on that emulator maybe there should be.
