That's probably a good idea. The key is to remain unfamiliar so as to refrain from developing new interests.

The key is to remain familiar so you know your money is well spent.

That's if Onlive decides to port that app to the console and if customers have good internet connection to stream games.

@Nilbeit
Those aren't confirmed games coming btw.

Nicely done! thumb up

For $99 I would buy into that... but then this hacker part came up, so no, I'll be keeping clear of that... sorry.

You don't know a lot about android do you. Its not a out porting lime ot os on console. The Os just has to running what the app supports. Onlive supports froyo and above and the Oyua is running ICS. That and android allows you to sideload apks from the other sources.

Upon thinking about it, when they say "hackable" I think they mean you can change or modify the hardware... that's not hacking... that's modding.

If I donated money to this project, I'd feel betrayed if the console developers were to court companies EA and Activision. Ignoring the fact that the console isn't going to be as powerful as your Xbox 360s or PS3s and unable to produce games people expect from these franchises, I feel it's against the ethos of the product as an open, Indie based console.

"...some of the best, most creative gamemakers are focused on mobile and social games because those platforms are more developer-friendly. And the ones who remain focused on console games can’t be as creative as they’d like."

"It's time to upend console gaming. Let’s open this sucker up! It's time we brought back innovation, experimentation, and creativity to the big screen. Let’s make the games less expensive to make, and less expensive to buy. With all our technological advancements, shouldn't costs be going down? Gaming could be cheaper!"

"OUYA could change AAA game development, too. Forget about licensing fees, retail fees, and publishing fees. "

You don't know how life works boo- Onlive has to PORT it over because Ouya doesn't have access to Google Playstore.

My Kindle Fire doesn't have access to Google Play, yet I sideloaded Onlive onto it easily.

Edit: On an unrelated note, @Sony_70: Are you planning on installing Jelly Bean on your KF? I think it might tide me over until I can afford the Nexus 7, that is once all of the glitches are worked out.

Ouya doesn't have an SD Card slot unless they allow you to sideload using a USB Hard Drive.

I have an Android phone and have side loaded some apps but I would rather have it instantly on my phone than to go through a process of doing it.

Modders aren't welcome? Looks like It's time to upend indie console gaming... before it even started.

Thinking about it but nervous due to never dealing with Roms before. My phone is stock android so I never had that problem. That and the biggest reason. I want Jelly Bean is the voice stuff which wouldn't work on fire.

Maybe

They say they are going to let hackers modify it, even if most of the games will be free, wouldn't that be a problem, hackers will have EVERY game for free, and I don't think the best games will be free.

I'm feeling the same way for the most part. My Japanese uncle is staying with us, and he has experience with ROMs so he'd help me.
