Product Description

Product Description

Video games just feel bigger and better on a TV screen. Surround Sound. HD. A room full of friends. Console gaming isn’t going anywhere, but console games aren’t as much fun as they could be.

That’s why the OUYA, a new kind of game console, exists--to bring groundbreaking games to the television in an entirely new way.

Games Only on OUYA

You download OUYA games directly to your console--no discs to buy or scratch.

And the games on OUYA are made by some of the most inventive game developers in the business. Favorite franchises like Final Fantasy, brand new never-before-seen titles and hundreds of other games. Shooters, platformers, role-playing games, action games... You name it.

And, best of all, every game on OUYA is free to try. You might end up investing in that coin doubler, buying the healing elixir that extends your life, or unlocking the full version of the game, but everything -- absolutely everything -- is free to try.

Small... but Powerful

OUYA is about the size of a Rubik’s cube, but it plays hard in full-screen HD. It uses an nVIDIA quad-core CPU and outputs via HDMI at up to a stunning 1080p resolution. It powers on instantly.

Need more storage? No problem. Just plug in an external hard drive into the USB 2.0 port. Like to hardwire your Internet? That’s cool. Jack into OUYA’s high-speed ethernet port. WiFi works too. If you want to develop games, just plug your laptop into our micro-USB port -- anyone can release an OUYA game. And the hardware opens so you can customize it if that’s your bag.

We listen to our supporters, and try to evolve OUYA so it always gets better for them. When you buy OUYA, you become part of our effort to change how console gaming works.

Additional Requirements

You will need a valid credit or debit card to download OUYA content. Your card will not be charged unless you choose to make a purchase. Though many games on OUYA will not require a purchase to unlock additional content or features, others may offer for purchase in-game products or additional features (like full versions or additional levels).

    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    This arrives in a very professionally packaged box and gives a good impression from the off set. Unpacking it, the actual OUYA console is tiny, but looks well made with all the ports on the back and a single power button on top. The pad surprised me - it's actually very comfortable to hold and use (although I had to google how to put the batteries in, d'oh!)
    Pairing it was easy and then it was up and working - it was very responsive in everything I tried, and you can also add other controllers including PS3 and XBox 360 pads amongst others.

    The console fires up and has some amusing comments while it did it's updates and things - very much an indie console and not from a big corporate. A nice touch.

    The interface is very easy to use, not quite as slick as an Apple product but fast and easy to understand. Loved the fact that all the games are free in some way to try (although you do put in credit card info once on initial setup) and you can choose to buy or not (liked the fact that default pop up is set to not buy to prevent accidental purchase). Some of the games are pretty good - Sonic and Shadowgun look amazing and play well. However there is a lot of not good games in the store, it's early days so a bit hit and miss I suppose.

    The prices in the store are odd with no common pricing structure - most of the stuff I wanted was free, but prices on other games ranged from $3 to $16. Some may be worth it, most are not so it's good they are all free to try in some way.

    I bought this for two reasons - XBMC being the first, and happy to say the install is a couple of clicks and you're away. It installs Frodo 12.2 and works flawlessly - a full 1080p movie played while scanning for new content and having the menu overlay on.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A nice little console! 8 Dec. 2014
    By Jamie
    Here is my review on this little guy!

    Had my OUYA since last year and what can I say? It's great for the money! Each update makes the console that little bit better! The quad-core CPU and the Tegra 3 GPU is great and I scored over a total of 19,000 on AnTuTu Benchmark which is pretty good for £99 (when I originally bought it)! Now for some pros and cons!

    Pros:
    + Great specs for a great price!
    + Great as a media center! I'm running Kodi (v14.0 - Helix - RC2) at the time of writing this review.
    + The store has over 1,000 games available to choose from!
    + Emulators such as N64 and GBA run just fine!

    Cons:
    - Wireless speeds are slow. Acceptable for the price I suppose but consider that other android based boxes have better strength so if speed is vital to you, go for a cheaper box perhaps?
    - Only one USB port. The likes of the MXQ box have 4 ports for a lower price so again, if USB ports are vital to you, go for a cheaper box.

    Overall this little console has some great potential! I hope to see more improvements as more updates come along and I'm sure this console will be even better than when I first bought it! I'd like to end this review by saying if you like XBMC and what it has to offer, buy this console! It's just as good as any other! If you're more into first person shooters such as Call of Duty, buy a PS4 or Xbox One I say!

    I also note that if do intend to use XBMC/Kodi on this console, get a skin called Mimic! Getting just about 60 FPS is not to be sniffed at! :)

    4.0 out of 5 stars So worth it 8 July 2013
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    So, I've seen a lot of negative reviews for the Ouya, many comparing it to other, much more expensive consoles. All I can say is, ignore the backlash, this is the best £100 I have ever spent on any gaming device.

    The two big draws for this console are as follows:

    1) Free games
    The Ouya comes with dozens of free games you can download and play straight out of the box. While many of them are cheep and nasty, there is a handful of good, entertaining titles available for nothing at all. What other console offers this?

    2) The best local multi-player ever offered
    I have never had so much fun playing with friends as I have with the Ouya. There are loads of great games available to play on a single console, and all for a fraction of the price of today's games. Almost all of the multiplayer titles are compatible with existing ps3/360 controllers (and some even use ios/android devices as controllers) making it easy to get a bunch of mates round for a gaming session.

    The system only has a few exclusives available atm, and very few single player titles, but this is the machine to watch out for. If the market backs this, expect a whole new revolution in gaming!

    3.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my son 14 Dec. 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Bought this mainly for XBMC rather than games. He wanted it as it seemed his forum set for XBMC thought it was a good platform.

    His opinion is that it is ok but average performance and does not rate many of the free games. However as a compromise for XBMC and games it is acceptable but not as good as other XBMC boxes.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Little box, big potential 1 July 2013
    By Yann
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    First I have to say, I am no "gamer", just like to play some funny games from time to time on my tablet or on the Wii I bought for my little daughter. My own last console was a SuperNES about 20 years ago.

    So now my opinion:

    HARDWARE:
    It's fact, that new smartphones (like the Galaxy S4) have better hardware than the Ouya. But for me the main question nowadays is: "Why does a Smartphone need 2GB of RAM"? To have this little box with a Tegra3 and 1GB of RAM for that price is really good. Only 8GB of storage memory is not very much. Yes, you can connect a usb flash drive to it to extend it, but that is more suitable for data you want to use with the Ouya, such as ROMs for emulators, movies, music, ..... But the games are installed on internal storage. And as the systems does already use some space, you don't have 8GB for your games (it's a bit under 6 GB you have). And I think, that when more and more high quality native games will come, there could be not enough memory. The controllers may not be the best available on market, but it does what you need. It's rather heavy but so it's good in hand. Unfortunately also on mine sometimes the buttons get stuck, hope that will be better in future.
    Connecting a keyboard was very simple, so I don't have to "search" for the letters anymore.

    GAMES:
    At the moment, most games available are ported games from mobile devices. So graphics are funny but not high quality and controlling is mostly very easy/basic. But I - despite to others - am impressed anyway, to have 200 games/apps (well, I think there are about 190 games and 10 other apps) right at the start. What console does that have? And there are many, many more to come. Especially native ones and Ouya-only games.
