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.
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).
Shooters, platformers, sports games, arcade classics and indie games just feel bigger and better on a TV screen. That’s why we created OUYA: to bring the most creative, innovative, and exciting games to the television.
OUYA will offer a broad range of games from all the genres you love. We’ve already lined up some great content from AAA game publishers such as Square Enix and NAMCO Bandai and independent developers like Tripwire Interactive, creators of The Ball, and Adam Saltsman, creator of Canabalt.
Plus, every game is free — well, free-to-try. Developers can offer a free demo with a full-game upgrade, in-game items or powers, or ask release episodic games. We don’t want you to buy a game unless you love it.
OUYA has great games and great apps. That includes video and music streaming players, entertainment apps, and anything else you can think of. Current partners include VEVO, iheartradio, TuneIn, XBMC, Plex, Twitch.tv, and OnLive. Play games, watch videos, and listen to music all through OUYA, in the comfort of your living room.
Lastly, OUYA is powerful. We’ve partnered with NVIDIA to bring you best-in-class graphics and performance.
