What is Ouya?
Ouya is a $99 android based, game console. Designed from the ground up to be hacked, the console focuses on downloadable, free-to-play games. The games will be made available through the Ouya marketplace. Boxer8 has included dev kits with every unit, so developers and programmers can easily make, and release games for the system.
*To clarify, when they talk about free-to-play, it means every game will have a free demo on the marketplace. *
A wireless controller, featuring two analog sticks, a directional pad, four face buttons, four shoulders, touchpad, and a system button. It won't, however, have an accelerometer or rumble. Much like the console itself, the controller was design to be hacked.
