I'm rather surprised we haven't had a thread for this until now, but yeah, it's pretty cool. I'd definitely like getting one sometime. I'm sure it'll have an awesome hacker/modder/homebrew scene.

This.

I was apprehensive of it at first since it's not likely to get original AAA games on it, but the beauty of the Ouya is that that's not the point. It's a way for indie devs to have an opportunity to design games for consoles, which will allow them to flex their design muscles even more. I missed out on the Kickstarter, but I hope to get an Ouya eventually, and it's on my to-dev-for list.

I'm getting a copy; folks backed the kickstarter for me.

Looking forward to getting it. Never had a smartphone, so I've missed out on everything android. Plus, I'm loving indie games more and more.

I've seen the skeptism that was floating all around the development of the console, and i'm REALLY glad this console turned out fine! The idea of a cheap console where everyone can at least try some games, and easy to code with, is open to a lot of developing.

As rumor has it, they get in contact with a game streaming provider ...this way could they offer AAA games on the Ouya too. But rumors are rumors ...let's see what will come next.
