Google has nothing to do that stuff Khatharr.
Ah, my mistake. I saw the press release on Google+ and saw that it was using Andriod and assumed that it was Google doing this. Props to the Ouya people then. Pandora was looked down on because a lot of people assumed that it was just a piracy tool. It looks like Ouya is getting more respect. It's awesome to think that there will be a respected console which people can just develop for without having to mess with a bunch of red tape and excessive legal concerns.
They said themselves that actually all consoles will ultimately be dev consoles. Those who willingly paid 699 or above were paying for the first run consoles. As the first run was so small (about 1200 approx) they are going to cost alot more than mass produced consoles, plus your getting a clear plastic console unlike everyone else.
*Looks in wikipedia*
(developer models ordered during the Kickstarter campaign for $699 or $1,337 will come pre-rooted)
Yeah, I was just laughing at the '1337'. The press info says that the consumer console will be easily accessible for both DIY rooting and also hardware mods.
