TVs aren't high resolution.

1920x1080 isn't high resolution? That's 2K, and we have 4K tvs coming just around the corner.
 

If they are releasing a new Ouya each year, it could get messy.
 
I mean, not from a CPU side since ARM isn't going out soon, but there are many GPU possibilities around. This year is Tegra, maybe next will be PowerVR and in that single maneuver you get all the bad sides of smartphone development in the console.

Yep, it's contrary to the reasons for even owning one. They should be on a 5 year release cycle at least. The high end tablets have been doing the same thing and they are obsolete almost the second you buy them. Especially with the Tegra line. Most Tegra games are just flimsy tech demos to show off the latest hardware.

Also it means these things are being produced simply to end up in a landfill. We have too many electronics on the planned obsolesce path.

But it's not like they weren't headed for a landfill anyways. They'll be buried beside those legendary unsold E.T. carts.
