Wow, the console looks a lot bigger than it did in their promo videos! cool.png

Yeah, I was kind of disappointed to learn it wouldn't fit in my house...

I really wish I would not have bought one of these things. It seems like a waste of money in hindsight.

Have you played it yet? We spent all night playing our two Ouyas and it's actually a ton of fun. Get a SNES/N64/whatever emulator and you can reminisce the old times. We played Contra III and Zelda forever last night and it was a ton of fun being able to do it on a proper TV with a controller as opposed to on a computer with an emulator.

There's also some really clever games. Fist of Awesome is hilarious. Dub Wars was actually pretty fun and a good audio/visual game. Puddle is pretty interesting, but a little slow for me. Canabalt is on there and of course that's cool. StalagFight was also really awesome.

It'll also serve as a cool media PC replacement for me. But mostly I'm excited for the indie games that will come out. I think it's going to give a lot of people the opportunity to make a console based game, with a TV and a controller, that otherwise wouldn't be able to and we'll see some real gems come out of it.

No such luck for me, but glad to hear they're ready to start shipping. I was a backer pretty early on, so I hope it'll show up in the next week or two.

 

The emulators are nice to have, but you can do that on just about anything. I'm more interested in seeing what the indies produce.

That's the free game it comes bundled with. It's called "Try And Get This F*cker Into Your Living Room".

Edit: whoops, fixed quote

This is largely why I got mine. I was tired of there being so few couch cooperative games that I wanted something that would let me make my own games to play with friends.

I'd love to game on this thing ... but I'll be VERY happy if I can use it to replace my EOL Boxee Box as my home media player.

 

It would be great if the unit stayed the same size and you could swap out the internals every year for the latest and greatest...  :-)
