Sad thing is that whilst alot of people would love for something like this to be available and have the games available to for it to do well. Well its too easy to point out the mistakes or the worst case situations and play of on those gaming more hits and adverts on a article and that maybe why the title of the article is all doom and the content a little more pragmatic and mindful.
If the article had the title "The $99 Ouya game console: Exciting, innovative - a new hope" then people would read it in a different vain. Sadly that is not the case.
Sure it's in all effect the same specs as the nexus tablet witht he added bluetooth controller and no dsplay in many respects but thats not all what its about.
Even if it fails, it has the potentual to create a niche android gaming market/portal.
