OUYA reviews appear online, isn't living up to the hype


The first publications are receiving their first OUYA founders editions of the much hyped Android console and a few have published some in depth reviews of the Kickstarter backed device.

So far the reviews have been far from positive and it looks, in it's current almost beta-ish state, quite disappointing.

The Verge review gives the console a rather poor 3.5 out of 10 and states "For 99 dollars, everyone who backed Ouya's Kickstarter has unwittingly signed up to beta-test a game console. Alpha-test, even: this is a product with some good ideas and a potentially promising future, but it's a million miles away from something worth spending your money on."

Engadget's review has no score and is overall a little less damming. "The version of OUYA shipping now should be considered a beta release, and anyone hoping for anything more is in for some disappointment. It's simply not ready for retail. The system is rough around the edges in many ways, quite literally when regarding the controller, but the interface and menus also could use work."

Did you pay into the original 8.5 million dollar funded OUYA? Let us know below!

In theory i like the idea. In practice, it's going to have the same issue as any device that has android powering it in that a year from now it'll be horrendously out of date! I've read about controller lag in this model, which is a bad sign in any console's book. imagine if your trigger buttons had a delay?!? no thanks. Disappointing is the nicest of the words I can use I think

Well that is not surprising. It's even worse when you look at the polls asking what people want on the system and replies include Ass Creed, GTA, Skyrim etc. It's pretty silly.

I still don't see where it fits in. Surely if you want to play these android games you play them on your phone?

I've never cared nor bothered about a Kickstarter project. In my paranoid little world they're all scams. I have little time for Android and/or [especially] iOS. Never interested in the OUYA, which sounds silly quite frankly. It's a shame that it's not getting rave reviews so far. But it's not a surprise to me. Android is meant for handheld devices. I thought it was that simple.

I was always under the impression that gaming was this consoles secondary use. The primary use being media centre, apps, then gaming...

A double click is an accident, a triple click is just plain careless.

Gloria It doesn't help that when you press send it doesn't update the comments until you refresh.

What I do is press send, copy the text, refresh then if my comment hasn't popped up I just paste in the box

I'm sorry yoda soldier but my point stands, clicking twice because it didn't work is fair enough, again without a refresh to see if it did though is just sloppy.

I bought one after so I have to wait a little longer but will receive it before June. Other than the games I think people need to realise there will be a lot of tv apps or possibilities like it has an app for flash and a browser so I will be using it to watch sites like drama crazy on the television. Finally japanese dramas full screen. I will probably buy ff3 and try a lot of games but if flash works I'll be extremely happy.
