    "At least one group of people thinks that Android is a solid platform for video games. There is a new device in development that uses Google's mobile OS specifically for game playback on a TV, and it carries the code name "Ouya." It doesn't appear to have an official license from Google yet, and it's unclear if the developers intend to go that route.


    After all, it's already being touted that users will be able to hack the device in order to play unofficial game titles through the Android software. Streaming video game devices appear to be the big thing these days. Onlive is as popular as ever, and is poised to get a large boost when it fully integrates with Google TV. And Sony just acquired Gaikai, the other key player in the "Netflix for video games" market."

    With $3m Ouya's problems are just starting - SlashGear (click for full article)

    "Kickstarter has its latest king, and the Ouya Android console has found itself at the eye of a perfect storm of geek-appeal. Satisfying the retro lusts of console gamers with the open-source idealism of Android aficionados, all wrapped up in a minimal casing the designer cred of which should satisfy all but the most staunch of minimalists, Ouya has unsurprisingly blasted past the $3m mark and, with 28 days left to run, could well become the next poster-child of crowdsourced funding. Make no mistake, though; if previous Kickstarter heroes like Twine and Pebble thought they had problems, Ouya faces a nightmare along with all that cash."
