On the other hand, as it's dead-easy to port from Android, it launched with over a hundred titles, and has since amassed a few hundreds more — including emulators for tons of classic systems (up to [[PlayStation|PS1]]/[[Nintendo 64|N64]] run well) and media players. And if that is not enough, you can easily install pretty much any Android program as well, without modding. For a $99 machine, it's nothing to sneeze at. It's recommended you hold off for now, if you want to play these games you're better off sticking with an Android Tablet.

Ouya
"The revolution will be televised."

The Ouya is an Android-based microconsole, famous for being financed by a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign.

It became quite controversial, however, for a flawed launch: many backers did not receive their units in advance, early controllers had issues with lag (since patched) and buttons getting stuck (requires a very simple hardware mod), poor wireless performance, and some games had framerate drop issues for not being properly optimized for the Tegra 3 chip.

On the other hand, as it's dead-easy to port from Android, it launched with over a hundred titles, and has since amassed a few hundreds more — including emulators for tons of classic systems (up to PS1/N64 run well) and media players. And if that is not enough, you can easily install pretty much any Android program as well, without modding. For a $99 machine, it's nothing to sneeze at.
