10comments Onlive Announced For Ouya Game Console
Posted Fri 27th Jul 2012 7:18pm by Kelly Miller
 A lot of things have been said about the upcoming Ouya console from developer Boxer8. Not all of it has been bad, but it hasn't all been good either. The fact that it's completely open and hackable right of the box might have many tech geeks excited at the possibilities, but many others are concerned about what exactly the box will be capable of without rooting around its insides. While we know that the device is powered by Android and will support many popular Android titles, not much has been said about anything specific to the device itself.
Today the people behind the popular streaming game service OnLive have announced that it will be available to Ouya users from day one. It seems now that, if Boxer8 play their cards right, they will have all the high end titles that they need and more in order to have a varied and exciting launch.
According to TechCrunch and Onlive; Assassins Creed: Revelations, Darkness II, and Darksiders 2 will be playable as soon as you take Ouya out of the box simply by signing up for an OnLive account. In moments you're instantly connected to hundreds of high end titles; many with 30 minute trials available. 
Bruce Grove, Onlive General Manager stated on the company blog that “OUYA is rethinking the console business, making waves by using standard technology to make gaming for your living room accessible, affordable and more innovative than ever. In OnLive’s case, we pioneered a groundbreaking, cloud-based system that instantly delivers games to any device on demand."
An image of the Ouya controller has been outed today as well. It looks about how you would expect a controller to look except for the lack of symbols on the buttons. This is just a mock-up however according to the Ouya Kickstarter page.  the real controller will have symbols so as not to leave out the colorblind. 
The main drawing point for Ouya thus far has been its ludicrous low price point of only $99 dollars; immediately makes it appealing to gamers looking for a new device on the cheap. Not only that, every game has to have at least some content available free of charge. Now that the promise of big budget games is on the horizon as well, it could allow android dev's the time to churn out that carrot on a stick to lure in the casual and hardcore gamers alike.
Ouya is expected to be available to purchase in March 2013. If you are a backer and pledge more than $699 dollars than you can expect to receive your console as early as December.

0Right there with ya. I finally deedicd to head over to their Kickstarter page and am thrilled to see that this initiative really seems to have their shiatsu together. Although the geek side of me really wants this (hello hackability), I may hold off for now, if only for the following reasons:1. Another console? Really?2. 8GB of space? Eek.3. Re-buy my previously-purchased Android games? Couldn't find the answer to this I'm curious to hear what you all think about this as well!
