    I have purchased five pieces of software and plan to purchase more when they fix the damn storage situation!!! It does not encourages me to buy more games when I keep getting a damn message telling me that I have too many games on the console.

    Nice going...so 73% of the audience just bought it because it goes well with the furniture? :P


    On a more serious note: what are the amount of 'sales' (read: downloads) of the free games and emulators?

    EDIT: out of curiosity: exactly how can you pay for games? Is it just on credit cards, or do they accept online transations, paypal and the lot as well?

    (kind of likewise: I haven't bought a single game for my xperia play because they want me to have a credit card. Nice...but it's not going to happen. I'll wait until they accept paypal).

    The other 73% are probably still waiting for their OUYAs to be shipped.

    Let's clear some things up right now. Those of us who own OUYA consoles know that Android sticks exist. We CHOOSE the OUYA because it's simply better hardware. Secondly, to purchase Ouya games, you have a choice between using your credit/debit card or buying prepaid cards from retailers that sell Ouya consoles.

    The problem is pricing. Sadly I don't want to drop $15 on towerfall.

    I really hate how companies use % instead of actual numbers, because in those cases, % usually hides the negative reaction that actual numbers would have given.

    Shield is over priced and does not appeal to me. I buy things that I like, not what YOU think makes snese. Besides, you're talking to the co-host of a weekly Ouya YouTube show, do you honestly think that I'm going to ditch my OUYA??? LMAO

    Freemium, mostly (did I even use that word right? totally pulled it out of my ass. I don't even care).

    But having a demo counts as free. A person has to be able to play the game in some form without spending money. No one said they have to give people the whole game.
    It's actually kind of a nice system. No blind purchases. I think every console should employ this somehow, but obviously that's a bit of a pain in the ass. Oh well.

    Jesus Christ, if this is "better than expected" for you, then your expectations must have been apocalyptic.

    Ouya will always be the underdog.
    Till a new installment of Angry birds comes out.
    Then they'll sell like hotcakes.
