    Hi gbatemp users

    I decided to create this thread because the OUYA comunity here is very rare... and i need to meet new gamers and developers who have this little awesome android gaming console!

    On this thread you can talk about OUYA games, Ouya future launch tittles, OUYA hacking and OUYA Modding (hardware) and maybe some online tournaments (like bombsquad or meltdown)

    I recomend you to get one! You can play any game from the old consoles (with a emulator) and you can play the normal android games (made for tablets/phones) and the android games made for OUYA (with controller support)!
    Its a great system! Great for indie developers (like me), we don't need to buy any kind of license to publish our games... And great for gamers because you can find some exclusive games (like amazing frog)

    I'm going to guess that the OP is talking about the console. Also, I'm surprised that the OUYA console does not have its own little section in the Android part of this forum. The console is fairly decent and has it's highs and lows.

    Best emulation console that doesn't need mods.

    I love my Ouya for local co-op games. The controller sucks, so I use PS3 controllers.

    Are you kidding me? The OUYA needs a ton of mods! Hell, I wrote the damn book on OUYA modding :P Just check my tutorials over at OUYA Forum

    It does need mods But it is maybe the only way to play an emu without modding it first (I was basically comparing a modded Wii vs ouya)

    The controller is great... it's just like the Xbox controller.

    I think it depends as some people (like me) don't like the Xbox controller and others who do sometimes don't like the build quality

    I personally don't care for the ps3 controller on android/ouya becasue of how it natively maps buttons (0 is accept for example) but atleast map able buttons help

    It works with PS3 controllers out of the box. It's just a bit hard to pair them. Fortunately pairing persists after a reboot, so it's a one time problem. See here: http://dayoftheouya.com/pairing-ps3-controller-with-your-ouya/

    I'm usually playing with 4 of these instead of the ouya controller. The PS4 controller I have works too, but it has to be plugged in.

    One thing that really annoys me about my Ouya is the update process. Maybe the problem is that my router is in the other room, but updating over wifi fails every time. I let it sit there for more than an hour and the progress was still at 10%. Apparently you can update via USB, but it's not easy at all.

    My favorite games are Bomb Squad and Towerfall. Now that these are out on PC, the console feels less necessary to me. On the other hand, we've also had a ton of fun playing No Brakes Valet and Hidden in Plain Sight.

    I like xbox controllers. I like PS3 controllers. I don't like the ouya controller. It feels cheap and I had some problems with input lag. Every time I play with a group of 4, no one wants to use it!

    To be fair the main console controllers cost more than the ouya controller does in terms of production costs but i could be wrong.

    In that regard, you are completely correct. The OUYA is a fun little box but it has a few major flaws that I hope OUYA Inc. solves in the long run.

    Really the madcats mojo is better it can play ouya and play store out of the box and has better specs plus its controllers are better and great with phones. The mojo is on sale for 150 with two controllers which is a way better deal than the 99 ouya.

    As a pure Android device MOJO is a better machine but that's as far as it goes. MOJO barely does Google Play well and there are still OUYA games that run better on native OUYA. If we don't see OUYA 2 soon, I'd settle for a model with better Bluetooth, WiFi and 2 GB of RAM.

    Yeah but rooting and edits make it better though but still your still probable better off just buying a shield or tablet and using a controller plus hdmi
