    Oh boy. One company that failed to turn out a successful Android home console was bought by another company that turned out a failure of a home Android device. Together, maybe they can make one truly mediocre product.

    I think this is interesting. One company lacked the proper hardware and the other lacked proper software. This could be fun!

    Sweet now they'll trick out the Ouya with sick LEDs and like 15,000 buttons and sell it for about $2000 more than it currently goes for.

    also they'll stick some solid DRM on it.

    I highly doubt that we will see new features on the OUYA hardware. Razer is keeping the OUYA's lights on until August of 2016 in hopes that everyone would have migrated to the Forge TV by then. I'll most likely migrate sometime in December.

    Im thinking im not interested getting a new android console for now... because my ouya can do everything what i need... A decent gaming machine with cool mediacenter features!
    Me and some devs are trying to make a complete backup of the store... because we want to make a Ouya alternative store just in case if razer closes the official one.
