    OUYA & Valve Exclusive Partnership - RUMOR

    Just thought I'd share this. I have no clue how valid it is

    Donald Conrad just tweetedthis:

    Rumor: Valve and Ouya to unveil exclusive partnership at #ReinerCon. @Andrew_Reiner refuses to confirm.

    And then I asked for more details:
    And the response

    @OUYA_Forum @Andrew_Reiner I can't reveal that! You will just have to wait for #ReinerCon


    Andrew Reiner is an editor for Game Informer. Could be something interesting brewing or it could just be nothing.

    E3 2013 2027 whenever Valve feels like it: Gabe announces Half Life 3 is an Ouya exclusive.

    That would certainly be one way to increase the half-life of the Ouya.

    Because Valve games can totally run on the Ouya guys.

    I am crossing my fingers for the next crysis on the ouya!

    Plus just imagine, all valve games will be free with hat purchases only.

    Actually, an Ouya Crysis is way more likely than a Valve game on Ouya. Crytek already announced they were going full retard (aka free-to-play), so I guess there is a chance ;P
    Valve and Ouya together is not going to happen, obviously. I don't even know how people can take such a rumor seriously. Ouya is failing already (sales- and review-wise).

    I'm talking about the disappointing pre-orders.

    Ask yerself this... How many are interested in the Ouya that didn't fund its Kickstarter? Of this potential userbase, 63,416 already paid for their Ouyas, so how many actual sales can they look forward to? Remember that these Android devices never actually sell well and nobody is going to buy a cheap £100 phone-in-a-box that can only play stuff that's already on their phones when there are PS4s and Xbox 720s to save up for.

    The hardware in the OUYA is already outdated even before it has been released, my phone is more powerful.. I really don't see this being true

    It is my firm contention that the ouya will find itself being rather irrelevant in the next couple of years.

    It would also be a portal to a new market, further increasing that half-life. However, the market would probably be angered and would launch a counter-strike that is directed towards the Valve team's fortress. Afterwards, only one person would survive the market's day of defeat after being left 4 dead by his friends. Even then, he would spend the rest of his life being dota-d on by a hot nurse and ricocheting a ball against a wall.



    Beat that, Soul Gahars Guild Guildilocks.

    Ricochet 2, calling it, it's coming.

    You can now begin wetting yourself in anticipation.

    Great, now they will give some hat or misc item in TF2 if I sign into Steam on the Ouya.

    Gotta buy a damn Ouya, I guess.
