Rumors: OUYA plans sale of company to Razer

Razer revealed earlier at CES 2015 its own take as Android gaming in the living room with the Forge TV, but its take isn't simply a box or controller that you hook up to a TV and press Play. Razer's idea is more of a whole ecosystem that includes the Forge TV itself, a couple of surprisingly good controllers, and even the software that runs inside. We got to test all of these ourselves to see just how much promise this latest attempt really holds.
