OUYA game approvals will be quick and mirror the mobile model

We recently learned about how the OUYA game console was planning to take the mobile approach in terms of future console releases, and well, it appears as if game approvals will also be taking a similar path. The details are again coming from OUYA CEO Jane Uhrman who recently commented about the process. She didn't go into specifics, however she did offer a quick summary as well let everyone know that the process will be kicking off later this month.

OUYA promising a new game console each year

It looks like the OUYA game console will be following the model we often see with mobile phones. That is to say, it looks like they have plans to release a new console each year. The details are coming out of the DICE 2013 conference where CEO Julie Uhrman said that their strategy will be "very much similar to the mobile strategy."

GameStick Kickstarter campaign closes with nearly $650k in funding

The GameStick console launched on Kickstarter back in early-January and since then it seems to have attracted quite a bit of attention. In fact, the game console attracted so much attention that the initial funding goals we quickly meet and additional perks were added as new funding levels were reached. All things considered, except for one small issue that resulted in the GameStick Kickstarter going down for a few hours, they seem to have done rather well.

OUYA console April deliveries close to selling out

If you are still considering the purchase of an OUYA game console, you may want to make that purchase sooner rather than later. Or more specifically, make that purchase before Monday, February 4, 2013. The details are coming by way of a recent status update from OUYA and note that if you don't place your order before then -- you will not have your console in April.

NVIDIA and Nyko partner to bring PlayPad controllers for Tegra Tablets

If one area of gaming has seen huge increases lately it's been in the mobile space. Thanks to NVIDIA and their Tegra-powered devices we've seen some awesome games hit Android smartphones and tablets. Yesterday they announced a new partnership with peripheral makers Nyko to bring wireless game controllers to market optimized for Tegra devices.

MOGA combines universal Bluetooth game pad and dev tools

I'll just come out and say it: touchscreen controls suck for action-packed, complex games like, say, N.O.V.A. 3. That's what makes the Xperia PLAY popular despite mid-range hardware, and why so much energy is expended on getting existing controllers to work with Android. MOGA isn't the first controller we've seen specifically for Android, but it does appear to be one of the best thought-out around, and it already works with games from Gameloft, Sega and others.

ThinkGeek plays to the emulation crowd with 8-Bitty Bluetooth controller

Thus far, Android has proven to be a fantastic platform for classic game emulation, especially if your tastes lead you to prefer games made before 1995 or so. But try as we might with grips and even specialized hardware like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, there's just nothing like a classic game controller, with buttons you can count on one hand and a non-existent approach to ergonomics. ThinkGeek, long-time nostalgia enabler and supplier of geeky tools to the poor and the gentry, intends to make your gaming sessions authentic with the iCade 8-Bitty Bluetooth controller.
