OUYA might have managed to push the console into some bad publicity instead.
OUYA was getting ready to push a large software update. In fact, they offered a bit of a preview earlier in the month. The good news has arrived though, that update has begun pushing to consoles. The folks at OUYA have dubbed this one the "Abominable Snowman" update and have it listed as being the "biggest update yet."
OUYA game console would be shipping with a refreshed controller. But it looks like the folks at OUYA have just unveiled a refresh that may be a bit more noticeable -- a new color console. Available for pre-order beginning today, the OUYA console is available in a Limited Edition White.
OUYA gaming console, which has only been on retail for less than a month, has undoubtedly started a new kind of Android gaming scene. But like with any pioneer or trendsetter, there will always be some things that it won't get right at first, such as the initial user interface for the system. That will, however, soon change once the new update rolls out that will subtly yet effectively change how the OUYA presents games.
Chromecast, supporting apps like Netflix can stream content from your Android device. Rumors of Android TV have yet to pan out. Miracast is lost in the shuffle, seemingly defeated by the advent of Google’s $35 dongle. Then there is Android gaming, a sector that has just started taking shape, and is seeing rapid expansion.
OUYA game console was going to be getting a bigger retail push in the US market. At the time there was mention of how the system would be heading to all 1,800 retail locations. And as part of that push, the packaging was going to be reworked to highlight and promote games and other content. Well, it looks like the outer package is not going to be the only thing changing with OUYA.
OUYA game console launched in the US market back in June. Since then the console has been available with a few retailers including GameStop, Target and Best Buy. The key with the retail availability though, none of those retailers had the console available in every location. Flash forward till the present day and it looks like Target is getting ready to make that move.
OUYA team mentioned that external storage support was an item that was in the works. This news came back in September and while it was encouraging, there was little detail provided other than it being an item that was being worked on. As for a timeline it was simply listed as "coming." Well, it looks like that time has arrived, for those who are willing to play in the beta space.
OUYA has recently announced plans to bring the game console to additional markets across Europe. The goal is for the console to begin arriving later this month. According to Gamasutra, this expansion will include a mix of Western and Eastern Europe, though as of now we have yet to see details on each and every market.
