OUYA

Razer officially announces OUYA acquisition, but what about the hardware?

We’ve heard rumors, and then confirmations, but now we get it straight from the horse’s mouth – gaming outfit Razer has acquired parts and elements of the business of OUYA, that little micro-console that broke Kickstarter when it launched. As you can see from the announcement, it is not a full acquisition – Razer will not be acquiring OUYA’s hardware, specifically the console and the controller that made OUYA famous in the first place.

Rumors: OUYA plans sale of company to Razer

When OUYA came out of its developers’ heads and into its very successful Kickstarter campaign, people were sure it was going to be a surefire hit that will compete with standard gaming consoles by bringing casual gaming to big screen TVs. In a sense, OUYA came out too early for its own good. After the initial rush, OUYA has struggled to create a market for itself, especially with Android TV offerings now abounding. It has put itself up for sale, and rumor says gaming outfit Razer is interested.

OUYA in trouble, company needs a serious buyer

No official announcement has been made by the company or any of its executives yet but Ouya seems to be in trouble. An email was recently leaked, believed to have a mention of the company being in debt and in need of a buyer. CEO Julie Uhrman was said to have sent this information to advisors and investors. This was after the Ouya-Alibaba deal worth $10 million was launched. Alibaba has invested in Ouya, in hopes that the latter will be saved.

OUYA reaches 1,000 games milestone

It seemed almost like an impossible dream, but they've definitely done it. OUYA has just marked its 1,000th game, reaching that number that any non-mainstream gaming platform can only dream of. It was an achievement two years in the making, and one that perhaps almost never came to be. OUYA and its community definitely have one more thing to be thankful for this holiday.

OUYA releases system update, encourages more user-made content

You remember OUYA, right? That micro gaming console which runs a tweaked version of Android Jelly Bean – well, they just released a system update today, officially called “Chickcharney”. The core of the update concentrates on encouraging users to develop content that they can throw back to the OUYA community – plus some bug fixes and polishes on the side, of course.

Excited for Android TV? Try it unofficially on the OUYA

The promise of Android on TVs has been a long and almost unreachable dream but that journey may now be at an end with Google's formal Android TV push. But while we are still waiting for the Nexus Player, the first Android TV device that isn't actually a TV, to ship, many are excited, if not curious, what this new "lean back" living room experience offers on the table. If you have an OUYA gaming console, however, you might not need to wait that long, provided you're willing to jump through hoops to get to your destination.
