OUYA getting backlash with the “Free the Games” fund

OUYA first announced the "Free the Games" fund back in mid-July. The program was created to entice developers to bring games to the OUYA platform and later launched in August. The idea seemed simple enough, OUYA would match funds (up to $1 million) for game developers that launched and successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign with at least $50,000 in funding. Anyway, it seems a few of those participating in the fund were not playing entirely by the rules.

GameStick game console to finally ship in September

Majority of Android gamers are probably familiar with the OUYA gaming console which is probably one of the most successful technology-related Kickstarter so far. Some, however, might also be aware of another rather similar Kickstarter console named GameStick. After months of delays, the device might finally land in the hands of backers and buyers by the middle of September.

XBMC app arrives in the OUYA store

We have seen XBMC up and running on the OUYA game console before. A demo surfaced way back in March that showed the software running and how it was controlled using the OUYA remote. That build was being shown on a developer unit OUYA and came by way of Nathan Betzen, who is part of the XBMC team. Well, flash forward till today and it looks like installing XBMC on your OUYA has gotten just a bit easier.

BlueStacks adds five new developers ahead of GamePop console launch

The Android game console market seems to have several players at the moment. Perhaps the best know is OUYA, but there is also the GameStick, GamePop, GamePop Mini and others. Th GamePop is from BlueStacks, the same company that has been allowing users to run Android apps on a Mac or Windows computer. That aside, it looks like the folks at BlueStacks have recently announced five new developer partners.

OUYA offers Kickstarter backers a leet apology

The folks at OUYA have come forward with an apology and credit for some of the Kickstarter backers. The details of this offer include a mention about how "it wasn't OK that some of you" received the OUYA after it landed on store shelves. Basically, the OUYA team is apologizing that retail availability began before all the Kickstarter backers received their units. And just to drive the point home, the OUYA team has referred to this group as their "most loyal supporters."

OUYA Game Console Review

Our living rooms and bedrooms are dominated by Microsoft and Sony with the Xbox and Playstation, but OUYA is aiming to change that. The $99 Android-powered game console fits in the palm of your hand, runs an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and is loaded with Android games and ports to take over your gaming. Or can it? Being the most successful crowd-funded device from Kickstarter to date, we're taking a closer look at the OUYA Game Console.

OUYA “Free the Games” fund arrives to entice game developers

The folks at OUYA are once again talking games. Except this time around they are looking putting some money up in an effort to further attract developers. This is being launched as the "Free the Games" fund and it means OUYA is putting up $1 million to help turn "ideas into a reality." Basically, assuming game developers can meet some criteria, the folks at OUYA will give them some money to further their work.
