Want to play your Android apps on the big screen but can’t get BlueStacks to work on your PC? Then fear not, for coming soon is a one-stop simple solution to getting your game gear from off your phone and onto your TV: the Ouya game console…
Designed by Yves Behar – the man behind the stunning Jawbone Jambox – the new console is set to retail at just US $99, will be Android powered to make full use of the unique open-source aspect of the Google OS and, although still at the concept stage at the moment, with Julie Uhrman of IGN as its founder and CEO, and former Microsoft VP of game publishing, Ed Fries, Color co-founder, Peter Phram, and Amol Sarva of Peek, now backing the project, it seems the Ouya will be a reality sooner rather than later.
According to its collective creators, the Ouya is “built to be hacked” with a dev kit thrown in with every box sold to help that along, allowing any developer to publish apps and thereby creating one huge free app gaming eco-system.
With a launch date yet to be announced, we’ll be eagerly awaiting this fresh development in the ever extending life of Android, so watch this space for more news on the Ouya as and when it happens!
