OUYA in review: First impression




Last year there was a mad hype around OUYA because the crowdfunding project was more or less the first pure Android game console. But they should be more than just another Android device, because there is a special Android interface, its own store and work closely with the developers of apps and games.

But how much potential this unit has a mini-game console with internet actually forced? To find out exactly what we have now got us a copy, many thanks to René Hesse of mobiFlip .
OUYA: Looks good, holds good to me

As always, there are of us first make a first impression, OUYA first unpacked and examined more closely. In total there is not much there, just the console, a power adapter and a controller. Everything fits together really well in the packaging of some smartphones, because the game console is really compact and also looks damn good. They definitely improved visually on each technology area and is itself quite alone very well there. Very good but not interesting for such a device is also the feel, OUYA has definitely high quality.

The controller as well, which apparently is made of plastic and metal. Unfortunately, it is not really a battery, but only two individual batteries that you have to replace if they are empty. Interesting will be safe here as long as two AA batteries can power the controller with power. The structure of the controller is not new, but actually so well-known for decades, but this has a special feature here. The OUYA controller has a touch pad that is on the front side (the black area), so you can control the console as a computer mouse.

Conclusion: Convincing first appearance

In brief one can describe the first few minutes OUYA. It is believed at least in my mind does not immediately impression that a few months ago only a sketch was sometimes less people who pursued the dream of a successful game console. Behind OUYA is not plugged Samsung, HTC, Microsoft or another giant, but this idea was only because of the interest of the community a reality. Rightly, as we find, for OUYA can awaken at least in the off state my interest for more.

More is there in the coming days and weeks, post your questions in the comments below please the article.
