OUYA: Evolving how games are designed and discovered.
Obsessed With Delivering Great Games
Because it was built by gamers, for gamers, OUYA is more open and accessible than any other console available. This allows award-winning designers and top independent talents to flex their development muscle free of big publisher bureaucracy, granting the OUYA community with front-row seating for a creative renaissance in new and inventive gameplay experiences.
From that first boot-up onward, the gaming options beam down in real-time, lighting up the big-screens with players’ favorite vintage games and characters to never-before-seen new ones. And given every single game is free-to-try, players can dabble and discover in any genre they want, from shooters and action-adventures to RPGs, platformers, sports games, puzzles, etc.
But here’s what we mean by “etcetera”
•OUYA Exclusives: Designers are already delivering completely exclusive experiences for the OUYA community by developing games that will appear nowhere else (nope, not even eBay).This will include the disco-infused dungeon crawler Soul Fjord, as well as Tripwire Interactive's exclusive new spinoff of the popular monster-survival franchise, Killing Floor.Need more cooperative gameplay? Just pull down TowerFall, a 4-person archery combat platformer that'll transport you back to gaming's glory days. •Bridging the Big-Screen Gap:Growing u, we all played games on the computer we just knew belonged on the TV. Well, OUYA's busting open that border to all, finally delivering fan-favorite games where they belonged all along: The living room big-screen. Exclusively on OUYA, you can play classics like Final Fantasy III as well as new games such as ChronoBlade and Arena of Heroes. And cause you're on the couch, you can finally do it in HD -- and should you so desire, comfortably in your underwear.•Big Screen Resurrections:Um, you can stop shoving outdated cables into that HDMI port now. Your OUYA is also a little baby time machine, delivering all your old favorite games on-demand for free. •Enhanced Gameplay Experiences:Sometimes those triggers just aren't enough. Sometimes you need a tablet or a Bluetooth headset to really command your game and talk smack to your competition. OUYA's suite of enhanced games lets players tap a wide-range of third-party accessories into the action with the push of a button. In the party game You Don't Know Jack, that means buzzing in your answers on your trusty iPhone or iPad. OUYA: This little box has big dreamsRest assured, that little box has a slew of stuff in it. For S99, you'll get the sleek OUYA console, one wireless controller with removable faceplates, an HDMI cable, power adaptor, and even a pair of batteries.But here's the thing: That's just the start. Ever-evolving, the OUYA community will continue developing, refreshing the content on your console to ensure your big-screen is never short on great games or new inventive experiences.Here's how OUYA's hardware, controller, and software come together for the ultimate gaming trifecta:•The Guts. The Glory.OUYA comes outfitted with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via USB). And after powering up instantly, OUYA plays nice with your monster HDTV via HDMI.It's also tiny. To be imprecise, OUYA's about the size of a jar of peanut butter, which we enthusiastically endorse as a nutritious mid-game snack.•Your Trusty Sidekick. Enhancing every game with precise, responsive feedback, a touchpad for new dimensions of gameplay, and 16 buttons to mash as you please, the OUYA controller is as sleek as she is sturdy, and precisely what happens when you tell the world's most talented designers (and hopelessly obsessed gamers) to create the controller of their dreams. Connect up to four of these bad boys for multiplayer mayhem.•Pamper Your Pixels With Apps.All that 1080p glory isn't just for gaming. OUYA brings all your favorite apps to the big screen, streaming shows, movies, and music directly into the living room thanks to partnerships with Hulu, Twitch.tv, and TuneIn, just to name-drop a few. Beyond new games, OUYA's always hoarding more apps, too, so you,ll always be stocked for the entertainment apocalypse. •Get Coding. Get Famous.No all-seeing eyes, here, And no DRM nonsense, either. Rather, what lies inside of OUYA is simply the most open, accessible video game system ever developed. Housed in sandblasted aluminum, the tiny little console has nothing to hide, as every unit is an open, hackable development kit. So open it up and play doctor if you'd like. When you develop a game, you're free to sell it right on OUYA.
