The lights are on
Kickstarter darling Ouya announced that players will be able to stream games on the Android-based device using an OnLive app. The company also offered the first head-on shot of the controller. It's still a work in progress, but it should give you an idea of the direction they're going for.
Here's what OnLive general manager Bruce Grove has to say about its relationship with Ouya, and what it will mean to customers:
Ouya also released a nice picture of its controller, which you can see below. The company says it's still being worked on, so don't get too attached to it. In particular, they're trying to figure out a way to ensure that color-blind players won't be left out. Do you think they'll go with an XYAB configuration, or are they going to be bold and adopt a Square-Triangle-X-O arrangement?
Ouya has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success on Kickstarter. The project sought $950,000 in pledges to get it off the ground, and it's now exceeded $5.5 million--and it still has 12 days remaining. Have you backed this thing? Do you think there's any room for something like Ouya, or is it just another gaming fad?

This i will check out!!! cant wait!
not sold on this just yet
Ouya Controller hand cool
I backed it like 3 days ago. It was the first thing I ever did on Kickstarter, so it was my inaugural backing. I did the 99$ or more backing. I like that they don't charge your card until August 9th. It gives people the opportunity to get the money together and still reserve a copy. GIO turned me on to Rival Threads so I backed that as well. That game looks like a Vanillaware title which isn't a bad thing
I'm still not sure how I feel about this project.
