Concept device is “built to be hacked”.
Start-up company Ouya has got some serious weight behind its Android-powered games console device.
The company’s AngelList page says:
- Open, accessible game console for the biggest market in games: TV.
- Any developer can publish games, just like mobile or social games today (but like no other console game platform). Orders of magnitude less expensive to develop.
- Inexpensive enough for every consumer to buy, $99, and all the games are free to play. Every console is a dev kit; build peripherals, root the system – built to be hacked.
- Built with Android as embedded OS.
The concept imagery shows the console showcasing games like Samurai Vengeance II and Madden NFL 12.
