Ouya 2.0 And New Controller Confirmed

Posted October 30, 2013 by Ivan "Tech Curse" Mashkov in News

In a recent talk with Polygon the founder of Ouya inc., Julie Uhrman, confirmed that a new controller is coming to the android console along with the promised next “generation” microconsole: “The feel of the controller today is actually probably a lot better then in June. Our goal is to build a great controller. We wanted to build something that was ergonomic, that had great weight, that had a great feel, that offered developers a different way to develop games by including a touch pad in the design. We’re constantly going to work and iterate on the controller.” If the Ouya’s fans want to get their hands on the new controller, then they’d better steel themselves. The new Ouya controller will not have special packaging and will look like a normal Ouya controller: “You wouldn’t know until you bought it.”

The Ouya 2.0 is currently in development by the company, though they will begin work on it in earnest next year: “The software is constantly iterating because we want to make it constantly better. We don’t want to wait six months and then go boom here are all these new features and functionality For the hardware, we are looking at different chips. We are looking at what type of performance we want.”  It is likely to become available in 2014.

The Ouya, one of the first microconsole of the current and next generation, has encountered many issues, both after launch and now. The console has been criticized for trying to fill a niche that doesn’t exist, for having few games and for allowing, supposedly, its Free the Games Fund to be abused. It is true that the microconsole lacks mass market appeal, it has fewer games than major consoles and its hardware specs aren’t anything special. However the console has found its place in a relatively small community that loves the console and will, likely, upgrade to 2.0.
