All New Ouya Announced

White as the new snow!

Many have predicted that the Ouya, the $99 android microconsole, is in a lot of trouble and occupying a minuscule niche in the console market. However naysayers should be reminded that not only is the current version of the microconsole out and in the hands of players, but the Ouya 2.0 is currently in development. Now fans of the microconsole will be able to buy their friends and loved ones a special white version with double the memory of the standard Ouya. The white Ouya is coming out on December 19th and can be preordered from Ouya.tv and Amazon. Anyone who preorders before December 8th is guaranteed to get it before the holiday season.

The Ouya microconsole has been criticized a lot for the lack of the massive libraries of games that we’ve come to expect from video game consoles, like the PS3 and Xbox 360. However indie developers appear to enjoy working with both the team behind the Ouya and the hardware itself. The microconsole has made a name for itself by giving gamers access to a wide variety of titles (at last count over 500 games are available on the Ouya). Despite the console being no more powerful than your average smartphone or tablet, it has become a part of many gamers entertainment centers.

As an owner of the Ouya microconsole I would say that the best reason to get yourself the console is to get access to the indie titles on it. Many of these games are available on other platforms, however if your are a console gamer, then the Ouya is the best way to up your daily dose of indie titles. The price point is very low when compared with other current and next generation consoles. The final verdict – buy it if you ever have the $99 to spare.

This is the Japanese Tech Curse, who enjoys GTA way too much and need to lose quite a few pounds. I love open world and I love simulators, so laugh all you want. I am RRR112 on the PSN and Ouya and JTC2008 on Steam, so check me out and let's play!
