New details surrounding the Android-based console, Ouya, have surfaced on the good ol’ internet. According to Eurogamer, Ouya has signed a deal with OnLive. Through this partnership, the cloud gaming service will allow gamers to play games on the upcoming console and continue them on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices including tablets and smartphones.
Additionally, a prototype version of Ouya’s controller was revealed. I think it looks pretty neat, though I hope a more traditional D-pad is incorporated on the final design. Regarding the face buttons, the dev team explained, “We’re still deciding on the buttons. For now, we’ve stuck with the colored circles as placeholders. But don’t fret, we won’t leave out colorblind gamers.”
The Ouya console is becoming more and more real with every passing day. I’m pretty excited about it myself, and as a huge indie game nut, I really hope to see devs releasing more solid indie content on an actual console.
