GameStop head honcho J. Paul Raines is interested in the Ouya console. Apparently, the CEO thinks the platform is “cool” and would very much like to include it as part of GameStop’s ever-growing stock of video games consoles and tablet devices.
“We think Ouya’s cool,” Raines said in a statement to Joystiq. “We love the idea of open-source components. Everything we’ve read is great. There will be games developed for that stuff. So you’re going to see more of these open source type products, and we will be right in the middle of all of it.”
While Raines clarified that GameStop has no official announcement to make regarding the Ouya launch, his enthusiasm couldn’t be any more apparent. He went on to say that GameStop stocks all consoles and plans to “be a part of any console launch in the future.”
