    Basically this thing does what my hacked xbox did in 2003.
    Except it had better games.

    OUYA IS COMING TO E3!

    Well, sort of. Here's their venue:





    They don't roam with the pack, they're living life on the edge, so everyone meet in the parking lot across the street to experience the new console that is going to shake the industry to its core. Look for the shifty guy in a stained coat.

    Is that an Ouya or a box of expensive cream cakes.

    So yeah, this thing. Thought my Justin Beiber fan club membership had come early actually.



    But no, underneath this garish flyer was this...



    ..and underneath that was all the cable gubbins. Not plugged it in yet, but the console feels nice, sturdy and well made about the size of a credit card. Pad not so good, feels a bit slippery in the hands, buttons are hard and the triggers have a twitchy travel to them.

    Next stage: plugging it in!

    EG should present this as a live auto-refresh feed with supplemental chat room

    Mine took over an hour to upgrade the firmware. There are no games currently available worth playing other than FF3, which I have already completed.

    Back in the box it goes!

    How far up your bottom can you get
    a) the console
    b) the controller?

    How well can the controller be used as a Batarang style device to fight crime?

    But...it is the Stradivarius of controllers!

    Well sideloading works well. The [link=http://s15.postimg.org/4c8yo693f/2013_05_29_22_37_20.jpg">EG app works albeit with quirky navigation and I'm currently playing

    Don't you dare say something good about it! PearsOfAnguish won't have anything else to do with his life if it turns out this thing he has no intention of buying isn't ; a scam, a piece of shit, a rip off.

    Bless him.

    And now Marvin the ZX Spectrum emulator on and running lovely.

    XBMC is next on the list Inso.

    GBCoid sainty, GBC game remember. I use TigerGBA for GBA stuff, haven't tried that yet.

    XBMC is on and runs. Navigation again is pretty much instant, certainly a lot better than the ATV experience I last had. Found my NAS no problems, however a 1080p mkv was jittery - possibly because it was updating the library.

    Received mine yesterday as well (had to pay 16 customs on delivery...). The OS is slugglish, and the current line-up of games is so bad it's hilarious. But that's not what I got it for, I got it for creating a small, cheap, instantly accessible dedicated box of emulation goodness in my front room.

    So far so good on that front, there are already N64, SNES and NES emulators in the official store, and I had a great session on Mario Kart 64 and Street Fighter II Turbo yesterday :D Works like a dream, and today I will organise and sort out my whole collection of ROMs for it. PSX, Megadrive and Mastersystem emulators are apparently easy to side-load and work well, but I haven't tried that yet. Word on the street is that it's also quite easy to get 360 or PS3 pads working with it, which is good news as the Ouya pad isn't great.

    I'll also be using the Ouya for streaming services, though that's not been very successful so far... I tried side-loading the Netflix apk but it's buggy as hell (mainly navigation issues), and too annoying to use properly. Netflix is my service of choice, so that's not good, I'm hoping some official support happens one day (or some clever chap creates a modified apk just for Ouya). Like mrpon said though, XBMC works great, so that's a good sign.

    I appreciate what people say about being able to do this on an Android phone or on a PC (for emulation), but that is nothing like having a dedicated box under the TV in the entertainment room. For $99 to have my entire childhood gaming collection ready at the click of a button, I'm happy with that. If the media side of things improves, if side-loading other Android apps is easy, and if decent Ouya exclusive games do eventually happen, then I think this is good little device for a niche audience.

    All in all, the signs are promising for the reason I purchased this thing.

    Did you mess around with the dev tool side of things? Wondering how user-friendly they are for when mine finally gets dispatched.

    Any news on Amiga emulation?

    If I can play Sensible World of Soccer with a smooth frame rate then I'll be all over this.

    I managed to get SWOS working ok on the Cannoo (after overclocking it) but it still wasn't perfect.
