    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.
    I'll give that a go this weekend if you like. Is there already a decent Amiga emulator out for Android that you recommend I try?

    Gonna give MAME a go over the weekend and see if I can get this HyperSpin theme working on it.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    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.
    Hah. It's not a scam (it almost was, they had pretty much run out of money until recently), but it is a piece of shit. The complaints racking up about its shoddiness are very amusing. Wi-Fi issues, the controllers are crap, the box overheats...

    Also interesting that everyone is using it for emulation or sideloading other Android apps. Their business plan relies on making 30% from software sales, but that's not going to happen if you're just playing SNES games. So far the conversion rate for developers appears to be well under 1%.

    If your tea gets cold just leave it on top of your OOOUUYYAAA to warm up again.

    You can do that on the 360 with the official SWOS XBLA title!

    Once again - you lot are aware, aren't you, that a 35 Android stick from China works brilliantly as an emulation box, right? Full access to the Google Play store & all your existing purchases, too, unlike the Ouya.

    Mouse, keyboard control as standard on Android 4.1 upwards, PS3 DS3s which work natively over USB (and incidentally charge the pad), hell, even the USB Competition Pro I bought a few years back.

    And yes, there are two (free) Android Amiga emulators which come to mind. One of them supports AGA & A1200 emulation.

    This was all pointed out before Retroid, and dismissed because Tegra 3 indie gaming revolution big three blah blah blah.

    No ethernet Retroid. I'm looking for something that might replace the Apple TV box.

    I want to support local business and since the Ouya is made in Swindon, that's where my money goes!

    @mrpon Ouya doesn't have the monopoly on ethernet. They're just a rebadged, more expensive generic Android box with terrible controllers & Google Play access removed.

    No, it's not supported. You can try sideloading the APK but it doesn't sound like that's been too successful so far, and there may be issues with DRM on apps you've purchased.

    @Deckard1 They have their own store where they take a cut, that's part of their business model. Fortunately quite a few Android games & apps already support hardware controllers so they don't need that 'filter' for them to work.

    Never said they did Retroid, just explaining why your 35 stick wasn't for me. Fortunately, I have all the apps as apks so the lack of Google Play isn't an issue for me.

    YMMV :)

    Just pointing out that there are cheaper & easier alternatives if people just want Android on their telly.

    If people are wanting an Ouya for Ouya stuff, fine.

    If they want a cheapy emulation & Android box, well... /Scratches like a DJ

    The only one I know of is UAE4Droid.
