Ouya 2...ya

this will not sell >_>

Why announce it this early? That's two years away from now.

Is this a joke? 'Cause it sure looks like it

Looks like a fancy children's toy.

This has actually some cool ideas. Like the quality control and the no to DLC and Microtransactions. While I'm OK with well made DLC, the companies could just sell the DLC as a new standalone game (like Xenoblade 2 and Torna). But limiting it to family friendly games? Switch is from germanies USK approved as a system with a complete working age restriction system, they could implement something similar. Digital only games are OK, but why the price limit? It limits the grandness of experiences, you'll not get a Skyrim for this price. Why not a hybrid concept. With digital only it would work very well. A mix of strange ideas. I think they limit their chances too much.

Has no chance at all. Every game has a seal of approval? No DLC? Yeah right ..


JWeinCom (on 22 October 2018)

I'm... confused... The idea that all the games will be exclusive is kind of cool. But, how do you convince devs to make an exclusive game (or an exclusive version) on a niche platform, where they can only charge up to 7.99? Sure you have tons of games at that price point, but for mobile where your potential audience is in the hundreds of millions. Linking it to a console that, (if we're going to be irrationally optimistic), may sell ten million units seems... insane.

Talk about a next generation jump. Sony and Xbox need to take a page out of their book and wait on gen 9 until the tech makes this significant of a jump.

Whoever funds this is going to feel palpitations in 2020


Ganoncrotch (on 23 October 2018)

that's optimistic.... you think they'll still have a heartbeat!

List with games?


Shadow1980 (on 22 October 2018)

Well, it certainly looks like what I'd expect the Intellivision to look like re-imagined for the present day. I'll have to see more of it and an exact games list before I make any decisions, but I grew up on the Intellivision so this has the potential to hit me in the nostalgia button.

This gives Coleco Chameleon vibes.
