Ouya.jpgI has been over a year since I have last turned on my OUYA.  Bought it about two years ago (July 2013).  Back then thought it was pretty cool.  Still do just not to use every day or months even.  Read back in April (2015) the company was for sale.  The other day game accessory/peripheral maker Razer as bought them out.  They have their own Android based products.  Not sure all the details yet.  Do know the OUYA store will be re-branded as Cortex for Android TV.  They are saying > here,

“In the near future, Razer will be providing existing OUYA users with a clear path of migration to the more advanced Forge TV micro-console and Serval controller bundle. Razer’s intention is to allow OUYA users to bring their games, controllers, and accounts to the Cortex TV platform on the Forge micro-console, advancing the experience of Android gaming on TV that they have previously enjoyed. Additionally, Razer is planning deep product discounts for incoming OUYA users to purchase Razer hardware, and a spate of freebies, giveaways, and promotions to enjoy on their new Forge consoles.”

I still have money left in my OUYA account.  Not sure if will lose it all ounces all this migration takes place.  Can’t see myself buying another micro console.  Think at some point there will be an email going out to OUYA users about the details.
