OUYA Last Days

As many know (or not) that the OUYA is dead.  Razer is shutting down the severs on June 25, 2019.  I had some money left in my account.  So decided to turn it on for the first time in about five years.  Put new batteries in the controller, plug it in and tuned it on.  Was a big surprised there was no system software update.  Took a look at the games lists there were many that have been on there since day one still on the main page.  All so many others.  Did buy a few games.  Which I haven’t tired yet.  This is because I am working on make some videos on the OUYA and those games for the I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry YouTube channel.  So keep your eye out for those.

OUYA Is Dead

I fell for the hype when the OUYA was first announced.  Bought one back in July 2013.  Liked it at first.  There was some fun to be had with it.  After a while the games on it were not so great.  So put it a side.  Then in 2015 the game accessory/peripheral maker Razer bought the OUYA people out and kept it going.  Well until June 25, 2019.  That is when they are shutting off the servers.  Do have some money left on my account.  Will have to hook it back up to see what what games might be worth the money.  Once the site is shut off the money will be gone.
