Ouya.jpgOrdered myself an OUYA  game console today, July 12, 2013.  Have been on the fences for a while now about buying one.  Heard good and bad about it.  It has been sold out at Amazon.ca two days after it come out back on June 25, 2013.  Just about every day since then I would go back to its page to see if they were back in stock and to see what people were saying.  To my surprise they were back in stock.  So I jumped on that.  Didn’t even thing about it, just ordered one.   Did have a birthday a week or so ago and still didn’t buy myself any thing.   So this can be my birthday present to myself.  Since today is Friday it will not ship until Monday.  I choose the free shipping option so they are saying the estimated time of arrival is between July 23 to 26.  That not too bad.  Have ordered lots of things from Amazon and they have showed my much early then then the estimated time of arrival.  Will be back with another update when I get it.

OUYA

Ouya.jpgOnce again talking about the OUYA.  It is now for sale.  It was released June 25, 2013.  The only place you can buy it in Canada (that I know of) is off of Amazon.ca.  Still thinking about buy one.  Do have a birthday coming up so thinking that this is what I should by myself.  The only thing is Amazon is “temporarily out of stock”.   This is two days have it came out.  So my guess there are a lot of people what one.  So I will look back on my birthday and see if they are back in stock.  In the mean time I will have some look at reviews.  Know there is some bad press out there on it.  Because some of the early Kickstarter backers still haven’t received theirs.  They were told they would get them before they went on sale to the masses.  So they are going on the internet and bad mouth it.  Just have look past that stuff to find a real reviews.

Ouya.jpgYes, yet again talking about the OUYA.  Because I am still thinking about betting one.  Might buy myself one for my birthday.   You will be able to buy one starting June 25, 2013.  After watching this newest review > here or below I can see how some of the games look and play.  If you head over to the OUYA website you can see a list of the games that are available to download. Looked at this list a week or so ago.  It has gotten bigger.  One of the things I was surprised to see is there are bunch of game emulators on there.  So if you download the emulator and “find” some roms you can play the old games.  Seen emulators for Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Gameboy/colour, Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64 and NEO GEO.  Not sure if they will be there forever.  Can see lawyers having some thing to say.  However it is pretty cool.  If I do decided to get one I will be back with pictures and updates.

OUYA Release Pushed Back

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2013 by getbent57

Ouya.jpgBack in March it was announced that the OUYA would be released June 4, 2013.  Well there is some good news bad news about the OUYA today.  The good new first over at there > blog it says they have raised $15 million in funding from new investors.  That is good because the will be able to make more OUYA’s and what not.  But here is the bad news the release date has been pushed back to June 25, 2013.  It is only three weeks.  They all so say that this will not affect early backers.

Still on the fence about getting one.  Sure the OUYA itself will be great.  Just not sure about the games yet.  Know there will be lots of small phone/tablet like games.  Some quick pick up and play ones.  That would be fine for a little bit of time.  I would like to see some games with more to them.  If there was a well made COD clone or a full size action RPG I can see the OUYA taking off.

OUYA June 4 2013

Ouya.jpgIt has been announced today (March 29, 2013) that the OUYA will be in stores to buy June 4, 2013.  The people that backed the Kickstarter campaign have or will be receiving theirs soon.  Every interested in getting one but want to wait until here are some reviews out.  Did a search on YouTube not much here yet but sure with time there will be all kinds.  Did find a first look at the retail version by CNET > here or below.  They all so have a nice article with lots more info.  You can check that out > here.   One of the cool things about it is you can use it as a development kit.  Make your game then load the game on it and try it out.  That might be some thing fun to try out.  The controller uses two AA batteries.  What is different about this than other controllers is.  The face plates on the controller come off and the batteries go on each side of the handles.

The biggest thing is all the games are free to try.  Which is  great since I think most of the game on there will be pretty crappy.  That is why I am in wait and seen mode.  There will be some good and bad games.  Sure there will be lots of phone/tablets games.  They are fine but not what I am looking for.  Looking for some games with some depth.  Time will tell.  Will be back at some point talking again about the OUYA.

Ouya.jpgTalking about the OUYA once again.  It is about four months way from being in store.  It is set to launch June 2013.  No actual day in June has been set yet.  The lady that created this new console, Julie Uhrman  has been making some media rounds.  This past week she was at the SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) and a few other place.  The hype is building.  Still interested in getting one.  But still going to wait and see what people have to say then the come out.  Like the idea all the games well be free to try before buying.   Just wonder if they will have pre-paid cards to buy.  Something like the PSN or the Xbox live money cards.   All so like the idea if you need more space you can to store game you can plug in an external hard drive.   Will be keeping a close eye on this product.

OUYA In June

Ouya.jpgTalking about the OUYA again.  Have some good news to share.  It turns out it will be out in June, 2013.  You can still pre-order on their website.  Was reading some articles about it on Gamespot.com.  In the states it will be available in box stores like GameStop, Best Buy and Target as well as online through Amazon.  Got thinking, wonder if it would be on Amazon.ca.  Took a look and sure enough it is > here.   The best part is still only $100.00.  Thought it would cost more here so that is nice to see.  Still on the fence about getting one.  Think I will wait till there are some reviews on it as well as the games.   The other article I was reading on Gamespot > here.  They are saying here will be a new version every year.  As parts become cheaper and tech changes happen.  thought this was a stupid idea at first.  Then they say all the games will be backwards compatible.  Then if you do upgrade they say the games are tied to your user account not the machine.  Going to take a wait and seen stance.   But I am very interested.
