OUYA Launches New Console, All Black Exterior With a Jump in Storage

OUYA

A new OUYA Android-powered game console is on the market, blacked out, featuring few changes over the OUYA from last year. In the new model, which is priced at $129, it features 16GB of storage instead of 8GB, but still comes with the same NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. OUYA states that the controller received a lot of work, which hopefully addresses a few of the problems people had with the previous version, but we still had higher hopes for a “new version” of the console. 

No telling if OUYA is going to go ham on a revamped console later this year, maybe featuring a Tegra K1 or something with more than 1GB of RAM.

    I bought one as they were “hacker friendly” HAHAHA yeah right.. it does make a great XBMC box so now I have two that are dedicated XBMC boxes..

  • Adam Magie

    Maybe they’re waiting for the Tegra 5 before releasing a “new” version.

    huawei tron much better

  • Rand Paul 2016

    Tegra 4 or no deal

  • Dragonetti Surprise

    How about NOuya…

  • chris_johns

    they gotta throw a k1 and at least 2-3 gigs of ram in the ouya 2 for them to get any love

    • hkklife

      And double the storage to 32GB!

  • droidify

    After owning 2 devices with Tegra 3’s and watching them become unusable in under 12 months. I’m done with invidia.

    • Tirionfive

      That was probably due to the fact that the Manufacturer chose crappy flash mem, and it degraded over time faster. N7 (2012) has this problem. Provided the Tegra K1 has decent hardware partners, and those manufacturers choose good memory, it should help with the life-cycle of those products.

        Asus Nexus 7
        Asus TF201
        …..I think I see your point.

        • Kevin

          Those were the cheapest tablets on the market. Again, you get what you paid for.

          • droidify

            The transformer prime was not the cheapest tablet on the market. Mine was 599 so I’m not sure what you think you’re talking about. It was the first tablet with a quad core and the first with ICS so try Google before you show your expertise.

        • Tirionfive

          Asus did go with another Flash memory manufacturer in the 2013 n7.

      • Sirx

        Is that why my transformer infinity is a stuttering, laggy, homescreen-redrawing mess, no matter how many apps I greenify or how much space I free up?

    • Kevin

      You get what you paid for.

    • Blue Sun

      I’m done with nVidia for mobile devices. Their PC graphics cards are still beastly.

  • John Legere

    I love the black color, but at $129 no increase in specs? Tegra 3 is way old, and 1gb ram is nothing. Guess I’ll wait for Ouya 2.

      @disqus_Ov0xXT7Yc4:disqus I’d be surprised if they last long enough for version 2.

      • John Legere

        Me too. It’s obvious they are clueless

        • Spencer Walker

          I don’t why its so hard they just need to launch out a 2 with tegra 5 2gig ram and include Netflix Hulu YouTube from the start for 150 and games from Gameloft MADFINGER ECt,

          • michael arazan

            Does ouya allow Googly play or sideloading and compatibility of games from google play? Also does Ouya have or allow flash support and browsers for net access?

          • Spencer Walker

            No Google play unless you hack it sudeliading works you can even sideliad straight off out a browser not sure about flash meaning towards no BTW only used ouya maybe for like a week just not my thing

  • JRomeo

    ideally, playing a game on your smartphone which streams to the chromecast…. now that would be perfect.

    • Tirionfive

      Using your phone as a controller? Not a bad idea, but lacking in tactical feedback. Unfortunately, Chromecast has a decent delay for casting.

      • JRomeo

        that delay could be eliminated if the smartphone screen was black (meaning you cannot see the game on both smartphone and tv, and instead see it on your TV only. perhaps there could be a virtual joystick on the smartphone or something to use for controlling the game which is cast to the TV. and as for tactical feedback, that’s not a problem. It does not lack tactical feedback if you cause the smartphone to vibrate whenever you push a certain virtual joystick or whatever action the game developer desires.

        • JMonkeYJ

          There would still be the delay from entering an input to seeing the result on-screen.

          • michael arazan

            Going to try out the allshare cast from samsung, most miracast reviews are hit or miss. I got a gs3 replacement from asurion for a GNex.

            I always used hml/ hdmi adapters, they work great in mirroring if they are a name brand, but will only work for about 6 months till they crap out. Don’t buy cheap chinese ones cause they always turn on and off randomly.

    PC, Xbox One, or PS4 for me. Put this in the trash.

    • Tirionfive

      It wasn’t that bad when I had one, but it just didn’t justify the content that was needed. I sent it back to amazon because even if you told it to power off, sometimes the CPU/GPU would stay active and the whole thing would be too hot to touch. I liked it for emulating Nintendo games, but it did that kinda half-assed too.

    • JoshGroff

      3DS like a boss, who has time to sit around and play on a TV?

    • Brandon Golway

      I was so excited for the original and then when it actually came out and was reviewed and it was mentioned that it didn’t even support the play store I was highly disappointed.

  • Tirionfive

    16GB ROM ;)

      Acronyms are for the weak!
