A new OUYA each year might not be the best idea.

- Hmm this will be interesting...new OUYA's might make people annoyed/frustrated that new ones come out maybe too often? It's like with iPad's, a new one comes out when they buy itFeb 7, 2013
- , the reason isn't lack of fragmentation, it's just that consoles are simple and cheap. Gaming PCs require a certain level of expertise to tweak and money to burn. One could argue that the lack of fragmentation keeps the cost low, but that would just be BS.Feb 7, 2013
- Might not be a good idea. You may want to stop think in the box and get away from the metality of Sony and Microsoft. If they can bring out new ideas and if software again pushes the hardware this will be the way it needs to be. Having the same console for 7-8 years and just buying it to need a new accessory to play a game (a single game is some cases) is last year. Also not much different if the consoles stay that they $100 price point.Feb 7, 2013
- Though I agree with the increased frequency of hardware releases, annually is a bit much--it may be counter-intuitive, as many people like myself will not buy each iteration. Skipping OUYA consoles might kind of be like skipping movie sequels. I'm not going to see part 3 if I didn't see part 2 or 1.
I'm tired of the fragmentation argument. That's the FUD that Apple and Microsoft like to feed people, to corner them into their monolithic business models. If fragmentation is a concern--and releasing new hardware causes fragmentation, why don't you nay sayers just stick to your Pentium Windows 95 machines and shut up.Feb 7, 2013
- Yes but look at it as they have done for years. Each come out with a new accessori tha cost in the ball park of $100-150 a year. I think as long as the Games and drive the upgrades this will work. If the games run just as good on last years model then your correct why upgrade. But if the price point stay's at 100 won't be much different. I mean I upgrade my phone every year and kids get the old one. This may work same way. New one in living room kids get last years model.
And fragmentation I totally agree it is a non issue for users. It is an issue on the development side but only if the developer wants it to be.Feb 7, 2013
- New hardware options are a good thing people. Sitting happily with a box of aging hardware to "avoid fragmentation" is silly. You've been brainwashed.Feb 7, 2013
