*I'm kinda suprised that it took this long!* I thought a project like this would've happened months ago.

Question: When will the OUYA mk2 actually come out. It's almost been a year since the console's orginal retail release, and at this point last year, we'd basically everything. The console, the controllers, the packaging, etc. Now we're a few weeks from June, and there really hasn't been anything. We know that there will be a 2nd, presumably Tegra 4-packing OUYA, but, to us, it only exists in theory.

What do you think? Are you worried, curious? Comment.

Ha ha. It's coming. :-)
This morning we got a package dropped off by FedEx and when we opened up the package we quickly discovered that it was a bright NVIDIA green colored crowbar! The only thing on the crowbar was a Half-Life 2 and NVIDIA SHIELD logo along with the words "What Would Gordon Do."

+Sam Rothermel Yeah I totally understand, but I'm not sure what else we're going to do about it, unless we see more devices like the xperia play, but in a better form factor.

The thing is, we're seeing a lot of genuinely new and great games built for touchscreen, but they still get dismissed as "casual" games.
I think touch can work in giving people the sort of games they'd like, like maybe Deus Ex or Assassins creed, but it would require developers to really rethink the control systems.

Valve's Portal is coming to the Nvidia Shield on May 12th. You might have already played Portal, but if you haven't - and own an Nvidia Shield, May 12th will be the perfect time to do so.

Mount&Blade Warband is the one that really got to me. I emailed the dev asking when it would be out on other devices and he said they had no plans. Sucks. Such a good game.

I wish that they would've just partnered with a company like OnLive for a service like this. 
Lego Batman 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction are available to play on Ouya systems via a cloud-based game streaming service released to beta this week. Developed by Playcast Media, the streaming...

I've tried onlive and the library is poor and couldn't get it working on ouya. Kainy worked ok for pc stuff but most often buying a second hand copy for my Xbox or ps3 is the best option for cost.

It's happening! I feel like this is the biggest OUYA news in a long time. It'll certainly be interesting to see how everything runs on other hardware.

It works great my games run great and all the ones I had on the mojo appear in the play so I could just leave it on ouya, I think I lost root after I had to update my firmware (took a long time had to search to find how to get it done! ) but so worth it.

So Nvidia has a clone of Bob Mills? Maybe they stole a piece of his hair or something, but they could be twins.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again: The Nvidia Shield is the perfect platform for OUYA Everywhere. It's a handheld platform with the same controls and exceeds the specifications of the current OUYA! I would love to have some OUYA-exclusives on the go! It system would have an even broader selection when you consider some of the exclusive that Nvidia's snagged for the Shield. Games like Portal!!!

I have a question: Can you use the Dualshock 4 with the OUYA?

I've been using PPSSPP on my OUYA a lot, but I really don't like the OUYA controller. It gets really uncomfortable after a little while, so I'm thinking about buying a new controller. I was curious about the DS4 because that controller is super comfortable and I'd much rather buy that than, say, a MOGA Pro or another DS3.
