Ouya is a revolutionary new console which is centered around free to play games. It will be powered by android. These are it’s specs as posted on its Kickstarter Page:

 

“Specifications:

  • Tegra3 quad-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB of internal flash storage
  • HDMI connection to the TV, with support for up to 1080p HD
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth LE 4.0
  • USB 2.0 (one)
  • Wireless controller with standard controls (two analog sticks, d-pad, eight action buttons, a system button), a touchpad
  • Android 4.0 “

It is a bit unnerving seeing as these specifications look more fit for a smartphone or tablet than a gaming console, but public support for this system has been overwhelming. They have raised $4.5million out of their $1million goal, and there is still 26 more days to go. This could be a new and interesting console, we will just have to wait and see how it preforms when it’s released.
