Video games just feel bigger and better on a TV screen. Surround Sound. HD. A room full of friends. Console gaming isn’t going anywhere, but console games aren’t as much fun as they could be.
That’s why we made OUYA: a new kind of game console, to bring groundbreaking games to the television in an entirely new way.
“Who wouldn't want a beautiful piece of industrial design that sells for $99, plugs straight into your TV, and gives you access to a huge library of games?" – Jordan Mechner (creator of Prince of Persia, Karateka)
Games Only on OUYA
You download OUYA games directly to your console -- no discs to buy or scratch.
And the games on OUYA are made by some of the most inventive game developers in the business. Favorite franchises like Final Fantasy, brand new never-before-seen titles and hundreds of other games. Shooters, platformers, role-playing games, action games... You name it.
And, best of all, every game on OUYA is free to try. You might end up investing in that coin doubler, buying the healing elixir that extends your life, or unlocking the full version of the game, but everything -- absolutely everything -- is free to try. We believe you shouldn’t have to buy it unless you love it.
Small... but Powerful
OUYA is about the size of a Rubik’s cube, but it plays hard in full-screen HD. It uses an nVIDIA quad-core CPU and outputs via HDMI at up to a stunning 1080p resolution. It powers on instantly.
Need more storage? No problem. Just plug in an external hard drive into the USB 2.0 port. Like to hardwire your Internet? That’s cool. Jack into OUYA’s high-speed ethernet port. WiFi works too. If you want to develop games, just plug your laptop into our micro-USB port -- anyone can release an OUYA game. And the hardware opens so you can customize it if that’s your bag.
We listen to our supporters, and try to evolve OUYA so it always gets better for them. When you buy OUYA, you become part of our effort to change how console gaming works.
You will need a valid credit, debit or prepaid retail card to download OUYA content. Your card will not be charged unless you choose to make a purchase. Though many games on OUYA will not require a purchase to unlock additional content or features, others may offer for purchase in-game products or additional features (like full versions or additional levels).
OUYA... lovingly made by a team of gamers who believe that console games will never die.
What’s in the OUYA Box?
● OUYA game console
● OUYA wireless controller with removable faceplates
● HDMI cable
● Two AA batteries
● Power adapterWe created the OUYA because we love playing and making games for the TV and we wanted to bring the most creative, innovative and engaging games back to the living room. Now any developer-big or small, experienced or new can easily build games for the big screen all in 1080p. Today there are 729 games and counting (seriously, that's the counter right there). They're ready to play and free to try. But why limit these great games to just one system, even if that system is ours! Freedom - it's been one of our die hard beliefs from day one, so we're super excited to announce "OUYA Everywhere". We're embarking on a new way to bring these killer games to everyone, wherever they play.All this 1080p goodness isn't just for gaming. OUYA brings some of your favourite apps to the big screen so that you can stream shows, movies, and music directly into your living room. OUYA is the first totally open video game console, we welcome you to unscrew it and have a look around. Whether you use WiFi or Ethernet or if you like to download games or stream movies, you can do it all in 1080P HD.
It's not a console for me... I thought I could just sideload any android apps.Published 4 days ago by John L
It was an amazing concept but it just didn't work. The games were good but I found most of them were on the same level as casual phone games. Not really worth your full attention. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Nick Di Mario
This unit is great for running XBMC. I use this all the time. It has a nice and light footprint, low energy consumption and quiet. I don't use it for games at all...just XBMC.Published 1 month ago by PC
The best experience, I've had with Amazon. The only reason this product doesn't get a 5 star, is the poor wi-fi reception.Published 1 month ago by Steve Pfaff

Great little gaming platform for playing "mobile" games. The Kodi app turns it into a really small factor Media Center that performs awesomly.Published 3 months ago by Nicolas Boivin
