Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

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.

Additional Requirements

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 adapter

We 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.

I received my OUYA last week and am very pleased at what it can do. I bought it mostly for the emulators on the console. Neo.emu, md.emu, snes9x, pce.emu, nes.emu are all excellent apps that are worth the price alone for the console. The N64 emulator needs lots of work but is amazing to see classic games in full HD in higher resolutions. Hopefully Mame comes to the console in the app download centre as it would be a nice little arcade machine for your HD TV.
If emulation is not your thing there is many new games that are lots of fun. Towerfall, Beast Boxing Turbo, ChronoBlade, Final Fantasy 3 are a few that are definitely lots of fun. I am very excited to see new games released and see potential in the OUYA.

Cons: Wi-Fi disconnects and has major problems finding your router. This is the major problem I have with the console. Hopefully the internet connection problems can be fixed in a firmware update as this makes it very frustrating for the user. Since this is a download only console this MUST be fixed unless they make an online shop on the PC where you can transfer purchases from a USB onto the OUYA.
- Controller looks better than what it really is. The DPAD is horrible and buttons are not very responsive. If you are going to play games make sure you use your PS3 controller or plug in a USB controller. Lets hope they rerelease an improved controller in the future that is comparable to the Xbox 360 or PS3 quality.
- The user interface is glitchy. Some apps are difficult to exit, payments cannot be made when purchasing games due to connection wifi problems, sound popping noises in the UI. Essentially work needs to be done on the UI.

Overall I do believe the console has lots of potential and overall has excellent video, colour and audio. The ability to use other USB devices and controllers is a HUGE Plus and can't wait to see what else comes out for this console.

I can't count how many devices I've set up to run XBMC but this is the slickest in terms of ease of setup, software/system integration, size, and performance relative to cost. The OUYA has plenty of power with it's quad core cpu and Tegra3 gpu to provide a solid platform to run XBMC on. The OUYA XBMC version is tailored to work with the OUYA wireless controller without the requirement for any additional equipment. It's a complete package to get you up and running right out of the box at a cost that's hard to beat. As of writing this I find there is little if anything to compete with the OUYA in the XBMC set top box market when you look at all factors. If you value your time this is a no brainer to set up XBMC on and get running and runs as well if not better than any other set top box I've worked with in this price range or even higher. There's a lot more to OUYA than XBMC but on the merits of XBMC alone this box is A1 in my books. Well thought out, stylish and simple. A very slick little product that I'm delighted I purchased. I'll likely buy more as gifts so others can appreciate it as much as I do I think so highly of it.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a really awesome console! Forget any other cheap android device or even Apple TV, this device runs XBMC like a charm. This console is easily hackable in fact it was made to be cracked, so you can install any of your Google play games on it. It runs NES, SNES, and PSONE games really well. I haven't tried N64 games yet but there is an app to run them.

-It runs everything in 1080p
-Comes with an HDMI Cable
-You can plug in an external hard drive ( I have a 500 gig one currently hooked up)
-The system is "open" so you can side load applications such as your Google Play games
-I would say that it has the performance and graphical potential of an XBOX 360, in the size Rubik's Cube (extremely portable).
-You can play online games or play with 3 other people in the same room
-There is an application where you can stream games from your computer (Kainy)
-Your XBOX and PS controllers work with the system
-You can hook up a blue tooth keyboard and mouse
-The console is still supported, new games and applications are constantly being developed.
-You can develop your own applications/games for it and sell them or give them out for free.
-Every application or game has to have a demo so you can actually try out the game or application before you purchase it.

This thing is pure awesomeness :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Best device I've ever set up for xbmc June 28 2014

Best device I've ever set up for xbmc. Just make sure you install the version from the xbmc website and not the ouya store.

Emulators for all old systems work awesome as well.

All in all a great device for a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, very versatile. July 16 2014
Verified Purchase
OUYA is still loads of fun, and a great example of an open gaming platform.

I'm impressed how well curated, maintained, and updated the OUYA store is. There are lots and lots of free games out there to play. Emulation on the OUYA is also a big draw, and it can handle N64 and PSX emulation without breaking a sweat.

For those concerned with controller lag, consider that you can use PS4, XBOX360, generic PC and generic Bluetooth Gamepads with this. You can even use a USB hub + several wired controllers. The USB port grants an incredible amount of versatility.

5.0 out of 5 stars great value and tons of entertainment June 23 2014

This little box is awesome, sideloaded xbmc gotham and google play store so now i can play games i already bought on my tv, sonic 2 in16:9 hd ratio is great! I actually cancelled my cable tv because xbmc has free nhl games and all movie and tv shows FOR FREE. Games on ouya are pretty good too, and the emulators work fine. So basically this box has every movie and tv show from the 1970-2014, all the videogames from atari 2600 to dreamcast, plus brand new games from android platform AND ouya. A lot of the ouya games are made for local 4 player, i strongly suggest bombsquad and towerfall, these games were a complete blast when friends came over. One of the best purchase i have ever made.

Probably the worst console. If your a parent deciding which console to buy for your kids, I would suggest you choose a Playstation 4, Playstation 3, or XBOX ONE and Xbox 360

5.0 out of 5 stars Try Spmc before Xbmc
I bought this only to use Xbmc. After downloading an app called spmc (it's Xbmc designed for the ouya) no shudders or anything playing downloaded 1080p content as I write this. Read more
