you can't limit yourself to just pc's... it's a known fact that more people have been buying phones and tablets than pcs. there's really no need for a pc at this point in time.
there's a market out there... the fact that they asked for $950k but got $8.5 million should tell you something. the people want something new, developers want something new. it might not live up to your standards, but this thing is going to make money lol
Oh yeah and I'm gonna pull a goodno. Citation on this known fact please.
Yeah, you wanna know what it tells me? People are morons. Do you want to know what were some of the most requested games on the device? Assassins creed 3. Crysis 2 and 3. Skyrim. People want something new? No, they wanted a 100 dollar machine that they thought could run intense games on a higher caliber than consoles, equal or greater to PCs. The proof is on their kickstarter. They were even egging these people on making polls: "So which games do you want to see in this console". You've been lied to about this device.
And yeah, you can limit yourself to just PCs. Why? Because there are most likely more PCs out there than consoles combined. But the only fact of the matter is, you have a PC which is 100X more capable and better than the OUYA in every which way, is open source, you can develop for it on multiple languages, and possibly make it cheaper than anything else. Meanwhile the OUYA is..android based..and..well that's it. Yeah, that's great, isn't it?
In the meantime, people are attempting to hype up something with half the capabilities and power. I'd have no problem if people were excited about the OUYA because it's a cheap android tv box, but you and others are attempting to hype it up to something it's not and never will be, and then comparing it to something that exceeds it in every field, but denying that fact because "lol markets lol". Anyway, nothing about the OUYA is a developers dream especially with, let me reiterate, the fact that the thing is being advertised as hackable. Immediately any developer would look at this and say "oh wow, I'm not gonna develop for this when the console maker doesn't even put in a safety net so my game doesn't get stolen instantly". At least with consoles and handhelds there is a safety net that needs to be cracked.
