Engadget Review of Ouya

The Ouya gaming platform is an Android-based console meant to compete with the likes of Playstation and XBox. While it clearly doesn’t have the kind of firepower the latter two systems do, it is interesting for a number of reasons.

Because it is an Android-based platform, there is a built-in army of developers all over the world who can easily create games for it, or port mobile device apps into this new format with relative ease.

Also, since there is built-in media player functionality, it will be interesting to see if this sort of device becomes a competitor to the likes of Boxee and Roku as well. Not to mention the obvious potential parallels with Google TV.
