With freely developed, mobile games ever on the rise on the Android operating system, could this new $99 console cause a dent?
A new concept, pitched at $99, involves a box that can hook up to your TV to play - with all games supposedly free. It's also proposed that the console, dubbed Ouya, be developer friendly - "built to be hacked", coupling together a developer kit and a living room set.
The hardware, whilst not in production yet, is significant as it's being designed by the chap behind One Laptop Per Child, Yves Behar. It also has backing from Julie Uhrman of IGN, Ed Fries who helped launch Microsoft's original Xbox, Muffi Ghadiali who worked with Amazon's Kindle, amongst others.
What do you think of the possibility for more Android-based devices taking on the traditional home console? Would be interested in such a device at under $100?
