Ouya – Your Gaming Destination

If you are looking for a quick yet reasonable gaming console then Ouya is definitely going to attract you. iYogi reviews Ouya, a little gaming console and brings in light the most amazing features of this console. Here’s a look.

Priced at $100, Ouya console comes with a wireless controller packed in an attractive little box, about the size of a Rubik’s Cube. The console is developed with the help of Tegra 3 processor running at 1.7GHz and 1GB of RAM, with 8GB of flash storage. iYogi reviews team noticed that it is like a mid-tier tablet designed to work with your TV instead of a touchscreen.

The hardware of Ouya isn’t very impressive but with such a reasonable price that isn’t bad either. iYogi reviews team takes a close look at the product and finds that the shape of Ouya gaming console is similar to the popular design of the Xbox 360 controller. Further, Ouya is packed with two sticks, a D-pad, four face buttons (labeled O-U-Y-A), shoulder buttons, and triggers and its layout is fine, but the quality is a little subpar.

iYogi reviews team also finds that the initial set up of Ouya is simple and it is just like contemporary consoles with fairly simple and unattractive menu staring at four words: Play, Discover, Make, and Manage. Coming to the performance of Ouya, well the Ouya platform is based on Android 4.2 and the same is customized with Ouya menus, stores, fonts, and prompts, all fit to use on a big TV. Ouya runs its own store and the players cannot access the Google Play store.

iYogi reviews team discovered that Ouya’s biggest problem is that it cannot represents the Wild West of game development, with no clear “Killer app.” However, the best part of Ouya is that it delivers good hardware on the cheap as well as free development kits based on an operating system Android. As per iYogi reviews team verdict, the Ouya gaming console could have been a great gaming console, only if it has major streaming service such as Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, or sportify. However, with that price range it isn’t a bad deal either.
