Yes Ouya looks to be a nice little game system for recreational gamers. This is by far not for hardcore gamers, but it does have a place in the gaming market. I backed this product when it was doing it's Kickstarter promotion for a few reasons and I was glad to see that they went with Ouya.tv as a domain name! I haven't kept up to date on the project, but I did glance over an email about them the other day and they have actually paired up with several quality companies. I look forward to receiving mine.
I think it will have wonderful platform games. I am hoping something like Rayman would come up for this.
Also I do not find many games catering to young children. Most of the games have too much gore or violence. Even the mild kinds are off limits for children. I think this will make a good case for casual gaming for kids on the cheap.
Maybe some of us will also buy this to take a break from hardcore gaming.
