Despite its low price and free-to-try system, the Ouya fails to reach its potential as a disruptive alternative platform.
The Kickstarter-born micro console company is vying to get more gamers on its platform with a 12-month pass to its entire library.
Ouya's shift from game-console hardware freed it up to target a wider range of TV-connected devices. But it may have jumped from the frying pan into the Fire TV.
A new Ouya console has been launched, boasting a matte black finish, twice the flash memory and a few other small tweaks.
If you've been wanting to try this "disruptive" game system, it's never been cheaper.
Now up for preorder, the new limited edition costs $129 and is painted white.
After speculation that some people were pulling the wool over Ouya's eyes to get financial backing for their gaming projects, the console maker switches up its funding rules.
The company offers backers who didn't receive a console until after it was on store shelves a $13.37 credit for use in the Ouya Discovery Store.
The game console maker wants to give away $1 million to help developers create games for its Android-based platform.
The Ouya Game Console does its best to deliver as an alternative console, but various issues keep it grounded.
