Despite its low price and free-to-try system, the Ouya fails to reach its potential as a disruptive alternative platform.
Gaming hardware maker Razer will integrate Ouya's app store and publishing business into its operations as it seeks to expand into content. The future of Ouya's hardware is unclear but looks shaky.
The company, whose app store was pitched as the go-to place for small and independent developers, is negotiating for employees to remain with the company after the sale.
Hundreds of Ouya games could soon be available on Xiaomi's streaming boxes and smart TVs.
The deal marks the latest agreement in its "Ouya Everywhere" effort, helping the company expand beyond the TV.
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.
