The new OUYA Console is about the size of a Rubik’s cube, but it plays hard in full-screen HD. It uses an nVIDIA quad-core CPU and outputs via HDMI at up to a stunning 1080p resolution. It powers on instantly.
Need more storage? No problem. Just plug in an external hard drive into the USB 2.0 port. Like to hardwire your Internet? That’s cool. Jack into OUYA’s high-speed ethernet port. WiFi works too. If you want to develop games, just plug your laptop into our micro-USB port — anyone can release an OUYA game. And the hardware opens so you can customize it if that’s your bag.
OUYA listens to it’s supporters, and tries to evolve OUYA so it’s constantly getting better. When you buy OUYA, you become part of an effort to change how console gaming works.

Here are 7 Reasons you should buy an OUYA:
1. Every game is free to try.
Yes, you heard right.OUYA doesn’t think you should buy games or in-game items unless you absolutely love them. If you fall head-over-heels for one of them, all you’ll need is a valid credit card, debit card or redeemable code. You’ll never be charged unless you choose to make a purchase.
2. Your OUYA console is your dev kit—no license, fees or expensive SDK required.
OUYA has removed the impediments that keep brilliant people from bringing console games to market. Every OUYA comes with all the tools you need to make a great game without the crippling overhead.
Create a boundless 3D universe with the UNITY engine or scale things back to the turn-based RPG—you’re in control.
3. A lot of games. Like, a lot.
Boasting both award-winning developers and up-and-comers, you’ll always be on the cutting edge of game releases, as OUYA delivers every genre you love, from shooters and action adventures to RPGs and puzzles. And since OUYA downloads all its games directly, that means no compact discs cluttering the coffee table. Hope you have some sick days stored up.
4. Every hero needs a sidekick.
Conquer worlds and high scores with OUYA’s thoughtfully crafted controller, enhancing every game thanks to its precise, responsive feedback, a touchpad for new dimensions of gameplay and 15 buttons to mash as you please. When you need a multiplayer fix, head online or connect up to four of these bad boys and let the games begin.
5. Much more than just gaming.
All that 1080p goodness isn’t just for gaming. OUYA brings all your favorite apps to the big screen, streaming shows, movies, and music directly into the living room. We’ve already partnered with Twitch.tv, Crunchyroll, iheartradio, TuneIn, XBMC, Plex and Flixster and are adding more to our list daily.
6. It’s what’s inside that matters.
We’ve outfitted OUYA with NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via USB). So don’t hold back. Whether you use WiFi or Ethernet, download games or stream your favorite videos or music apps in beautiful 1080p HD. And since OUYA is the first totally open video game console, we welcome you to unscrew it and have a look around.
