Ouya Skepticism From Ben Kuchera

Ben Kuchera, now reporting for The Penny Arcade Report, throwing some cold water on Ouya, a Kickstarter project to build a cheap “open” game console based on Android:

I asked specifically about the ambition of this product, and my misgivings about the goal of a March launch. “We continue to march toward that date,” I was told via email. No further details were given. […]

It’s likewise important to note that the company refuses to confirm the existence of a single game that will run on the OUYA hardware. I asked if they could confirm a single game for the platform. “Not at this time,” I was told. “We are obviously talking to developers behind the scenes but feel that its too early to announce.”
