I wasn't interested in OUYA in the beginning, but I've warmed up to the tiny box. A console just for free or free-to-play digital distribution games? After the parade of shame and disappointment that is the home console space proper, I'm ready for a machine that encourages simple pleasures over whatever nonsense big companies want to shove down our throats this week.
OUYA started arriving at Kickstarter backers' homes a few days ago, but the official release is set for June 4 -- that's my birthday, if you were wondering what to get me. A hefty 104 titles will launch with the box, including Canabalt, Giana Sisters, and Final Fantasy III. In addition to games, there will be other software such as a TwitchTV app and various console emulators.
I don't recognize most of the names on the list -- I'm sure a lot of them are garbage. That's the nature of the beast, I suppose. We'll see how well the machine is received once it drops. In the meantime, check the full launch lineup below.
