If you have a whole pile of Bitcoins lying around, you'll be able to spend some of them to buy hardware and content from OUYA.

Bitcoin has been slowly gaining something which resembles acceptance as a form of currency and more companies seem to be using them in transactions. But it seems to me that there's a whole lot of risk involved in assigning "cash" value to these little 1's and 0's that could conceivably just disappear one day.
Of course, we assign similar value to easily burned pieces of paper all the time, so what the hell do I know?
