This Ouya ad is so bad that I can't believe it's real


6:00 AM on 08.21.2013



[Update: the official video has been taken down, presumably to avoid embarrassment, so a mirror is now posted in its stead. The Ouya construct is learning -- it will soon be capable of rational thought and feelings. Be afraid.]

As part of their "free the games" campaign, it seems as if Ouya is out to deliver a message -- $60 games are not okay. But the delivery of said message in a recent commercial (featured above) is so bizarre that it must be seen to be believed.

The only logical explanation I can come up with as to how this was allowed past the planning stages is that the Ouya has become sentient. Not content with the fact that 73% of its owners have not purchased one game, it's out for blood. As an early Ouya backer when it sounded like a good idea, I am safe.

But for those less fortunate, I salute you.
