The Ouya is fast approaching for those who have either supported the project through Kickstarter, or pre-ordered it from the guys behind Ouya themselves! In any case, it was announced that the Ouya console is being planned for yearly hardware updates, which Ouya’s CEO Julie Uhrman stating that a problem with major home consoles was an uncertain update schedule (to note, the last generation of consoles, Nintendo Wii, XBOX 360, and PS3, has been the longest generation to date).
So, what will this mean for you? For starters, there’ll be a new Ouya console each year with more advanced specifications. As of now, the Ouya will have a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, so we may be seeing a Tegra 4 processor in the 2014 model. Also, since the consoles will be updated regularly each year (like how Apple used to do for their products), the model for buying and keeping games will be similar to the popular Steam service, that is, the games aren’t tied to the console, but the user. If this all sounds good to you, be sure to pick up the Ouya this June for $99 USD!
