Looks pretty useless as far as gaming goes, unless you don't have much of an interest. But i do like how its available immediately.

My toaster is a OUYA competitor. That thing is soooo much fail.


This seems worse than OUYA though because with OUYA the biggest shit decision was creating their own marketplace and having to re-buy all of the games you already had.


This one is from the ground up with no marketplace really. This thing is dead on arrival unless they do something very different than the other media boxes people already have and I don't see this happening. Amazon is faaaar too late to the game.

This isn't a gaming console. This is something to keep the kid busy in the living room for a half hour while you make sweet love to their mom.

The only kids who will own one of these will be ones that ask for a PS4 or XB1, but their grandma decides this is just as good. Then the kids mom will tell him to say thank you as the tears well up in his eyes.
