OUYA

Earlier at this year’s Dice Summit, the CEO of OUYA Julie Uhrmun announced that they would be releasing a new console every year. Because if it works for smart phones and tablets, it’s got to work for consoles too, right?

“As it relates to iterating the console and refreshes, our strategy is very much similar to the mobile strategy. There will be a new Ouya every year”, Julie tells Joystiq. “There will be an Ouya 2 and an Ouya 3. We’ll take advantage of faster, better processors, take advantage of prices falling. So if we can get more than 8GB of Flash in our box, we will. And in so doing, make sure that all games are backwards compatible.”

“We’re launching on the Tegra 3. It’s a quad-core A9 chip. Because it’s not a mobile device, we don’t have to balance power for battery life. So when all four quads are running, it’s 1.6GHz. It’s gonna be the best Tegra 3 device on the market.”

Games will be tied to your account, so your games can easily be transferred if you decide to purchase another OUYA, but I doubt that makes it better. People were already skeptical of the system before this announcement. I’m sure some people who actually donated enough money to get their own OUYA will be regretting their donation knowing that a better OUYA will be out next year.
