Ouya controller

So, there’s a new console about to break ground called the Ouya, and it looks to fill the indie nitch like no other console before it.

Many consoles have tried to tap into this market before.  Xbox Live and the Playstation Network host independently developed games; even the original Playstation had some indie hits.  But the cost of entry can still be pretty high.

Enter: Ouya.  An Android-based consoles with pumped-up tablet specs that hopes to drive gameplay to a whole new level.  Call me old-fashioned (or just old), but I hope it brings back the good old days of the 8- and 16-bit era of video games.  Some of my favorite games of all time are Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG, and you just can’t find anything like them anymore.

Here’s to hoping that the Ouya brings something new to the table.  I’m looking at this from an optimistic viewpoint.
