    Today there are 954 games and counting (seriously, that’s the counter right there). They’re ready to play and most are free to try. But why limit these great games to just one system, even if that system is ours! Freedom – it’s been one of our die hard beliefs from day one, so we’re super excited to announce OUYA Everywhere. We’re embarking on a new way to bring these killer games to everyone, wherever they play. Subscribe to our blog to get all the info.

    With an OUYA anyone can make a game because every OUYA console is a dev kit. No need to purchase a license or an expensive SDK. It’s built on Android and supports a ton of engines. Go ahead and create the next big title in your bedroom – just like the good old days! Check out the develop section to get started.

    All this 1080p goodness isn’t just for gaming. OUYA brings some of your favorite apps to the big screen so that you can stream shows, movies, and music directly into your living room.

    OUYA is the first totally open video game console, we welcome you to unscrew it and have a look around. Whether you use WiFi or Ethernet or if you like to download games or stream movies, you can do it all in 1080P HD.  Check out the $99 and $129 versions of the console and controller in our Store
