Ouya

There's a lot to like about this sleek, Android-based gaming console. For one thing, it's much cheaper than a PlayStation 3 or XBox 360--it will run $109 once it starts shipping next April. Ouya seeks to lure developer talent away from mobile platforms since programmers already know how Android works and won’t have to buy a license or expensive software development kit. To get their games added to the Ouya marketplace they’ll only need to make sure some aspect of gameplay is free.
