Last week, we started shipping units to our early backers, but there is still much to do (we’re listening, promise) and we are on it.
I want to make sure you know what we are building, when, and to keep you updated on how we are constantly evolving and incorporating both your feedback and our learnings.
So here goes:
We received early feedback from developers when we sent out the developer consoles. Now we want feedback from you. The software, store, games will continue to evolve and grow, and as early backers who have exclusive access during this period before launch, we want you to be a part of that process.
We will continue to obsess over quality and performance. For example, we are considering adding additional magnets to the controllers so that the faceplates are more secure–no more falling off during shipments!
Got more suggestions? Because you will have exclusive access to the system while it’s in development we want to hear from you. We want you to love it!
Our software is constantly evolving. Right now, the team is focused on optimizing the performance of our software (this means responsiveness). In addition, we have a host of features we’re working on for the June launch. Here’s a glimpse at some of them:
External storage for games
Simpler game install process
More metrics for developers
Controller support for video players
More payment options
Our UI is simple. It will stay simple. We want it to be easy (and OBVIOUS!) for you to know what to do on OUYA. However, as more games come in, we will continue to work on discovery and curation of current games. More on this as it unfolds from Kellee :).
For some, these blogs aren’t enough. So write down all your questions and hit me up at my Reddit AMA the first week of May.
Games and Apps
Over 100 games and counting and they run the gamut — exclusives to OUYA, new developers, experienced developers, ports, you name it. We LOVE it. That’s the whole promise of OUYA: A world of great games among which you are sure to find new favorites!
We’ll be sharing some some of the most anticipated games hitting DISCOVER soon.
Keep cool and OUYA on!
The controller’s the thing. We’ve been working from the beginning to make the controller experience as honed, fast and precise as possible. (more…)
We just licked the stamps and waved a fond farewell to 1,200 OUYA Developer Consoles. These are the early versions of OUYA that developers will use to start making games. They’re on their way to developers around the globe – by land, air and sea. OK, only by air — we want you to get them quick. Devs, expect them on your doorstep within the next few days. (more…)
