Grab the OUYA for $10 off at Amazon [DEAL]

ouya-featured-LARGE

Need a little something to nudge you toward buying an OUYA this holiday season? Amazon’s got you covered with $10 off the gaming box, giving you an affordable Android-based gaming experience for just $90 (8GB, but expandable using USB storage).

OUYA features NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor and 1GB of RAM, and comes with a unique wireless controller that features a touchpad on the front. It’s no secret that OUYA is getting a bit dated. While the Tegra 3 chipset was mighty good for its time, it has since been outclassed by the Tegra 4 silicon NVIDIA’s currently focusing on (and we won’t even mention the extremely powerful Qualcomm chipsets on the way).

OUYA’s biggest challenge since knocking it out of the park on Kickstarter has been garnering enough interest from developers to keep the quality games rolling in. The team has worked quite hard to get a couple of high quality exclusive titles worked up for it, but a vast majority of the console’s content can already be found in places like the Google Play Store for tons more devices.

It’s especially difficult once you consider the fact that the PS4 and Xbox One have come out and sold millions within their first few weeks of availability. It would appear that OUYA is the forgotten step child in this big gaming family.

All that aside, if all you’re looking for is an open, developer-friendly gaming box for your sizable television set then this could be worth the trouble. Head to Amazon if you want to take advantage.

    More importantly – a straightforward, no faff,1080p XBMC playout box…

    * If you don’t mind 2 channel sound until they sort out HDMI passthrough of DTS5.1. *so* close…

    So wait, the states gets a price reduction from $99 to $89. While the UK’s price of £99 ($162) remains the same? Rip off UK at it again. I’ll pass thanks, until pricing is more in line with the states.

      Canadians often get left out of these sales too. It would be pretty great if they dropped the price by 20% in most parts of the world as part of a sale.

    Would need to be $90 off to get me to buy it.

  • Dan Fryling

    I’d buy it for 10 bucks also.

    When I read the title, I didn’t see the word “off”. =.[

    There is actually a better deal right now. You can get $40.00 off with the code “Calamity” in the official Ouya Store. Source: http://ouyaforum.com/showthread.php?8558-Coupon-Code-for-40-off-an-Ouya-Console

      If you believe that I have a barely flooded second-hand nuclear power plant up for sale you’ll simply love! Lololol.

    I read that as “Grab the OUYA for $10 at Amazon”.

    I’m very disappointed :(

    • Donovan Shore

      I did the exact same thing.

  • mrjoeyloke

    No thanks!

  • snapper.fishes

    A $90 paperweight.

    For $10 I don’t know if I can recommend this. There is barely an xda community left anymore. It does support XBMC decently and all the usual emulators though.

    Bought one on launch mainly for the hardware itself but its turning into a great little game box vs say 2 or 3 games I could have bought for the PS3 instead. Obviously it is not in the same league as a PS3 etc but neither is a phone or tablet so anyone making that comparison is a fool. What it is, is a cheap piece of hardware that has lots of potential depending on what you want to get out of your experience with it. Its also about creativity and discovering new things that might actually be a lot of fun. Seriously $90.00 is not a lot of money for a device like this when you consider the cost of dinner and a movie now days.

    Some of you might actually enjoy the OUYA if you actually spent time with one :)
