"We'll Take Advantage Of Faster, Better Processors"
Interesting news from the Ouya team, who confirms that they plan to release a new console on an annual basis.
"Our strategy is very much similar to the mobile strategy," Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman announced to Engadget. "There will be a new Ouya every year. There will be an Ouya 2 and an Ouya 3.
"We'll take advantage of faster, better processors, take advantage of prices falling. So if we can get more than 8GB of Flash in our box, we will."
Before you reach for the comments, fellow backers, it's worth noting that early adopters won't be left out in the cold. Uhrman was quick to point out that "all games will be backwards compatible," and purchases will be tied to user accounts, leaving us free to upgrade down the line. Plus, remember, the Ouya is designed to be relatively easy to unscrew and tinker with yourself if you fancy taking matters into your own hands.
Over 1200 dev kits are currently in the hands of developers, many of whom have already pledged support to the Ouya including Double Fine, XMBC and others. The retail version should be shipped to backers in March, all being well.
