10. Ouya is not a scam, but it's not much either. Sep 6, 2012, 00:22 hb3d

Yeah, the Ouya screamed scam with every detail that came out.
While I would never give money to pre-purchase an Ouya and most likely would never buy one, the skepticism surrounding it seems based upon a misinterpretation of what it actually will be. If a Chinese company can sell this for $70 today, I don't doubt that next year basically the same thing could be sold for $100 with a cheap gamepad included with it. That is what the Ouya is going to be: a small, cheap computer running Android like that with a cheap gamepad that has a couple of tilt switches in it. Anyone looking for an XBOX or even a Wii is barking up the wrong tree.
