Yeah, Ouya won't do much to disrupt anything. It is a good idea but it needed more beefy hardware behind the idea to really make a difference.

Yeah, but at that point the question becomes "why?"
Most of the target audience already has cellphones or tablets that are as powerful. Why buy another device when you can just hook those up to the TV via their mini-hdmi and connect a controller via bluetooth?

Ouya completely misses the point - consoles will absolutely be replaced after (or during) this next cycle, but it won't be another dedicated box that does it. That's just another console, no different than Microsoft replacing Sega (which it didn't do directly, but it filled the hole on the shelf.)
