You all have heard of Ouya right?
If you haven't, Ouya is a completely open source gaming console.It runs android 4.1(a little bit more powerful than xbox 360) and you can buy it pre rooted. There is no penalty for hacking it if its not rooted, and most of the games are free. Ouya is non-profit and they already raised six million dollars with a million followers and contributors (number still growing).
Today console gaming is completely company controlled like the music industry before the internet. Also, console games are made by the exact same rotation of people leading to the fact that most games released today are similar.
With Ouya, anyone with a laptop and will power can release a new console game and not have to pay licencing fees. People don't necessarily even have to make games for money; they could simply make a game to entertain themselves and accidently rise to fame (like many writers).
Where do you see Ouya going? What will happen to the living room gaming industry when the possibility exist that anyone could make a better game than them? If it is successful, what will this do for the future of console gaming?
