This interview in particular.http://www.pocketgamer.co.uk/r/Android/Ouya/feature.asp?c=43030But also the way they mislead, saying Minecraft is going to be on it when Mojang is saying they're going to wait. Then they put up that survey about what games people want with ridiculous suggestions like Skyrim and Mass Effect. That's just irresponsible of them.

The hardware is appealing, but I can't bring myself to pledge for one. It feels like too big of a gamble, and those interviews and false statements only cement my position.

I feel like there is going to be a really weird story in a year about how this was a scam or something. The way they are misleading people into pledging money is really weird, and if all these big name people are signing on then why couldn't they get the extra $950,000 from other investors or the millionaires signing on to work with this system?

Unless you plan on dodging taxes or scamming your pledgers, Kickstarter really isn't a good way of earning money. It's strictly for earning capital. In a sense, it's a method for pre-sale. Every penny earned on Kickstarter counts toward income tax so when it comes down to it you really do only make enough to make good on the pledge rewards and very little more.

I don't think it's a scam. I just think they'll find it is harder than they expect. People will be angry when it's late. I just don't want to be stuck waiting for news on the thing.

Well they made more (on Kickstarter) than they originally asked for, so hopefully they put it to good use and make good with their pledges. Didn't they say they wanted to release it by next year (or late this year?). I do believe like Burr that they will probably find it harder than they expect to meet expectations. Telltale Games is finding that out right now and they are veterans at what they do.

They're aiming for March 2013. All they have is a prototype they're not showing. The controller isn't finalized. And all they have is a mockup of the store and software it'll run.

OnLive Available on OuyaSo this should bring on the bigger name Games to Ouya and not just App games. Onlive has improved also since before I last tried it out (last week). Runs more smoothly on my broadband connection and not gaming friendly PC.
