Edit: ooooh, derp, CHASHING->Cashing

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ouya/ouya-a-new-kind-of-video-game-console

The project is only at day 3 of the "kickstart" and it's already at 4.2MILLION dollars. Pretty incredible I'd say.

Both the hardware and the software of the console is gonna be open source, so you bet your *** you'll see plenty of interesting modifications to it.

It's Android 4.0 based and will have HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, USB2.0, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, 8GB storage and Nvidia Tegra 3 with 1GB RAM.
I think the performance is at almost the level of XBOX360 (from my playing around in games with a Tegra 3 tablet).
It'll cost 99 bucks.

Very interesting project.

I can live with that ^^
Besides, anything worse than the
bleeding-edge we can just say is
"retro".

It's 5 days left and they're almost at 6.6 million dollars.

Their first first-party game has now been announced: https://twitter.com/fourzerotwo/status/226032074375692288

And here's a pic from a launch game with some combat I doubt you'll call uninteresting:

Even if they hit 10 million, that isn't enough to support the type of team/staff needed to actually launch a successful system.

Maybe, but if all else fails you can still use it as a media center :)
Not saying that I'm getting one, I'll probably just get a Raspberry Pi.
