Hacking the Ouya is actually part of the whole idea, it’s actually build around the idea to be a developer kit, which you can use to root and build peripherals.
Android is the embedded OS, so we expect that developers will not only build games for the console, but can also easily leverage games from the Android platform. Interestingly, after you get the console all games are expected to be free. You just hook it up to your TV and play.
This is definitely one of the most interesting TV boxes we’ve seen in a while, so we’ll be keeping a close eye on this. In the meantime let us know, how do you like the idea?
