Ouya’s CEO Julie Uhrman has today announced a new initiative called Ouya Everywhere, which it hopes will allow users to Ouya games without the need to purchase an Ouya games console.
Starting out life as a simply Kickstarter project, Ouya has become huge since it raised over $8.5 million dollars in crowd funding, managing to take their Android games console into production and expand upon the ideas which they first had, and this is one of them.
Uhrman explained with the following statement:
“Ouya Everywhere is about bringing our software to other people’s devices by embedding it in those devices. We’ve always wanted to be an open platform. It started with a hardware product for us. We will always have an Ouya reference design… but in addition to just being a reference device we believe our ecosystem can live on other devices.”
“We’re creating abilities for developers to launch betas and to get real-time feedback,”-“the place where developers go to have that direct communication with gamers. That’s thrilling for us to see and we’re the only place you can do that.”
So far there’s no details on Ouya Everywhere’s launch, and it seems as a simple idea at the moment, but we will let you know more when it is revealed. In the meantime you can find out more about the new service at the link below.
