Razer has today confirmed that they have acquired the software assets of the Android gaming console manufacturer, Ouya.
This was officially announced by Razer earlier this week, confirming that Razer had acquired Ouya’s content catalog and online retail platform. As part of the deal the technical team and developer relations personal that are currently working at Ouya will join the software team at Razer.
This all comes as part of an effort by Razer to make its Forge TV product better, but for those who own the Ouya console, Razer has said that they will be providing a path for migration over to their Forge TV micro-console.
“Razer has a long-term vision for Android TV and Android-based TV consoles, such as the Xiaomi Mi Box and Alibaba Tmall Box, to which OUYA already publishes,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “OUYA’s work with game developers, both triple A and indies, went a long way in bringing Android games to the living room and Razer intends to further that work. This acquisition is envisaged to usher more developers and content to the Android TV platform.”
The deal between Razer and Ouya closed on June 12th, 2015. As of yet there has been no financial details released.
