Today the OUYA team has revealed new revealing photos of the controller and console. Not that we should not expect some slight tweaks to the designs, but according to OUYA they “couldn’t hold out any longer.” The controller is also expected to improve upon the colored circle buttons — which are currently lacking any textural elements. The other big news today from OUYA today is that OnLive will be hosting games from over 80 publishers (as of today). The majority of the games’s instant demos will be free-to-play for up to 30 minutes, and the games accessible remotely via PCs, tablets and phones. Cool stuff still brewing at OUYA. And, they’ve already got $5.6 million already pledged with 12 days to go.
More about the OnLive news from General Manager Bruce Grove:
What does that mean for OUYA backers?
- OnLive will deliver a full console-class experience, bringing hundreds of top-tier games from more than 80 publishers to the OUYA console for play on demand.
- OUYA owners will be able to jump in and play any of these games both at home on their OUYA console, and on the go on PCs, Macs, tablets and phones, never leaving a game behind.
- Instant demos will be available for nearly every game in our ever-growing library—from eagerly anticipated indie titles like Ravaged, to hot blockbusters like the upcoming Darksiders® II. Players can experience up to 30 minutes of each game for free before deciding what to buy. If they like it, they can continue playing where the demo left off.
