And now the wait begins, until march 2013 when they ship the thing.


You can add on around half a year to that date, if they are as far along as they claim. if they're as far along as it seems....

You'd think with their goalset (registering, licensing and producing for worldwide) and over 8.5 Million, they could make things happen fast, considering they have 900% more backers than they wanted to work with.


Money doesn't make hardware production and testing and manufacturing go faster. only sacrificing quality control and unit testing and production prototype testing does,. a long and tedious process that you do not want to sacrifice any part of unless you want to take every unit in return.

I have a feeling that someone don't like the Console and is trying to attack in every possible way...

No. whenever it does get released, I will probably buy one unless there's a better alternative. just for use as a emulator and maybe plex, unless I upgrade my old cable HTPC with a DVB-S card before that. then I'll just keep using that of course.

It's a good idea. it's not very well executed and they haven't shown ANY real progress except promises. and their status reports indicated they are MUCH further from production than they claim. but that could also be that they simply don't have a clue how long it takes to get to production and the work involved and noone told them.

But hey, if you have some Actual argument that prove otherwise that there's a snowballs chance in hell that they'll be in production and shipping by their promised date. then please post. you know instead of badly camouflaged ad hominems

Sorry, but this company is not a multinational companies like Apple,MS or Google!!!
Its just a start up who don't even have any money and is building it using the funding people provide!!
As, far as i can see they are doing a good job putting the puzzles together!!!

Its like blaming a physically challenged person for not running properly in a race!!!!

What does that have to do with anything ? They're still promising something they can't deliver in the time they say, and anyone who would research or ask the factories would know this. Well actually you shouldn't trust the factories they will over promise and under deliver. and if you don't pay attention will claim you don't need to do all the necessary unit testing and component testing, which would be a recipe for disaster.

and with the background the people in this project have, they know this.

And why would I be buying a product from a company you just compared to a physically challenged person... that was a terrible comparison. They're more like the junior league peewee team with little training.

How do you know that they cant deliver?? its too early to say... even if they slip date its acceptable and unless you are a backer you have no reason to be concerned....

I said like blaming a physically challenged... and if you look at all startup these days they are physical challenges in these competitive world... Its a metaphor and not to be taken literally.. damn!

If it takes that long, it will be ridiculously obsolete by time it launches.
Just look at the Raspberry Pi. Now that you buy them in quantity, they seem pretty dated.

BEcause I have a slight clue how long and what it takes to get a product from prototype to actual production, and they're not even on prototype yet.

Have you been following the Kickstart for OUYA? They do have working prototype. The only change to the design is the addition of the ethernet port.

Let's not forget that they seem to have lots of help from nVidia.

OUYA says:

Thank you for your support during our Kickstarter campaign. You will be one of the first people on your block with an OUYA - super cool! Your belief in our dream took us from prototype to reality, and you’ll get to revel in that success a month before OUYA roles out to the rest of the world. Thank You!

In September, we’ll send you a reward survey so you can reserve your OUYA username. We thought we’d give you a few weeks to think about it – we know creativity takes time.

When we launch, you’ll have a FOUNDER EMBLEM forever emblazoned next to your username.

Also, in the beginning of 2013, we’ll be sending you another reward survey so you can provide your shipping information – this is where you’ll input your official ship-to address and clarify any special shipping information.

BTW, international backers, if you forgot to add the $20 for international shipping, let us know by dropping us a brief email at support@ouya.tv.

All my best,

-Julie
