I personally don't see the point in this kind of device (and I'm not talking about your typical console like PS3/360/etc). Most of these games are already available on phones/tablets - just don't see the necessity to play "mobile" games on my TV. I'd rather have a full fledged console experience with better graphics and higher quality games than a **** poor mobile gaming experience.
The machine hasn't had it's official launch. All the units going out at the moment are those for the backers, they aren't even being sent out as review machines. So pulling it apart when there are still months till launch where they can fix issues seems a little premature really.

.......Ouya doesn’t actually release until June 4. Reviewing the kickstarter unit kinda misses the point— these guys got in two months early because they backed it. The hardware is final, but Ouya promises a lot more software in June.
IMO, it is completely unfair to review a pre-release product when its viability completely hinges on the software.

There is nothing it can do that many other of my devices can't and don't do better.

By now, you've probably come across a review or two for the Android-based OUYA console. The current version of this system that was sent out to Kickstarter backers has been criticized for a number of issues, ranging from a lacking software library to an undesirable user interface and controller. Generally, it sounds like what you might expect to find as an early adopter.
"We will be making OUYA review units available in early to mid-May so that you are able to review the more complete consumer experience and prepare your coverage in time for the June 4th retail launch," a representative told GamesIndustry International. "To clarify for you -- OUYA has sent no review units out to press. Any reviews you have seen online are a result from individuals who received early backer units from supporting our Kickstarter."
This rep said the current phase will be used "to test our eco-system and fine-tune the experience" for the wider OUYA audience. "The software, store, games will continue to evolve and grow, and as early backers who have exclusive access during this period before launch, we want you to be a part of that process," reads a post on the official blog. We'll be watching.
