I can appreciate the ambition of this project..but ultimately OUYA was a colossal failure.
If their is any shenmue fans here we are getting a new sequel after the 14 year wait and I really want people to help back the project so here is the link https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ysnet/shenmue-3/description
I pledged $25 for support. So the fact that they failed, while sad, had no impact on me what so ever. I'm sad they failed, obviously I would have loved to see them be successful but they dropped the ball hard on getting backers their stuff. Had they shipped everything out in a timely manner I bet they would have done better and been well received. But they didn't. They messed up hard and now who is OUYA?
This company is the joke of the gaming industry. I warned ppl ahead of time yet they gave me #%*^ for it and look at it now. When you treat ppl like they owe you something because you have your head so far up your fat @$$ then you have a superiority complex that needs serious treatment. OUYA is dead. Finally.
God did this thing ever turn out to be a failure. You guys dropped the ball every single time it was handed off to you. I can't remember ever dealing with a business that was just so incompetent on every level. Usually companies like that go out of business in just a few years
Oh wait. That's exactly what's happening. Good. You guys failed. Good riddance.
Dunno if it's your guys thing but the guy who made the Pathfinder ACG (Mike Selinker) has a new kickstarter up:
I'm pretty sure my OUYA has bricked it self. I've left it alone for a few months, come back to play broken age, and all I see if the tiny U and darkness. Guess I'm going to have to try those ridiculous procedures to boot into recovery mode.
I'm so happy:
doesn't get the device,
mailed them and they said that the special device isn't there and they don't produce new ones,
because of that i get my money back via paypal...
What a complete fail!!! I was so disappointed once I got it, but then my smile came back once I GAVE it away ��

Ouya May Be Throwing In The Towel As It Reportedly Begins Acquisition Talks With Chinese And US Firms
Surprised there are so many unfulfilled claims in the comments. They went to commercial release. There should now be excessive legal choices available to those that have a need of them.
I wasn't happy with the hardware in the end, particularly the controller :( Just didn't work reliably, and the buttons would stick under their gimmicky battery covers.
But it shipped, and it worked enough for me to enjoy Towerfall, so I view it as an idea that was worth investing in. Who knows what else might have been inspired that's to this project actually completing. Maybe it's what finally got Steam boxes to be a thing, or helped another hardware company know what revisions to make to their own developments.
"After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign..." wtf TechCrunch? lmao
Lol that's the biggest joke I've read this year about OUYA. They are the joke of the industry given that smartphones are more powerful. If you are an indie company or game designer, then Microsoft and Sony are the way to go.
So it's been nearly a year since Julie got pissed... And how many people still have not got what they pledged for?
me 2 .. i receive the extra controller but i have not received my console + controller. ??
Sorry, I am one of the backer of OUYA, since now I still haven’t received my OUYA yet. Can u update to me please?
Thanks a lot.
We haven't received our additional controller!!! All we keep getting are messages that don't solve our issue. At least we should get the money back. Without us they would not have OUYA!
Report them for sure
I got my refund within days of reporting these bastards to the Better Business Bureau. I advise anybody else who is having trouble getting their money back do the same.
As per Kickstarter for Projects: "Backers expect to connect with you through Kickstarter so it's best to use our tools for sending updates and messages and asking for information. Avoid asking people to sign up for another service as it can be confusing and leads to errors."
Ouya should be continuing to utilise Kickstarter to deal with their KS backers, that is where people pledged, not their website or anywhere else. Just look to your right, over 8 million dollars pledged. They owe their backers much better than how, disgracefully, they have treated so many. They still have not delivered to all of their pledges. Unsure why anyone would be an ouya-apologist after watching this all unfold.
for those who haven't received a refund in my experience it takes spamming there twitter with support numbers for three month then they shall refund you, but not with shipping or any thing else you may have paid for.
simply harass them until you get refund ... that's what I did and I guess most people also did
I guess they ended up delivering 10% of the lame so-called console
Hello, it's been a while since my order shipped (almost 7 months now), but I haven't received it yet. How can I get a refund?
i bought this as a streambox and an occasional android-casual game box. Due to the controller being trash and there being no market/google play access, that latter simply doesn't exist. As a streambox (XBMC primarily) it is functional, but extremely slow. I shoulda bought a roku/Pi.
Lmao, and to think i almost got lynched by OUYA fans not so long ago when i wrote some negative comments here, and now even the fanboys turned against Ouya.
I'm so glad i opted for a refund in time. I walked out of an horrible raw deal.
People, you can ask for a refund. You know that, right? I asked for a refund, and, while it took some time, the team honored the request and refunded my money. I'm sure they're doing well enough to refund all the ppl that have serious issues on here.
In the end, I'm glad I did the refund. Not because the system wouldn't work, but because I honestly have way too many games to play with just Steam sales alone.
Stop using kickstarter to complain they have their own site now. Wouldn't you leave an unorganized comment system with 63,416 whining babies to make your own organized support site where you can get one on one help?
OUYA appeared in a KickStarter 2013 year in review email I got today: http://www.kickstarter.com/year/2013…
It said "OUYA powered up" but they left off "and EPIC FAIL'D"
Hound that dumb bitch Julie on Twitter and send mass emails to SCREWYA demanding a refund. Send more than 10 tweets and emails a day and do not stop till you get to the bottom of it. If that doesn't work go onto their Facebook and official website and demand your answers there. OUYA and Julie can shit in an OUYA bc they make great portable toilets
Last post from OUYA was june; i guess its the end of the road for the cpy.
Hello, it's been a while since my order shipped (almost 7 months now), but I haven't received it yet. What can I do?
It's already getting quiet around Ouya and I hope it will die soon.
Even with all the investment money they couldn't get some hot games.
I'll enjoy my PS3 cfw so long. Have fun!
I traded mine in on Amazon for $40.70. I was shocked they gave me that much for it. What a waste.
All who are complaining about OUYA and that stupid bitch Julie need to also take some responsibility for funding this bullshit product. For the longest time b4 this project ever completed funding there were warning signs all over in relation to the software and hardware, yet ignorant ppl disregarded these warnings and backed it anyway. Then when they realize just how pathetic the OUYA is they complain. When issues come up w Julie ppl don't realize that she doesn't give a shit about any of you and the only thing that she does care for is the $$ in your wallet.
You want to really make a statement against OUYA? Then get everyone you know to boycott the product and limit the incoming funding for the company. You want Julie to take notice of how enraged she has made the gaming world w her steaming pile of bullshit? Cut the funding. No money, no OUYA. Simple
Hey everyone, I got my Ouya right on time with right ammount of controllers and everything. It even had the piece of paper that reads: "thank you for believing" although it should say "thank you for believing in our bullshit" remember this? :https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/000/058/943/1d701166d53cb122109cfeaef93fc3d2_large.png…
It's a link to a picture oif what Ouya used to promise before they changed their motto to free to try. Their Motto changed right after I completed my purchase and it that time I just wanted to cut them down. Stop caliming for your Ouyas, claim for your money! and you'll have a quarter of what you need for a proper console. My Ouya arrived with a dent in it, the material that the console is maid of is very very poor. As well as the material for the controllers. The buttons in it are very stiff too and not ergonomic at all. The game library? Oh my god, it's like having an android phone that is cube.shaped and with a controller. It's the same apps as the fucking play store, there's nothing new about it. a few games are exclusive and all games are free to TRY not free to PLAY as they claimed before. In spit of that, EVERY SINGLE GAME IS A PAY2WIN, every single one of them, they are single player pay 2 win. Un-fucking beleivable, this console is a hoax, I solemnly regret buying this piece of Hardware (haha) and i wish I had saved that money is somthing more competent than this. Utterly dissapointed guys, don't even bother. Turned it on 2 times. First to try the console, second time to show my parents what big mistake they had done and that I was terribly sorry to ask for this. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME MONEY AND EFFORT BUY A PS4
Never got etched controllers, they were printed on.
Ouya "console" itself didn't have any etching or printing on it like promised.
Still sitting in the box in my closet because I'm too angry to touch it.
7 Month LMFAO! Sold my One already and got a PS4.
7 months later, I finally get my LE OUYA. :/
@Miggi, @AG - talk to Luis, he seems to have Julies ear...
I have not received my second paid controller? No answer to email nor tickets .... Where is our controller?
Hei sweet Julie. Many of us are still pissed. ;)
make it right, as if
how many updates did we get after the famous "i am pissed" update?
i sent julie quite a few tweets with questions
never answered any of them
all they did was blame others (shipping company), but the fact remains she didn't keep her promise: the bakers would get one before launch
instead it was launched, there are STILL backers waiting for their ouya
"to hell with those backers, we got their 8,5 million, now it's time to take more people's money for our broken product"
good luck to those still waiting and even more to people who still believe in this company
