OUYA has done a great job of listening to early adopters of their developer consoles, and has worked rigorously to address issues and concerns that have been reported. According to OUYA, they have fixed identified issues for their upcoming June roll out. Their promise to consumers, to “continue to obsess over quality and performance“.
Some of the overall improvements to the final product include both hardware and software improvements. Here is a list OUYA has for each:
Problem: Battery Covers on front of unit fell off easily during shipping.
Fix: Add additional magnets to cover plats to improve security.
Problem: Current software iteration has a few key components issues, such as lack of storage, complicated installation processes, and a lack of controller support for video players.
Fix: Added numerous software fixes, to include options not necessarily addressed by developers, such as:
- External storage for games
- Simpler game install process
- More metrics for developers
- Controller support for video players
- More payment options
No changes are planned to the UI at this time, as OUYA wants to keep it “simple, easy, and OBVIOUS!” for their users. To date, OUYA supports over 100 games, to include console exclusives, new developers, experienced developers, ports, and more. OUYA’s promise to you, “A world of great games among which you are sure to find new favorites!“. OUYA also promises that more games are in the pipeline and plan to launch them over the coming months.
To ensure continuous improvement and customer satisfaction, OUYA is asking for feedback from YOU! They are holding a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) event the beginning of May, and welcome feedback through their website.
