Ouya recently released a new software update to their Android-powered gaming console which includes some bug-fixes and improvements that deal with the discoverability of games.
The user-interface has been slightly tweaked— games that were previously downloaded are now found in the back row in the Discover section. Games that you don’t currently have will now be more visible… obviously a marketing move by the company. There are a few other adjustments, including the option to “bury” games that you are not interested in, and a notification that will tell you when a game has finished downloading and is ready to be played.
Ouya provided a change-log of the bug-fixes, which include:
- Fixed an issue where sometimes a system update would cancel and not inform the user, so only a blank downloading bar would appear.
- Fixed an issue where high bandwidth could actually cause performance issues and crashes while navigating menus.
- Fixed an issue that could cause the OUYA to overheat in some cases.
- Fixed a handful of crashes that could occur after browsing DISCOVER for a long period of time.
Solid update for the console, and there may me more to come in the near future regarding external storage support.
