OUYA is a new kind of game console for the television that brings together an open development experience – where any creator can publish a game to the living room – with an accessible and affordable console at $99, and where most games are free to try. OUYA supports both the downloading and streaming of entertainment content in stunning 1080p HD quality. OUYA was envisioned by founder and CEO Julie Uhrman, and beautifully designed by award-winning designer Yves Béhar.
The OUYA is a 75-millimetre (2.95-inch) cube designed to use with a TV as the display via an HDMI connection. It ships with a single wireless controller, but it can also support multiple controllers. Games are available via the OUYA Discover Store or they can be side-loaded.
The OUYA Controller is a typical gamepad with dual analogue sticks, a directional pad, 4 face buttons (labeled O, U, Y and A) and pairs of back bumpers and triggers. It also includes a single-touch touchpad in the center of the controller.<ref>http://www.engadget.com/2013/03/28/OUYA-hands-on/</ref> The OUYA controller also has magnetically attached faceplates which enclose the 2 AA batteries, one on each side of the removable plates.
Alternate controllers may be used with the console (including those from the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii) but only for compatible games.<ref>http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/119164-OUYA-works-xbox-360-ps3-controllers-wirelessly</ref><ref>http://indiegames.com/2013/05/matt_thorsons_towerfall_descen.html</ref>
