  • As if the Nexus Q and Nexus 7 weren’t enough, there’s yet another interesting Android device you may want to know about. Being made right now is a fresh Android game console, rumored to cost just $99. A team of developers is working on such a thing, that will bring Android games to your HDTV.

    The codename Ouya defines the project right now and at the time there’s no official license from Google just yet. The main problem is that users could easily hack the gizmo and play unofficial games using Android, a thing Google wouldn’t like. The gadget should also support streaming, since services like OnLive are more popular than ever and Sony just bought Gaikai, another game streaming bigshot, known as “Netflix for video games”. People are already connecting their Android smartphones or tablets to TVs via HDMI and DLNA, so why not take the core experience and deliver it strictly for gaming/media?

    It appears that some of the people involved in the Ouya project are the same ones who worked on big projects such as One Laptop Per Child, Jawbone Jambox, Peek and Color. The main problem here is that once this device is real it will certainly cannibalize the Nexus Q, that’s much more expensive and should do the same things with a bit of hacking.
