  • The concept of an Android based gaming console is rather new. The Ouya project started with a Kickstarter funding campaign that has hit over $7 million (£4.5 million) and closes later this week, with the hardware estimated to be ready for delivery in March 2013. It will probably be the first to deliver Android based gaming on a big screen TV, using a controller.


    We’ve covered news about XBMC, the award-winning free software media player designed for multiple platforms, including Linux, OSX, and Windows, soon to be available on Android. We even provided a test version, that works pretty well on newer Android devices. Currently, XBMC for Android is available through nightly builds, for Tegra 2 and NEON devices.

    Recently, the team behind Ouya announced that it has partnered with the team behind XBMC, to make it available for the console. Here is a statement from the open source media outfit:

    “Maybe it was inevitable. Maybe it was because of the hundreds, if not thousands, of demands on Twitter, in blogs, on Facebook, in Reddit, and in Kickstarter comments. Maybe it’s because many of Team Ouya support XBMC, and nearly a third of Team XBMC members are Ouya backers,”

    In the mean time, if you want to test the latest nightly builds, head over to XDA for downloading instructions and opinions from users.
