Daily Deals for March 5, 2014, featuring the OUYA gaming console
TUAW's Daily Deals
OUYA: A New Kind Of Game Console [On sale for $85, down from $125]The first thing you notice about OUYA is that, unlike everything else stacked under your TV, it's not a massive box that just sits there collecting dust.
Rather, the Yves Behar-designed OUYA is a small and elegant piece of hardware that deserves to be on display.
Born out of the philosophy that you don't need to have a big budget to create or play an entertaining video game, OUYA isn't meant to compete head-to-head with the PS3 or Xbox 360 (or their newer siblings).
Rather, they believe that everyone should have the tools and a platform to create and play games – which is why there are over 660 of them (including content from publishers such as Square Enix and NAMCO Bandai) to download and play on OUYA today with more coming all the time (and it's only six months after launch!).
Save 32% on the OUYA at TUAW Deals.
