OUYA Is Set To Launch With A Variety Of Nintendo Emulators
For Kickstarter backers, the OUYA is scheduled to arrive within the next week or two. While the mainstream gaming media seems to be mocking the console, I am personally excited at what COULD happen which is why I backed the machine last year. At the very least, in the worst case scenario that the machine bombs, it will still be very usable to retro gamer's and collector's due to its extremely open nature. Among the early applications available on the machine, it has been announced that there will be emulators for the NES, SNES and N64 ready for its launch this month. The convenience and utility of this is quite exciting for a retro gamer who has a large collection of cartridges but not a lot of space and wants quick current generation access to their collection. The most interesting emulator is Mupen64Plus (Also funded through Kickstarter) which gives OUYA users access to their N64 titles without the headache associated with other systems outside of the Nintendo Wii. While the Nintendo Wii is a great system, its N64 offerings are VERY limited which is where the OUYA will offer a lot to N64 fans. What are your thoughts on the OUYA?
