So last week it was announced that the Ouya is going to have OnLive on it. Frankly I expected to see a lot more on that, but it didn’t seem to make much of an impression. Just another case of technology converging.
Of course the way I see this potential alliance is different. It means a service that streams games (that don’t run on Android) is going to be playable on an open Android device. Or in short, your $99 Ouya is going to let you play stuff that you’d normally need a far more powerful machine for. Sure you have to pay for the service, but we’re talking quite a benefit here.
Yet, I saw a lot less speculation on it, so let me speculate more – and extend this.
