    Default Ouya Kickstarter Closes at $8.5 Million - Preorder Systems Available Now For April 20

    Almost 50,000 units have sold through Kickstarter, which could translate into some very healthy console sales down the line.

    This thing still sounds like one of the biggest scams in gaming history. I will not be surprised if this goes very bad and ruins most of the good will behind Kickstarter.

    They have already found a few scams on Kickstarter. But it would take one that made that much to sour it for good. I've only given to 1 kickstarter so far and that was the Double Fine one. There was a Bad Dudes sequel I was planning to send some $ to, but I don't play on a PC, so it's just me giving my money away.

    That's my concern as well. Everyone's waiting for something to come along and ruin it and this seems like a good contender.

    I've given to three: Double Fine, Republique, and just this week a duo of comic creators I enjoy started one for an original graphic novel, $15 got you the print and pdf versions.
    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    They must be there for a reason...

    We also have a lot of consoles, a lot of shooters, a lot of RPG's, a lot of movies, a lot of fast-food joints......what's your point? If some company wants to bundle in another feature, regardless of how many iterations of it are out in the wild, why be a negative nancy about it?

    Generally, these attempts to be a media center or a DVR of some sort are usually half-assed
    Home Theater: Panasonic PT-ae4000u, 110" Carada Brilliant White Screen, PS4

    TV's are already adding (or already have) media streaming capabilities, standalone boxes are going away.

    Yep. Haven't streamed anything through my consoles since I got my new TV. Only using the Roku box in the bedroom until I can get a 42" smart TV for the right price, then that think is going on craigslist for $20.

    So if one of the next PS or Xbox doesn't have media capabilities and the other one does, it'll be "no big deal"?

    And on the flip side, there will be people here that have ONLY used their console as a media movie device. Shit, people have said so all the time here, saying they don't even play games on their console anymore, just use it for movies. Point?

    I'm curious, why would you think this is a scam? I can see this failing of course, but you really see them just like, taking everyone's money and running? I can't imagine that happening, especially with such a big campaign and so much press.

    Maybe I'm just an optimist. Or naive. Or both
