New Ouya model will be released every yearNew models to have better processors, etc.
Ouya, the upcoming Android-based TV console, will not be a one-time release. According to Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman, there will be a new system every year.
“Our strategy is very much similar to the mobile strategy,” Uhrman told Engadget at DICE Summit. “There will be a new Ouya every year. There will be an OUya 2 and an Ouya 3.
“We’ll take advantage of faster, better processors, take advantage of prices falling. So if we can get more than 8GB of Flash in our box, we will,” she said.
Uhrman assures, however, that all Ouya titles will be backwards compatible.
“The games will be tied to you, the gamer,” she said, rather than the games being tied to your hardware.
The first Ouya will arrive next month for those who backed the project when it was on Kickstarter, in April for those who pre-ordered it on the official website, and in June at retailers.
