Android-based Ouya console is hackable and free-to-play


Los Angeles-based company Ouya is developing a $99 Android console that will be "built to be hacked" and feature games that are free to play.

Each console will be a self-contained dev kit, and the publishing model will stay closer to mobile and social games than traditional home gaming.

Ouya signed Yves Behar (designer of One Laptop Per Child) and other advisors, including former Microsoft VP Ed Fries and Amazon Kindle's Muffi Ghadiali, to help with the project.
