OUYA: The Android Emulator that Hooks Up to Your TV

Well, that didn’t take long. Because OUYA is Android-based, that means it can run pretty much anything designed to run on an Android platform – and that includes Android emulators for other game platforms. Famous SNES emulator SuperGNES and N64 emulator Mupen64plus are already working on the system, with videos of the platform playing Street Fighter II Turbo and Super Mario 64 circulating around the inter-tubes.

Cue a long lifespan for OUYA, fueled largely by its ability to play software that’s 100% unlicensed and in many cases 100% illegal.

    And the OUYA’s true life purpose is revealed haha.


    my pc is connected to my big screen for 4 years now. i honestly do not understand why the hell would anyone be excited about this simply because he can stream youtube and emulators on his tv… ANY PC can do that
