RIP OUYA and Forge TV, hello Shield


So I don’t know about you guys, but I was one of about six people in the world that purchased both an OUYA *and* a Razer Forge TV — these were Android-based micro-consoles. Now they’re paper weights, because in case you hadn’t heard, their servers have been permanently shut down, rendering them basically useless. Yes, one can probably root these things and use them to run emulators or something, but I’m not interested in doing that.

It’s too bad though, because I thought they had potential. They were cheap, but not shoddy, and I’ve had a lot of fun playing local multiplayer games with them with my niece and nephew.

So what to do? Well, I went out this weekend and bought an Nvidia Shield. Now we’re talking! Amazing how much power this thing packs within a tiny box. And it seems like many of these have been sold, so I’m hoping support for it won’t disappear like some other Android initiatives.

Thoughts? Anyone else out there enjoying their Shield?
