Ouya, the little Kickstarter Android console that was pretty popular until people actually started using it, has had a quiet year. But a new report says that Razer, who’s had there own troubles breaking the Android-based gaming market with Forge TV, might be joining forces with the little console that couldn’t.
"Jesus, I can't even watch this," the man sitting next to me whispered, fidgeting in his seat. The screen in front of us played a home video of an infant child named Joel Green, gurgling happily as he played with a bunch of golden retriever puppies.
Got an OUYA? Now, a $60 annual subscription will get you free access to all the titles available on the device. It's like the Netflix of Android gaming.
This the Ouya, the $99 tiny console that promised to be a good alternative to the all-mighty trifecta of gaming—Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo. It's now available, so does it live to the promise? Kotaku has the answer.

Ouya's CEO Julie Uhrman has announced that the company's console will buck the trend of most gaming devices, which are infrequently updated, instead offering a new version of the hardware every single year.
The open source, Android-powered games console Ouya will, according to the company's CEO Julie Uhrman, be available from Target, Best Buy, and Gamestop for $100 as of June.
The Ouya is a concept for a completely open sourced and hackable Android game console designed by Yves Behar (the guy who designed the Jambox and OLPC). When it arrives (if ever), $100 will buy you the box, a developer's kit, and all the free games you can play.
