The OUYA Will Be Around The Size of a Rubik’s Cube

English / Uncategorized / Writing

Gizmodo is hosting an online Q & A session with the designer of OUYA game console, and he’s got some really interesting answer, especially regarding the size of the main console:

Q: With digital distribution media becoming more and more popular, do you think the standard tower like shape that is used by the current generation of consoles will continue to be used?

A: I don’t know what others are doing in the future, but we have made a deliberate attempt to go away from current shapes…our console is quite small, around the size of a Rubik’s cube, and so it will easily fit anywhere in a room, or be easy to throw in a backpack.

Let me repeat and emphasize that sentence again. The OUYA will be around the size of a Rubik’s cube. Wow. I don’t know if this was widely known already, but i personally tought the size of this thing would be like a gamecube! To know it’s a very small sized console is very cool indeed, and they should’ve emphasized this more in their marketing material.

Or maybe there’s a reason they don’t want this to be emphasized, just in case?
