Android and iOS Gaming Consoles in the Works

OUYA

It is undeniable that one of the biggest selling points of Android and iOS devices is their gaming capability. This is also why a lot of consumers have a hard time picking which type of device to purchase. Imagine being able to play games like Temple Run and Angry Birds on your TV. While the Playstation 4 and Xbox One can definitely cater to the needs of hardcore gamers, most of those who purchase Android and iOS devices are only looking to while the time away playing casual games. What if there was a gaming console that can play Android and iOS games?

That is a question that may be given an answer to in the very near future. Today’s tech giants, Google and Apple, are currently racing to come up with a gaming console dedicated to Android and iOS games. Sources at Google say that the company is making this move in response to news that Apple has already started on the first stages of their development plan.

Earlier this week however, start-up company Ouya Inc. and renowned graphics card manufacturer NVidia launched the first ever Android based gaming console and controller. Priced at $99 per unit, this console is surely going to be a hit. Coincidentally, Google has been closely monitoring the sales of the Ouya console.

If the rumored plans of Google and Apple pushes through, what could this mean for Ouya? Many say that it will definitely kill the Ouya console in the market because the two giants will most likely come up with a better, albeit more expensive version. Ouya’s capability to run ROM emulated games could be its only edge.
