How does the ouya compare to 3DS performance?

EDIT: forget what I asked:

3DS:
15,3 Mtri/s
800 Mpx/s

Ouya
50 unlit 32 lit Mtri/s
474 Mpx/s

Xbox360 (not sure, official spec notoriously bullsit)
500 Mtri/s
8 Gpx/s

L0lwut?!!

Please explain what the hell this has to do with anything. Here's a picture of a potato.

Get that potato out of here, it doesn't have as much power as an Xbox and is therefore useless to society

Interesting side question: Why does the Ouya get more hate than something like the Wikipad or Project Sheild? Is it really so awful that poor people get to play video games too? Seriously, I don't get all the wailing and gnashing of teeth here.
Because everyone already knows those two things are stupid.

I'm glad with potatoes, Was just an idea of what was possible, not a way to compare it with xbox. A lot of games are fine on 3DS so it give an approximate performance target, even if texture fillrate seems weaker.

I hope for your sake this is a bad joke and not an actual thought that you had in your brain.

that was kind of the point: the idea that the ouya would be the only alternative, or even a good alternative, for someone on a tight budget out to play video games is hilariously out of touch with everything.

A cheap PC that can run mid-tier games would run no less than $300. And that's if you built it yourself. If you purchased it pre-built it would be in the $500 - $600 range. If you purchased a pre-built rig that was actually targeted at gaming, you would probably have to spend around $1000. Bump up all of those prices by $500 if you wanted an equivalent laptop. PC gaming has, and always will be, a luxury. There are quite a few more performance-friendly titles these days, largely thanks to indie development. But PC hardware is still not down to the $100 range.

And the PSP is not a good example. The 3000 model hardware may be $100 now, but the availability of games for the handheld has dwindled to nothing. Even GameStop has slashed their selection of PSP titles to little more than bargain-bin fodder. (the crap no one wants) And Memory sticks have grown very scarce. (they have fallen out of favor in the photography industry) The average consumer looking to get into the PSP is going to have a hard time finding physical games, or the memory necessary to take advantage of digital games.

A much better example would have been the DSi. It's also going for $100 these days, and DS games still have a significant retail presence.

<insert snarky scenario involving homeless people working in sweatshops here>

So yeah, I think that a lot of the flak that the Ouya is getting is primarily a class thing. There seems to be a rather large, vocal group of "hardcore gamers" that want to put velvet ropes around the hobby with metered signs that read: "you much be at least this hardcore in order to ride."

It's a bullshit attitude and it needs to seriously fuckin' go. You have your PS4 and Xbox 4320, who gives a shit what anyone else has. Or are you just worried that everyone else will go to the poor kids play ground and leave you all alone with your rich kid toys?

that was kind of the point: the idea that the ouya would be the only alternative, or even a good alternative, for someone on a tight budget out to play video games is hilariously out of touch with everything.

Am I out of touch? Have you seen non-gamers playing a shitty game on the Nintendo Wii lately? I have. Despite the fact that gaming is big and gaming culture is growing, the number of people that identify themselves as gamers is nothing compared to people that don't. And non-gamers are generally people that don't have time or money for (in there eyess) this kind of childish garbage. Funny thing though, you drop the console price to around $150 and provide games for $20 or less, they'll buy it. What's more, they'll enjoy it too. You are not everyone. And everyone doesn't have to like / dislike all the things that you do.

A much better example would have been the DSi. It's also going for $100 these days, and DS games still have a significant retail presence.

It also fits in an alleyway piano crate a lot easier. 'Course you have to keep it hidden all the time. Crazy Phred, who lives two dumpsters down, has a bad meth habit and might shank you for it so's he can pawn it.

I know all about being poor and liking video games, and a PC provides you with so many more options than some gimmick budget console with no real games could ever do. Nothing's going to even come close (should I really have to explain why?).
Building an OK five year old level one from used parts can cost you anywhere from a hundred dollars to nothing.

A last gen handheld is good too if you really need to play things non-stationary.

If you're really dying to conveniently play games on your TV with a controller, then your best option right now it probably to get a PS2. They're dirt cheap even if you buy a brand new one, and has a great collection of games that still hold up.


Gaming is primarily a middle class hobby for sure, but the idea of a budget console with worse games for the poor as a solution to that is insulting more than anything.
