Nvidia is reported to be working closely with Ouya to create the “best Tegra 3 device on the market”.
The words are said by Ouya’s CEO Julie Uhrman who also admits that their team has not “worked very much with Google”. The Ouya console will be running Google’s mobile operating system, Android as well and in order for the console to operate at a phenomenal ability, the firm has hooked up with chip manufacturer Nivida for help.
Tony Tamasi, Nvidia’s senior vice president of content and technology commented on their new relationship:
We have a dedicated team working with OUYA to ensure that Tegra 3’s performance is being maximized. They’ve been amazing to work with. The rich catalog of optimized and differentiated TegraZone games — along with the work being done with developers — ensures a flourishing ecosystem is in place and continues to grow.
Once done, the Android based game console Ouya will sell on Amazon, GameStop, Target and Best Buy for just a $100. That will also include the controller and for an additional one, you can pay a separate $50.[via Engadget]
