Would You Buy A $100, Open Source, Android Gaming Console Designed By Yves Behar?

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), $US100 will buy you the box, a developer’s kit, and all the free games you can play.

The vision is that any developer will be able to publish their games on the platform, free of charge, but all the games will be free to play as well. I have a difficult time seeing how this could possibly work out but I’d love to be convinced otherwise. What say you? [via The Verge]
