interesting, but it's using cloud storage, which i find unreliable since you wouldn't be able to play anything if your internet goes down.

Isn't it the same concept like OUYA?

I was going to mention OUYA too. How many of these things are there going to be? There is the GameDock for iOS too, which looks awesome for running iPhone games on a TV with controllers.

As long as it's Android and iOS, I'd say we are in pretty good shape, just another resolution to support and some key-mapping for controllers.

Why not just get a Raspberry Pi running Android? I think they have a TV-Out and would support a USB controller.

raspberry pi is very slow and have limited memory compared to this android sticks
so is is no fun to use it.
