This is awesome news.  The popular video game system which started from a Kickstarter 2 years ago now accepts Bitcoin as a payment option.  This really shoots things into the mainstream:

I ain't even an Android user and I have read several reviews about it, and they got a Wikipedia page, check it out.

I'm currently mining litecoin with my OUYA right now. 130 h/s, and the thing is HOT.

*I suggest you do not do this, I don't know how long my OUYA will last.*

OUYA has some pretty bad ratings though, not even sure people will buy this. It's a great concept, but was just executed wrongly. However, perhaps accepting bitcoins may boost their sales by just a tiny bit. Smiley

I don't think there are any good news to compensate for the mixed signals we are receiving from china today.

Seems like every time I log onto a tech blog ouya is being bashed for something they did.

Ouya has sold over 100k consoles in only 6 months.  The games are actually getting quite a bit better as developers now have had 6 months to work on things.  This is somewhat big news I would say.  Another major US merchant accepting bitcoin.

This should attract more people to Ouya and vice versa in my opinion
