How the Android Ouya console may revolutionize gaming

Whether you are an avid or casual gamer, one console you may have heard about is the Android Ouya. With a tentative release date of June of this year, the Ouya is a fully functional console which will be powered solely on the Android platform. Founded by Julie Uhrman, this system will represent the first major shift for the mobile tech giant into the market which has long been dominated by systems such as Xbox, PlayStation and the Wii.
