    Ouya Partners With XBMC Media Player As Kickstarter Reaches Final Countdown




    As we fast aproach the last day of the Ouya Android console Kickstarter campaign, the dev team has announced a partnership with XBMC. The award-winning open source media player and entertainment hub will be available on the platform at launch."Maybe it was inevitable," begins the latest Backer update from XBMC's Nathan Betzen. "Maybe it was because of the hundreds, if not thousands, of demands on Twitter, in blogs, on Facebook, in Reddit, and in Kickstarter comments. Maybe it's because many of Team OUYA support XBMC, and nearly a third of Team XBMC members are OUYA backers."
    "Regardless, we are delighted to announce that XBMC will be working with OUYA to ensure that XBMC works well on the OUYA platform. OUYA's Android underpinnings and XBMC's work on Android (soon to be merged into master, pending final sign-offs!) will dramatically speed up that effort, as will early XBMC dev access to OUYA prototypes.
    "The conversation between our two teams is young, but talk is ongoing and positive. We look forward to providing more exciting news on this front as it develops."
    As well as XBMC, the Ouya will also support TuneIn online radio.
    XBMC support was one of the first things players - even our readers -wanted from the Ouya since it was announced, and we're looking forward to seeing what else it has in store.

    Yeah would be pretty sweet if that option was still there. I'm just looking forward to getting one in my hands (or should i say hand as it is quite small).

    It's mainly going to be used for streaming and media play back for me though.

    Agreed it seems i would use it in the same fashion as you if it stays 99 bucks when it goes retail its a good deal!
