According to I Heart Nintendo, the tweet has since been deleted, but I’ll give the Ouya team credit.. they have some guts. Stupid guts, but guts nevertheless.
As the tweet explains, the Ouya can use current controllers, expand ports and be used to play all sorts of illegal emulation software.
Stay classy, Ouya!

That’s…progress? I mean, one would think that it’s…uh…progress. Technological progress has a precedent of bringing with it questions (and outright violations) of legality, so I guess this has to count for something.
Of course, it’s probably not a good idea to REVEAL the ability to give the law a good mooning on day one, so, yeah, two steps forward and one step back.
Pretty much, yeah. No clue what it accomplished, but I suppose bad press is still press. Just ask Microsoft.
