The key is that it doesn’t cover any consumable in app purchases. Given that the initial pitch of the console was “Every game should be free in some capacity”, I’m sure there are A LOT of people whose game is running under the usual freemium model. Those games are now devalued by those who pick up this pass, which is really only going to attract any invested Ouya players (ie. the only ones spending money in the first place).
Long story short, Ouya just told freemium devs to shove it.
Oh shit, I’m glad that the Tegra K1 will give us real gaming at last. Those fake games I grew up playing on my NES, SNES, N64, PlayStation, etc. certainly felt lacking in their realness.
From a gameplay perspective, this looks very much like Megaman X.
