Hmm, I'm not very up to date with the performance figures of these ARM devices; so what would the OUYA be roughly equivalent to, in terms of previous consoles? The original Xbox?
Mostly comparable to Xbox at graphics, but with a lot more CPU performance.

For the stuff I do I wouldn't touch java with a 100meter pole, it never lived up to what it promised.

Its further not going to work for the same reason as the Sony Xperia doesn't work, while there are tons of games already made for Android, they will not be updated to work with a non touch screen device. If you wanted o use it as an emulation box you'd still be stuck with the on screen controls since the emulator would still be written exclusively to run on a touch screen.
But you would trust the likes of MS/Sony with your right to privacy?

How many of those already long existing android games play properly with a controller and don't still display on screen controls?

I don't think you have played a single OUYA game to speak about it's performance nor you have done a comparison
I am not an OUYA advocate but I have always been against throwing stick and stones without anything actual
You have been bashing OUYA since its first announcement as is you did accept it as a personal archenemy
