In an AMA session on Razer's website, CEO Min-Liang Tan answered questions regarding the future of OUYA, whose software and publishing wing was acquired by the accessory maker earlier this month. Tan revealed that OUYA's platform will be integrated into Razer's Android TV offering, Forge TV, by Q4 2015:
Those that have already invested in OUYA and have on-console credit will be able to access content for the next twelve months:
Tan said that work was underway in migrating games and content from OUYA's platform onto as many "platforms as possible," including the Play Store:
Tan also shed details on Cortex Stream, a streaming service similar to NVIDIA's GameStream that allows you to stream PC titles on the Forge TV. Tan mentioned that the service will be live sometime in the fourth quarter, and that discussions with Netflix were ongoing to make the service accessible on the Forge TV.
As for availability, Tan said that the Forge TV will be available in markets outside the U.S. in Q4, with Cortex TV integrated. For OUYA customers looking to trade in their micro-consoles for the Forge TV, Razer will be issuing details on discounts shortly.
