Most apps and games on Android rely on touch screen controls, to pick an item in a menu. or to interact quickly with a game (for example the popular Fruit Ninja type games). even if you having touch screen controls on a remote device will not be able play most games or use most apps, I have a "PC on a stick" Android device and its nearly unusable for most apps, even though I can connect a keyboard and mouse to it as the input required was not designed to work that way. This is why I think, unless there is some radical change in the way the touch screen control is implemented with these new devices, these android gaming systems will be doomed to failure as it will only work with a small subset of apps and games or ones specifically designed for the device.

It's a good point, and a good way of differentiating between devices.

As I understand it, Ouya and Green Throttle are working on exclusive games, while GameStick is just offering whatever's already on Google Play.

I'm just not sure any of this is really needed. I don't want to play phone/tablet games on my big screen TV. I get that it does away with the requirement of a long HDMI cable to plug into your tablet/phone if you DO, but I really don't see the point.

That being said, I'd like an OUYA or similar at the 100 dollar price point or less, just for media functions primarily. If they make SPECIFIC games for the devices, then all the better. But I really have no desire to play Cut the Rope or angry Birds on my TV.
