Different sources confirms that the upcoming Android-powered console Ouya will feature plenty of unauthorized Nintendo consoles’ emulators at launch. Indeed an N64 emulator has already been sanctioned and included in the official store, a NES emulator will be ready on the day of the release and a SNES is in the closing stages, developed by two emulator teams.

This could be a smart move for the launch, stated that Ouya still has no launch titles…but what about Nintendo? They’re gonna be very pissed! Brace yourselves Ouya guys…

The world needs this indie riot simulator!

“As the economical crisis advances, the discontent of an entire population cannot help but outburst in Riots, where the sounds of many voices get heard at once.”

This is how Leonard Menchiari, former Editor/Cinematographer at Valve, commences his speech on the Indiegogo project. Indeed, RIOT is a turmoil simulator for PC, Mac, iOS, Android and OUYA seeking funding on the famous indie kickstarter-like site. The game will allow you to play as both manifestant and cop, to understand the riot though different points of view.

It seems like the guys behind the project are taking the mission very seriously declaring:

“The funding for the game will enable the developers to travel, document and experience live riots going on in Italy, Greece, Egypt and possibly many other places around the world (next to developing the game, buying software and hardware for development and testing).
Only comments and reports from the people joining the conflicts will be taken into consideration, attempting to depict both sides of the fight without bias, only objectivity and facts. We need you to spread the voice on an important issue through the medium of videogames. Stop listening to the lies of the media, shut down the television and get yourself in the line, to fight for your freedom of speech.

So, this is not just an entertaining light-heart game, but it comes with more deep and serious meanings. Check out the trailer

It looks like a very interesting project, and if you agree with us help this guys make it real on their Indiegogo page (the project is already funded, but you know, every penny counts) and/or voting for the game on Steam Greenlight.

Keep yourselft updated on their official website.

After last night’s announcement (from this Wall Street Journal interview with OUYA’s CEO Julie Uhrman) that OUYA will be released on next June, the Android game system is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

As said before, the OUYA will cost $99.99, it comes with one joypad, but you can get the second for an extra $49.99 (and we hope they WON’T keep the currency exchange 1:1 with € and £).

So, if you’re interested in buying the OUYA you can check this Amazon’s feature article or just go for the pre-order here.
