Well it sounds like you could use it as a low cost HTPC. Also if it is actually running Android (not just android compatible) you could root it and do all kinds of cool stuff (Like streaming movies for free all day).

It is possible to get a lot more than you pay for out of this device.

Hackers welcome.

Have at it: It's easy to root (and rooting won't void your warranty). Everything opens with standard screws. Hardware hackers can create their own peripherals, and connect via USB or Bluetooth. You want our hardware design? Let us know. We might just give it to you. Surprise us!
They've said it can be rooted and encourage people to "hack it".

Also, XBMC For Android | XBMC. Just in time!

Obviously it's not going to be a contender with Playstation and Xbox, it's more for casual gamers and also allows indie game devs another platform to sell their games on. I thought that was pretty obvious though by the $99 price tag and the fact it's running Android.

It may not contend, however it may very well help indie developers get bigger allowing them down the road to have the resources and afford to release for the PS or Xbox from sales/interest on the Ouya.

Latest update, the Ouya will have/be able to run OnLive, so there solves the problem of running modern/higher graphical games.

Seriously I never understood the purpose of this thing... It's an Android console... which Android is a mobile OS... which uses outdated tech and asks people to "hack" it, meaning the security on it is horrible. The device is so light that it required weights to put it straight... it's just not meant to be.

It's like buying an Android phone with a broken screen. Completely useless...
