Ouya, You're Fired! (TV)

Android Consoles? Sounds average!

Good news for Ouya buyers who actually want a console that is good, as Amazon have released the Fire TV, which is available right now for $99! As you can tell, it's only available in the US, but it doesn't mean I can't talk about it! First things first, the Fire TV, isn't a games console, it's a media streaming box that can also play games. There are tons of games, TV shows and movies to stream, not to mention tons of streaming apps to download. And guess what? It can stream in 1080p. Take that, Microsoft.

The box also has voice controls that actually work (Microsoft, again!) and it's also got pretty impressive specs for a $99 box! It has 2GB of memory, it's own Graphics Card, a quad core processor, and the ability to support 1080p streaming and Dolby 5.1 Digital Surround Sound. Also, you can play many Android games and Amazon Exclusives, including Minecraft and The Walking Dead, plus developers like Double Helix Games (Strider) and Ubisoft (Everything) are said to be making games for it! All games are playable on the remote that comes with the box, but you can buy a gaming controller!

What do you guys think? Will the Fire TV up the standards of Android Consoles? Or will this just be a fad? Tell us in the comments below!
