Razer ponders OUYA acquisition, report says

Ouya is in talks with Razer to sell itself, according to a CNET report. Currently, the companies are figuring out how to add Ouya’s staff to Razer.

Ouya’s service probably will continue once the deal has been completed. However, it would signify the challenges of competing in the the video game hardware industry.

This includes the obvious home consoles of competitors Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo and Internet-connected TV platforms, including Google’s Android TV and Chromecast, Amazon’s Fire TV, Roku, and Apple TV. Although the Ouya has been available for three years, it has been overshadowed easily by the new consoles and new iterations of the aforementioned platforms.

Nevertheless, we’ll have more coverage on this story as it unfolds.
