The low-cost Ouya game console got a big start a few years back when it raised more than $8 million on Kickstarter. When the console actually came out in mid-2013, the results were less than impressive. Ouya has gone through a number of changes since then, but now Recode is reporting that it has entered acquisition talks with a number of companies in the US and China.

The Mad Catz M.O.J.O. didn't exactly get a glowing review from us back in February, but bless its little heart, it's still trying. The latest official firmware update adds some significant features to the device, making its $199 retail price a little more palatable. The MOJO is now the first device to support OUYA Everywhere, which means that it gets access to the games on the proprietary OUYA store in addition to the built-in Google Play Store.

Speaking of which, access to the Play Store is being expanded as well.

If you could pay a flat fee for all-you-can-eat games on Android, would you? OUYA is hoping that the answer is yes, because the creators of the prototypical Android micro-console are now offering just such a service. OUYA owners can now purchase the $59.99 OUYA All-Access Pass from the website, which includes free access to "over 800" paid games and in-app purchases. OUYA claims this is an "over $2000 value," though a full list of the included apps and IAPs is not published.

The newest update for the Ouya game console has been made available, and it's a big one. This time the cryptozoological mascot is the infamous goat-sucker itself, the Chupacabra. It's more than a name, though. This is a notable update that addresses some of the concerns users have had about the device since launch.

The Ouya hasn't lived up to expectations, but the console is getting really affordable if you're looking for something quick and easy for living room gaming. Today's Amazon gold box deal includes the Ouya for $69.99 ($30 off retail) plus $25 in game credit. It's kind of like getting an Ouya for $45, all things considered.

The folks behind Ouya have been making some changes as of late. There was a more pricey version of the console, then the Ouya Everywhere initiative happened. Now the company has announced it will no longer require all games to have a free demo attached. Be prepared for regular paid content to start popping up in the Ouya store.

A few days ago the Ouya folks announced the Ouya Everywhere initiative and the company's intention to expand the platform beyond the one inspirational-but-somewhat-disappointing Android-powered gaming console it's put out so far. Now it's announcing its first partner, Mad Catz, the developer of the less-inspirational-but-still-disappointing M.O.J.O system. To coincide with the news, Mat Catz is dropping the price of their product down fifty bucks to $199.99.

The M.O.J.O. comes with stock Android out of the box, and there is nothing on the software side that tweaks the majority of mobile titles for hardware controls.

There were rumblings earlier this week about something called 'Ouya Everywhere.' You can take a guess at what that entails just based on the name, and you'd probably be pretty close. Ouya boss Julie Uhrman has now confirmed Ouya Everywhere is about expanding the platform beyond that one little cube.

Details are extremely limited right now. The confirmation on Ouya Everywhere only came at the end of a blog post about recent efforts to beef up the Ouya's games and software.

The Ouya's Tegra 3-based innards are getting a little old, but the console is finally starting to get a respectable game library and the controller has been tweaked since launch. Okay, maybe you don't want to spend $99 on it, but how about $85 with some free games?

Sticking with the cryptozoological theme, the Ouya folks have released the first console update of 2014 and it's called Jackalope. The update should appear on consoles in short order, and you'll have to update if you want to continue playing. However, that won't be the case next time thanks to that Jackalope magic.
