Ouya to become 'ecosystem,' will allow games to run on other devices

However, they've clearly done something right, as the Android-based platform has managed to secure a library of over 500 games. 2014 will see the Ouya ecosystem expand with a "version 2 console--and potential compatibility with a slew of third-party devices.

"One thing you'll start to see is Ouya on other people's devices," company CEO Julie Uhrman said. "Think of it similar to the Kindle strategy, or Google's Android itself. Ouya is more than just that reference device, it's an ecosystem that really can live on other people's devices."
