We talked about the OUYA game console in August and the OUYA team has now released more information. The OUYA console will support 1080p games and will run the latest Jelly Bean Android. The first developer samples will be ready in December.

Very few 1080p PS3 games exists and none exist for the Xbox 360. Yet, the $99 OUYA game console aims to deliver gaming in up to 1080p resolution from a tiny little box.

All games will have a free-to-play element so users can try it before buying. This cloud be either a demo, a few levels of the game, a free game with in-game paid content – or a completely free game. The game controller will resemble what we know from current game consoles but also have a trackpad (no multi-touch).

The OUYA will run Android Jelly Bean (previously Ice Cream Sandwich but plans have been updated) – the same as the latest Google tablets and smartphones. The hardware includes a quad-core Tegra 3 chip, which means that performance is probably on par with the best tablets today.

The testing of the game console is in process and game developers will receive a console in December. The final product is still planned for March 2013. Sony and Microsoft, are you ready?
