OUYA uses mobile games and allows the playing of these apps on an actual TV screen with an in-hand controller. The console will allow the playing of any Android games because it is always connected to Google Play. Users can expect access to other mobile services as well such as Google Movies, but the gaming is the main attraction. The OUYA holds a 1.7 GHz 4-core APU with a 12-core Geforce LP.

Microsoft has added a new technology to the video game world which may soon become a standard with every gaming console. Microsoft’s illumiRoom debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show this year and it is designed to add to the entire gaming experience. IllumiRoom works through the Xbox Kinect and it uses a dynamic light system to launch a changing display around your actual television screen to greatly enhance the visual feel and experience. The environment around the television matches that of the actual game inherently without any need for user settings.
