The upcoming OUYA console will get a hardware refresh every year.
Speaking at the DICE Summit (and reported by Slashgear), OUYA CEO Julie Uhrman confirmed that the company will upgrade the system once a year, taking advantage of faster and more powerful processors, yet still maintain the $99 price.
Uhrman also stated that due to the console’s Android-based OS, each new annual console will maintain backwards compatibility, although older consoles would obviously be able to run advanced titles, such as 3D. The new consoles will also take new naming conventions eg. OUYA 2, OUYA 3 and so on.
The OUYA will be released this coming June.
