I think the Ouya is a waste of time and money

Please don't bash me without hearing me out.

I like the idea, it's novel really. To lower the barriers of entry for Joe Shmo.

The problem I have with it is that the hardware is already available in our phones and tablets. I don't see the need for the "device" known as Ouya. I see a need for the "function" the Ouya is proposed to perform.

In other words I'm left wondering "why do we need another Tegra device?". We already have phones and tablets in our homes, I'd much rather see someone enable my tablet to function as a Ouya would.

I know there some controllers out there for Android and quite possibly iOS but we haven't seen a concentrated effort on this front.
