I backed it and will be receiving one in the first/second shipment wave.
These smaller "indy" consoles will indeed at least be a few more falling pebbles that help to get the avalanche of big console collapse rolling.
Many of today's general console consumer understand that their console, whatever the brand, is just a cheap PC hooked up to their tv. They also want more and more PC-like features available to them. The only thing that will keep people buying the big 3 consoles will be exclusive titles. If game devs offer these to newly developed and more open indy consoles (once they can match specs and still keep price lower,) it will severely hurt their sales. It won't happen overnight, and the Ouya wont do it alone, but with the lifespan of last "nex-gen" consoles being 6+ years, I see this next wave (wiiu, ps4, 720) being the last in line before a MAJOR business model change is needed by anyone in the gaming arena.
