Razer acquires Ouya

Razer - a famous gaming product manufacturer has officially acquired Ouya (a startup that pioneered Android console Gaming a few years ago) ,the startup company , which produced the iconic Ouya console powered with the then powerful Tegra 3 soc was a crowdfunded project stated for a $100 off the shelf price , although the project was somewhat of a success for the company , the product came out a bit too late and this made the hardware kind of obsolete eventhough the Ouya game store had titles pre set on a subscription and a open appstore for devs , the project dissolved into pages of history as Nvidia and other companies including Razer stepped into the Android console world .

Unlike ouya , which quickly ran out of funding , Razer's Android console project is still running active , the company recently announced the Forge TV console which features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 soc .The recent acquisition of Ouya signals a possible merger product employing Ouya's experience and Razers awesome design language to form a awesome looking device which will rival Nvidia's dominance in the segment .
