Basically, they are still in their beta phase due to their promise to get devices out to their backers. The official launch is set for June so that give them two months yo finalize any system operations. Once the modding community at large gets a hold of this I think it will really be awesome.
Big companies and traditional tech sites are looking at this pretty narrowly. What places like xda have done to android devices is nothing short of amazing.
Yeah, my impression is that they've given it little more than the bare minimum for on board storage as a means to keep the price of the unit down. It comes with what, 8GB? That's nothing these days. Seeing as how there's no disk drive and the only means of purchasing games will be through download, you'll fill an 8GB hard drive in no time. I imagine they plan on making it super easy to plug in an external USB hard drive because of just that. Not having a big old mechanical hard drive in there like the PSXBOXs do probably had a lot to do with keeping the overall size of the units to a minimum too which should save them a few bucks in shipping.
I gotta say, I do have some reservations that the Ouya will deliver but I'm SUPER interested to see what it actually looks like. The Ouya itself might not survive, but it will more than likely be a big game changer...
