OUYA confirms further moves into China with Alibaba deal

OUYA says its game service will arrive on Alibaba’s Tmall set-top box, which apparently already has streaming options for more robust games (the press release calls out soccer game Winning Eleven 2014 and fighting game Street Fighter 4). As far as control is concerned, there’s no mention of OUYA shipping its gamepad to China — OUYA reps tell us the company isn’t shipping a controller to China, and that Alibaba sells its own for the Tmall set-top box. – Ben Gilbert, Engadget

That’s quite an investment considering OUYA’s poor-to-tepid response in the United States[.] – Ben Gilbert, Engadget
