If the OUYA isn’t attractive enough for you, it now has a competitor: the eSfere. Very similarly to the OUYA, the eSfere will contain “at least” a Tegra 3 quad core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 2 USB ports, Bluetooth, WiFi, Ethernet, and HDMI. On top of that, the controller will feature a touchscreen with an accelerometer and a gyroscope to simulate an Android phone for proper controls.
Where OUYA wants to provide you with custom tailored games, the eSfere is a more simple concept. It will come with access to the Play Store and will play any game on there. With the controller having a touchscreen, even traditional touch based games will work just fine. If you want buttons, it will come with stick on buttons and D-pads for more accurate controls. Watch the video to get a sense of its purpose.
If you want to support this console, it’ll cost you $99 for the early bird special, but there are only 2,500 of those. If you miss out, the eSfere will set you back $125. This is a bit pricier than the $100 OUYA, but it also has (arguably) good looks. You can also get vases and other items to match it, for the sake of consistency. If you want to go support it, hit the source link to Indiegogo. They’re asking for $390,000 to start production, and they only have $1,136. Help them out. Personally, I’d rather have an OUYA, but that’s just me. Will you be supporting it? Are the matching vases compelling? Tell us what you think!
