Newsbrief: Ouya is going cross-platform. The microconsole company today announced that its entire catalogue of games, including those that were originally Ouya exclusives, will soon be available to purchase and play via the MOJO Microconsole.

Later this spring you'll be able to grab the Ouya app for the Mad Catz Microconsole, and download games through the Ouya store. This is part of Ouya's Everywhere initiative, through which the company is looking to get its Ouya catalogue on as many devices as possible.

Mad Catz also took the opportunity to note that it has reduced the price of its own microconsole, down to $199.99 from $249.99.

The final nail in the OUYA coffin?

How is this a nail in the coffin? It looks like they are expanding their player base through more consoles, not sure how that constitutes a negative when it comes to growth?

I'd also like to see OUYA store on NVidia Shield. It makes sense, since NVidia have a stake in OUYA, and if they can persuade those studios producing shiny Tegra Zone apps to get on OUYA as well, it'd give a real solid backbone to the OUYA games library (around which the rest of the store can be fleshed out).

After that, next step has to be getting integrated into TV sets. The real 'prize' is to get OUYA into the hands of casual consumers. The sort of people who won't buy a dedicated $400 next-gen console, but for whom the sort of quick, fun, cartoony games the OUYA has right now, appeal. Though the problem then becomes one of making them aware the store exists and to use it (as has been the problem for 'Smart-TV')
