When the OUYA kickstarter first launched I don't think anyone would have anticipated the amount of support it would receive and man did it receive a lot of support. The OUYA kickstarter capped off yesterday well above its initial goal of 950K and ended at a little above 8.5M with over 63, 000 backers. This is clearly a node to the big three, OUYA is here and it's going to be big.
Since it's announcement there have been several big reveals about OUYA; the first is that it will allow for streaming games using Onlive, they've announced their first 1st party title-Human Element, and several media streaming services will also be part of OUYA including VEVO, iHeartRadio, XBMC and TuneIn. Additionally OUYA has partnered with Square Enix to put Final Fantasy III on the console.
OUYA is causing quite a stir and you can expect more news before anyone can get their hands on the console which is expected to ship to backers in March 2013 and to everyone else sometime after.

There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above. In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can
Sony and Sucker Punch have announced today Ghost of Tsushima: Legends a free piece of DLC coming to their game later this fall. It's a new online cooperative multiplayer mode. It's a new experience outside of the standalone game and does not feature Jin. "We designed Legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. You’ll be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play Legends in groups of 2-4 players. Each player can choose from one of four different character classes: the Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin. Each class has unique advantages and abilities that we’ll reveal in the future." Ghost of Tsushima: Legends offers a Survival mode with enemies getting increasingly more difficult as you progress including a new Oni enemies with supernatural abilities. In addition, there will be a 4-player Raid made available after Legends gets released. Checkout the trailer and press release for further details. I'm excited to try this
I have to say, the more I see of Watchdogs Legion, the more I can't wait to get my hands on it. Watchdogs Legion is shaping up to be quite the ambitious game. This trailer shows us some more of the characters we can recruit and play as: from the run-of-the-mil to a professional. We even get a glimpse of this games "bad-guy". Watchdogs Legion is set to be release this October 12th. What I really like is the player choice in this game. We can recruit based on our play-style.
