The folks over at XBMC have announced they are in talks with the folks over at OUYA to ensure compatibility. This is really exciting for those that are looking forward to this $100 Android game console.
Maybe it was inevitable. Maybe it was because of the hundreds, if not thousands, of demands on Twitter, in blogs, on Facebook, in Reddit, and in Kickstarter comments. Maybe it’s because many of Team Ouya support XBMC, and nearly a third of Team XBMC members are Ouya backers.
Regardless, we are delighted to announce that XBMC will be working with Ouya to ensure that XBMC works well on the Ouya platform. Ouya’s Android underpinnings and XBMC’s work on Android (soon to be merged into master, pending final sign-offs!) will dramatically speed up that effort, as will early XBMC dev access to Ouya prototypes.
The conversation between our two teams is young, but talk is ongoing and positive. We look forward to providing more exciting news on this front as it develops.

Just the thought of a $100 gaming console excited me, purely for the fact that I can’t afford to drop $500+ on every new console. Putting that aside, just think of the hacks and mods that will be unleashed once this console hits the streets.
