Here’s something I thought I thought I’d heard the last of years ago – the Ouya! It was supposed to take the world by storm, serving as a mini-console that not only would become a powerhouse but could forge its own path. Turns out, one of the earliest Kickstarter success stories didn’t and here we are now the Ouay a wisp in the air and a long forgotten relic.
Oddly enough, the Ouya-inspired controller is from a Chinese manufacturer, ViGRAND and serves as an unofficial controller for the Nintendo Switch.
The controller utilizes Bluetooth 3.0 and comes with a 380mAh lithium battery, lasting roughly five hour of use and takes around three hours to charge. There is also built-in gyro support and dual motors for rumble, and lastly, no NFC support for those amiibos of yours.
Costing roughly $25 USD, the controller certainly won’t break the bank, but it really serves no purpose when the existing controllers are more than adequate. If you’re interested, you can buy one here.
