A new partnership between Android gaming hardware companies OUYA and Wikipad, Inc. will bring the OUYA’s entire library of video games to Wikipad’s current and future devices.
The Los Angeles-based Wikipad, Inc. manufacturers the NVIDIA Tegra 3-powered Wikipad 7 tablet and is currently developing the Gamevice controller, the latter of which brings console-caliber controls to modern mobile devices starting with a model designed for Apple’s iPad Mini.
Since launching in June of 2013, the Kickstarter-funded OUYA console has amassed a library of nearly a thousand games, which includes a number of exclusive titles. Now Wikipad 7 owners can access all of those OUYA games in addition to the device’s already robust support for games on TegraZone, GooglePlay and PlayStation Mobile.
“We have been fans of OUYA since their tremendous Kickstarter success and watched with anticipation for a time to arise when we could offer our users the OUYA experience and thanks to OUYA Everywhere that time is now,” said Fraser Townley, President, Wikipad, Inc. in a statement. “Adding OUYA to our Wikipad gaming tablet increases the already unprecedented amount of titles and content that players can access, which is more than any other gaming platform currently available.”
Earlier this month, OUYA also added its entire game library to Mad Catz’ NVIDIA Tegra 4-powered M.O.J.O. micro console.
The Wikipad 7 is currently available to purchase from a variety of online and physical retailers for $199.99.
