That all sounds pretty nice, but the micro-console is also 2.5 times the price of its closest competitor, the Ouya. Sure, it has a faster processor and supports the full Google Play Store, which means you can play pretty much any Android game (that works with a wireless gamepad). But that’s still a lot of money for an Android game console at a time when most Android games are designed for phones or tablets and not TVs.
