73% Of Ouya Owners Haven’t Bought a Game

Only 27 percent of Ouya owners have actually purchased a game for the console, with most users opting for free-to-play titles and demo downloads.

Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman revealed the stats to The Verge, adding that she believes that this is a positive figure for a newly released platform in the Android market. She also added that full versions of 13 of the Ouya marketplace’s top selling titles have been purchased by around 8 percent of players.

“I think there are a lot of social and mobile app developers that would kill for an 8 per cent attach rate on a platform that’s 30 days old,” she said. ”These numbers will grow as more gamers pick up consoles, and as we attract more developers, and I believe that by the end of the year, we’ll see a few developers telling us they’ve made more than a million dollars on Ouya.”

The bestselling title on the marketplace at the moment is TowerFall, which has earned its creator $21,000.
