Ouya Firmware Update 1.0.328


So the Ouya team has pushed a last minute, major update to the console before its big day.  Tomorrow (today for some) is the big launch day we have all been waiting for.

The update was pretty small in size but big in changes. Check it out below:

Here is the changelog for 1.0.328:
  • Game Details page has been re-designed:
    • Images and buttons now easier to navigate
    • Selecting (Pressing the (O) button on) an image will show it full screen
    • Description text no longer flows off screen.
    • “More Info” button allows user to read full description text
    • Longer titles now accommodated better
    • Queued downloads now display as "In Queue…"

  • Download behavior changes:
    • Game downloads can now be cancelled!
    • Downloads have been limited to 1 to increase performance while navigating during a download

  1. When are you planning to use a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of 15:10 in the Games? We can't read some of the texts shown in the game.
