In the world of console gaming, multiplayer is a must. Whether it be split screen or online, PVP or co-op, many games have a multiplayer option. Not to mention, with the popularity of online gaming via Xbox Live and the PlayStation network, it has never been more important.
Today we learn that Ouya will 'officially' support online multiplayer later this year. So what does that mean? It means that local and online multiplayer is currently 'supported' its just on the developer to make it happen, there is no official Ouya network yet. Once it is official, it would give devs the ability to plug their games into the official service and take advantage of buddy lists, achievements, leader boards etc.
This would open the door for a more inclusive and interactive online multiplayer experience, which I definitely think Ouya needs to succeed in the gaming market today. What do you think? Are you an online gamer? What are your favorite games to play online?
