Chinese Android console design rips off Xbox One and PS4

A Chinese Android console has totally ripped off the design of both the Xbox One and PS4.

Featured on the Chinese version of Kickstarter, the brand-new Android console sports a very familiar design to the Microsoft and Sony boxes.

Called the OUYE, the copyright-infringing design has the slanted black of the PS4 combined with the top grille feature of the Xbox One. It seems to run some modified version of Android.

The OUYE’s controller is basically a slightly tweaked version of the Xbox One controller, with some additional buttons sat where you’d usually find the Xbox orb.

According to the Kotaku website, the OUYE will be more powerful than the Ouya. The specs, which are a bit dated, indicate otherwise.

The crowdfunding campaign will begin later this month with a target set to $15,000 (£9,000). If funding is successful, the console will cost around £70 with one controller.

Chinese commenters aren’t particularly happy about the console due to its blatant PS4 and Xbox One mimicking.

The Shenzhen company behind the new box claims that it took a year and three months to build the console’s “unique design”.
