Well, there is a DS release of Mario 64, but I digress.

the problem with emulators as a selling point is that, well, if you can figure out how to get them to run on an Ouya, you can get them to run on you PC, which you'll need to find the ROMs in the first place. In that case, you can run emulators on your PC, hook that up to your TV, buy some controllers, and you're all set. So, personally, I don't find the Ouya an attractive emulation solution.

Yep, if I ever wanted to play those games I could just get an emulator. Or just pull out my n64 :P.

Also, "run at maximum possible speed" to move quickly through the boring parts.

While on the one hand, putting all these games on PC emulators is cool, I would totally be willing to spend 60$ (which is about the difference between a new Ouya and buying a controller and the 30+ ft of cable needed to hook my pc into my tv) to get all that stuff fully functional and all the games in a big store instead of having to download emulators, keep them up to date, and then hunt for ROMs.

I have no idea if the Ouya does make it that easy, but if it does that'd certainly be worthwhile.

It doesn't. You still have to hunt for ROMs. The Emulators may be somewhat fiddly like they always are. So, an Ouya is not a better option when it comes to emulation. Certainly not plug & play.

I've heard that it doesn't live up to the hype at all, but if you want to emulate up to an N64 or watch video on it, it's perfect. Honestly, for $100, I feel dumb to have expected anything better.
