Yeah, I was hoping to port my iphone games to OUYA, for some of them that is not going to happen. That doesn't mean I'm not gonna make games for the console, but it will be new games tailored to it.
I'm not sure if the performance is entirely due to MMF's exporter. I would say about 50% of the 2D games on the OUYA performs very poor, especially side scrolling games. But I am sure most of these games were made before the developers got the console, so they had no way of knowing it was gonna be this bad.
As a fulltime indie too, I'm interested if you have found any game sales stats as of yet? I'v been googling like crazy, but nothing has come up.
