OUYA revises Free the Games Fund to lower project goals, reduce exclusivity

OUYA revises Free the Games Fund to lower project goals, reduce exclusivity

It looks like outspoken indie devs are finally getting their wish: OUYA is revising the rules for its “Free the Games” fund. The matching contest (which provides additional funding to Kickstarter campaigns that meet certain goals) has come under fire recently due to OUYA’s tepid response to exploitation controversy. One developer, Sophie Houlden of Rose and Time, even pulled her
game from console’s marketplace, accusing the company of being “incapable of ever correcting their mistakes.” Now, it seems, the OUYA is ready to take a stab at doing just that, modifying the contest guidelines to lower pledge requirements, reduce participant exclusivity terms and limit loopholes.

Projects applying to the fund now only need to reach a minimum pledge requirement of $ 10,000 (down from $ 50,000 previously), and to prevent exploitation of the system, every $ 10k a project raises must be funded by at least 100 individuals. This is a direct response to criticism of the fund’s backing of Gridiron Thunder, which raised $ 171,009 from only 183 backers (Gridiron Thunder has since withdrawn from the program). Exclusivity requirements are now scalable too, and last for one month for each $ 10k funded to a maximum of six months. According to OUYA’s Julie Uhrman, these changes are designed to protect the original intent of the fund, but suspicious projects will be still be reviewed on a case by case basis. “You need to play by the spirit of the fund as much as the rules. We can’t account for every loophole,” write Uhrman on the company blog. “So, if we, or our community, feel you are gaming the system, we will review your project (and consult with our developer friends for their advice) and determine whether to fund it or not.” OUYA continues to explain the changes in an accompanying video (at the source and after the break), promising that if these changes don’t fix the program, that they’ll continue to tweak the rules until developers are satisfied.

AllThingsD: carriers indicate lower than usual iPhone 5s stock ahead of Friday’s launch

If last week’s announcement got you all worked up about a new Apple handset, you may have to wait a little while longer. AllThingsD reports that sources from multiple US carriers are showing “grotesquely” low inventory leading up to Friday’s iPhone 5s launch. It’s worth noting that stock numbers typically fall short of the demand (especially at the start), but it seems that this release may be even worse than year’s past. Of course, with a rainbow of other options hitting shelves on the same day, perhaps the high-end model isn’t demanding the same amount of attention this time around.

Asus to release smaller, lower priced Windows 8 tablets this year

Asustablet600_large

After months of rumors that smaller, cheaper Windows 8 tablets are on the way, Asus will reportedly release such a tablet later this year. Jerry Shen, Asus’ CEO, also told the Wall Street Journal that he believes prices for Windows 8 tablets will drop to an average of $ 300 before the year’s end. Currently, most Windows 8 tablets are priced around $ 400 to $ 500, with displays of about 10-inches, so a cheaper option would give Windows a chance to compete more directly with the likes of Apple’s iPad Mini and Google’s Nexus 7.

Microsoft knows all this, and knows that it needs to get into the mini tablet game. So far, Asus appears to only be joined by Acer with plans to create a smaller Windows 8 tablet. On Friday, we saw an an 8.1-inch Acer…

DOJ identifies lower frequency spectrum as key to wireless competition

DOJ identifies lower frequency spectrum as key to wireless competition

The Department of Justice has provided the FCC with new recommendations for governing spectrum auctions, and with a heavy emphasis on leveling the playing industry, the searchings for are most likely to draw the ire of AT&T and Verizon. In its briefing, the DOJ made its case that the nation’s 2 largest carriers presently hold market power, which is due to the heavy concentration of lower regularity spectrum (below 1,000 MHz) designated to the 2 incumbents.

According to DOJ officials, “This outcomes in the 2 smaller nationwide carriers having actually a somewhat decreased ability to contend, especially in rural areas, where the expense to develop out coverage is higher with high-frequency spectrum.” Although the DOJ never came right out and claimed it, one can quickly surmise that it’s leading the FCC to establish rules that favor smaller carriers– particularly Sprint and T-Mobile– in future low-frequency spectrum auctions. In the DOJ’s viewpoint, an incumbent carrier would should demonstrate both convincing evidence of ability constraints and an effective use of its present licenses in order to get added lesser frequency spectrum. Otherwise, the chance exists for AT&T and Verizon to snap up licenses simply in attempt to damage competitors.

Provided that the FCC and DOJ share the duty of ensuring competition in the marketplace, it appears unlikely that this latest brief will fall on deaf ears.
