Back in early June, we reported that Razer was in talks to purchase Ouya in an apparent attempt to strengthen their foothold in the gaming market. Now, a little less than two months later, Razer has confirmed that they’ve acquired Ouya’s software assets – which includes over 1,000 games – and they’ve hired Ouya’s technical and developer relations team to work on their own Android TV gaming platforms.

Ouya fans aren’t left out in the cold completely, at least not yet. Razer will continue supporting the existing game service for a year, while at the same time encouring Ouya gamers to switch over to a Forge TV. After that year is up, your Ouya will become a paperweight and not much else.

Razer doesn’t plan on keeping its newly-acquired content exclusive to their own hardware. They’ll be publishing games for other Android TV consoles under the Ouya name, and that game publishing will extend to China.

Well, that was a quick and painless way to snag a giant gaming library for the Cortex. Well played, Razer. Rest in peace, Ouya.
