Xbox Creator Ed Fries Working on New Console
Ed Fries, one of the core team behind the original Xbox has apparently put his support behind a new Android-based console costing $99 and coming from a company called Ouya.

The AFP news agency reports that, "The Ouya (is) a $99 games console concept, proposes free to play games and a customizable system that is 'built to be hacked'."

The report also states that, "Notable backers include Ed Fries, best known as the co-creator of the orginal Xbox, Muffi Ghadiali, principal product manager for Amazon's Kindle devices, Amol Sarva, founder of mobile communication service Peek, and Pete Pham, co-founder of webcasting app Color."

Up front, however, is "Yves Behar, the Swiss designer of the One Laptop Per Child laptop and tablet, Puma's Clever Little Bag, and the cuboid set-top box for TV channel Canal+..."
