Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman says the company wants to make its ecosystem of exclusive Ouya games available on other platforms.

The Android-based living room microconsole currently has a closed ecosystem of games and apps, but Uhrman told [a]listdaily that the company wants "to create a console platform that can live on other people's devices."

"If you think about the traditional game consoles, they're custom hardware and custom chips. To get those games, you have to buy a box for hundreds of dollars," Uhrman said. "We've always wanted to open that up. We started with a $99 box, but we always wanted to create a console platform that can live on other people's devices."

She didn't specify what devices Ouya 675 games and counting could eventually jump to, but Android tablets seem one of the most likely options. She also didn't give any time frame hints, though she said they're "jumping into the strategy with both feet this year."
