console update cycle

I wonder how long the life cycle for this console will be. Tegra 4 is launching in a few months and if the projections are true high performance arm cpu's will reach Xbox 360 capabilities in 2014.
I really cannot see them releasing new ones in 4-6 increments like MS and Sony.

I don't think the specs matter very much. Ouya is targeting indie developers and for the most part those just don't have the resources to produce the expensive high quality art assets that would be needed for a high-end console. I'd say the fact it has relatively weak hardware is a bonus here.

And they can release a new one almost every year and it would still be cheaper then an XBox or Playstation ;)
