Razer, which acquired Ouya in 2015, said Wednesday that it would end support for the console on June 25th. After that, it'll deactivate accounts and players won't be able to access games on the server or games they've previously purchased. They also won't be able to buy new games. Players will, however, still have access to downloaded games.

Players will want to use any funds still in their accounts before the shutdown, since they have no cash value, Razer says.

The application is essentially a unity-gb emulator wrapper acting as a live wallpaper, which also includes many additional features and customization options, such as different layouts and an audio visualizer.

You can choose to either play the game yourself like you would on any regular emulator or record macros, essentially turning it into a nice animated backdrop. If you're worried about system resource utilization then don't be, as the emulator will automatically stop when you run full screen apps and games.

Voxel9 has managed to get XQEMU running on the switch. Not perfectly, but far better than anyone could expect.

Yep, you read the title right, XQEMU successfully compiles and runs on a Nintendo Switch running the new updated Linux4Tegra Ubuntu. More specifically, Voxel9 is running mborgerson's performance WIP branch, as it currently contains some much more faster optimizations than the master XQEMU branch.

For those wondering what exactly Voxel9 was using for input, he had to use a PS4 controller, as joy-cons connected as a pair don't appear to have an SDL2 gamepad mapping for them, making them undetectable by the emulator.
