I have to enter my credit cards into a new system? This is bullshit! I don’t trust Ouya!
This is by FAR the most annoying feature of Ouya where you have to enter in financial information such as credit cards into a device that can be easily stolen or compromised due to physical presence. The only good news to offer is that you no longer HAVE to use a credit card to generate an Ouya account.
You can instead use paypal to purchase a $10 Ouya game credit and use the code as a method of registration (or purchase Ouya credit at a store like Game Stop). Yes, you still have to spend some money! But if someone hijacks your Ouya, the most they will do is burn the $10 on the account for some games which is not the end of the world! After you have logged in, be sure to go under MANAGE > ACCOUNT > PARENTAL CONTROLS and setup a access PIN so that some of the shittier games such as “Sking Fred” don’t try to trick you into exchanging real currency for virtual currency.
Alternatively if you have a depleted gift card I’d say put that in as the credit cards. That way it can’t take money from nothing.
