I fail to the connection between these and mobile games.
The Ouya and Gamestick were on the big screen. Were those not mobile games? No touch screen controls? The controllers have a touch screen, and one of the advertised features is being able to use smartphones as touch screens. If you don't think touch controls are going to be a part of this thing in a semi-substantial way, you're crazy! No micro-transactions is pretty nice, but I know a lot of paid mobile games that don't require you to pay for things after you've purchased them. As far as local multiplayer and physical media, the Nintendo Switch seems to have those bases mostly covered.
When I say mobile games, I mean the presentation of the games. Shark Shark has a goofy ass font at the top and visuals definitely look like a cheap mobile game. Safecracker looks like a bad flash game from 2002. The best looking games were the circuit racer, which looks like a Gamecube game at best, and the skiing game, which looks pretty neat, but definitely not spectacular.
I'm not horribly impressed.
