Ouya breaks all Kickstarter records: gets double the funding in less than a day
First, let’s mention once again that this console is different because it gets rid of the third parties in publishing games and this means no licensing fees, no shipments, packaging, none of those unnecessary in this day and age expenses. Every Android game can be published and the developer sets the price - it’s that easy. Or will be, as the Ouya console is now on track to arrival in March 2013.
It packs some top notch hardware as well, running off an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chip, sporting 1 gig of RAM and 8GB of flash storage. The price? It’s just $99, and that includes one wireless controller (if you want a second, you’d need to add $30). The console is designed by Yves Behar, the person behind beautiful products like the Jawbone Jambox, and gaming industry guru Julie Uhrman is also on board.
The best thing about Ouya is that you can chime in with your ideas and shape the future of gaming consoles. Check out the Kickstarter project below, and keep on refreshing it to see how magically cash grows by the minute.

Well, certainly looks like people have high hopes for this, let's hope the ones building it can deliver. It would take alot to pry me from my Xbox... Or maybe I could just have both? Perhaps with this extra cash they can afford to bump up the specs a bit. I saw the video promo for it, they have a good start. One of their main concerns is the controller design, which is a big part of it for me. That was the dealbreaker of my choice between PS3 and Xbox, I couldn't stand the PS3 controller... It's just so clunky and weird, especially when playing most FPS.
