Ouya Android game consoles will be available at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Gamestop in June for $100
The Ouya Android-based game console is a tiny cube that connects to your TV and gives you access to thousands of games, but it is also an open platform for game developers. It also happens to have its roots at crowd-sourced funding, being one of the biggest success stories on Kickstarter.

And while usually Kickstarter projects have a hard time getting retail shelf attention, the Ouya is different. The Ouya console will be available at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Gamestop starting in June for a price of $99.99. Additional controllers will retail for $49.99 and will be sold at the same huge retail chains. The price for the controllers might seem a bit high, but it is justified by the fact that the Ouya controllers will have a touchpad in addition to the standard buttons.

Overall, the deal is a big win for what started as a relatively small project, lifted up by people’s enthusiasm and good management.
