This week creators of the OUYA Android gaming console that successfully raised more than $8.5 million via a Kickstarter campaign, have announced that their new open source games console will soon be available to purchase on the street.
OUYA will be arriving with retailers such as Best Buy, Target and Gamestop in June 2013 and will be priced at $99, and OUYA are reporting that they are taking more and more pre-orders every month.
“OUYA was created in 2012 by Julie Uhrman, a video game industry veteran who saw an opportunity to open up the last closed game platform — the TV. Julie and an initial team of game developers and advisors brought the concept to life, with the help of Yves Behar and fuseproject, and took OUYA to Kickstarter in July of 2012. It became one of the most successful Kickstarter projects ever, with tens of thousands of backers pledging to help bring OUYA to life. OUYA’s first consoles will ship in early 2013.”
The OUYA is also available to pre-order from the OUYA website. For more information on the new OUYA Android game console jump over to the OUYA website for details.
