After originally asking for a measly $950,000, this morning, the Android-based Ouya console ended its run on Kickstarter with nearly $8.6 million in user donations. Prospective buyers can now officially pre-order the console on the company’s website. In the U.S., one console and one controller will cost $109, one console with two controllers will be $139, and one console with four controllers will run you $199 with all orders include a $10 shipping charge.
So that’s that. Ouya is a thing and with nearly $9 million it will likely be a thing for a while. Ouya has piqued the interest of a lot of people in the industry and some seem to be fully behind it whilst others look far less interested. Where do you stand?
