Some Exciting Announcements Out of the OUYA Camp

Ouya is back in the news again. While most of you have probably heard of the Ouya before, for the few who haven’t it is an Android based game console that managed to raise a staggering and record-holding $8.6 million via Kickstarter not too long ago.

So what are they going to use that money for?  Obviously they have used a majority of the funds to smooth the development of the first release console.  But they will use some of it for something a bit more exciting, a 3D version.  We don’t know anything else other than it will offer stereoscopic gaming on compatible 3D TVs.

According to Pocket-Lint, not only will this system be released in the U.S. for $99, but will also hit the UK with a price tag of £99 available March of 2013.

Pocket-Lint also reported that when the standard OUYA is finally released, it will be an Amazon.com exclusive, if true, it could limit the market, which could be what they want, considering this is more of an enthusiast indie console and not so much of a mainstream device like the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.  Still, with NVIDIA unveiling a much more advanced handheld Android system just yesterday, they might adjust their marketing plan.

Are you still excited for the OUYA release or not?

    Yes I am and have preordered, but I am considering cancelling – it’s bad form from ouya leaking ouya 2 details before the first version has even shipped, suggesting a very short lifespan before the second is released

      This is just a rumor and even if they did release a later version that supported 3D, you’d have to have a compatible television to utilize it.

      Theres a new iphone every year, why shouldn’t there be an Ouya? Why would you cancel before trying it? give it to a kid or something if you don’t like it. The difference between Android based devices and Xbox is they come with a new model every six months, by the time my mk808 arrived the gk802 was on ebay.

      I kind of agree with what Jeremy said below. I mean if we waited to purchase electronics in fear of a new version right behind it, we’d never pop on any. If you don’t cancel it, let us know what you think of it!
