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?
