The Android-Powered OUYA Game Console Gets a Release Date

5 years ago by in Gadgets, Tech


Designed by Yves Béhar and funded via Kickstarter, the Android-powered OUYA game console is on its way to retail. Initially seeking a mere $950,000 USD in order for production to get underway, OUYA ultimately garnered nearly $9 million USD in pledged support from heavyweight backers like Square Enix, OnLive, Namco Bandai, iHeartRadio, XBMC, VEVO, Indies, Robotoki, Plex and many more

. Founder and CEO Julie Uhrman and OUYA announced an “official” launch date of June 4, 2013 while kickstarter backers will themselves receive units as early as this month – thus allowing for a beta test of sorts and subsequent tweaks to any potential issues prior to June’s widespread release. Clocking in at about the size of a Rubik’s Cube and boasting an nVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU with 1080p HD output and 1GB of RAM – not to mention a bevy of free, downloadable games – OUYA can be pre-ordered now via Amazon for just $99 USD.
