Ouya has released an over-the-air update for its Android gaming console. The system update, Chupacabra, will add passthrough support for XBMC and new UI improvements. The update is available now.
Ouya, the $99 Android game console that started as a Kickstarter project, went on sale at several retail locations in the US and UK today but some sources like Target and Amazon have already sold out.
The $99 Ouya game console will go on sale in retail stores on June 4th, just over two months after the Android-based console starts shipping to its early Kickstarter backers.
OUYA, the Android-based game console that raised over $8.6 million in a Kickstarter campaign, has announced that the first consoles will ship to those first backers on March 28th.
The team behind Ouya asked Ed Fries, the former head of game publishing at Microsoft, to join their team early on. Now he speaks out about how he sees Ouya fitting into the gaming marketplace.
Ouya, the upcoming Android-based $99 game console, has completed its Kickstarter fund raising campaign with nearly $8.6 million collected, well over its goal of $950,000.
While Ouya may never dethrone traditional consoles, it's clear from the device's Kickstarter campaign that people also want something different. Voicing your support through your wallet can only help.
A start up project to launch a $99 Android powered game console called Ouya has been discovered and it has some interesting people on board as part of its team.
