OUYA is a new game console for the TV and has managed to raise $2,188,680 on Kickstarter on it’s first day. This little console box costing $99 is powered by Android and is attracting a fair bit of wide scale attention. The Ouya is developed with an open design to allow you to play video games in the living room and taking advantage of everything the TV has to offer. The design sounds more like a smartphone than a gaming rig with a quad-core Tegra 3 and 8GB of storage running Android 4.0. The upscale, RF wireless gamepad’s standout is a built-in trackpad for playing mobile games alongside the familiar sticks and buttons.
Best of all, OUYA’s world-class controller, console, and interface come in one beautiful, inexpensive package. All the games on it will be free, at least to try. Anyone can make a game, because every OUYA console is a dev kit. No need to purchase a license or an expensive SDK. It’s built on Android, so developers already know how it works.
