Redently, Amazon began taking pre-orders for the Ouya Video Game Console!
Ouya was the result of a recent kickstarter campaign spearheaded by Julie Uhrman. Pre-orders are only $99 and all games are free to download and try.
“Who wouldn't want a beautiful piece of industrial design that sells for $99, plugs straight into your TV, and gives you access to a huge library of games?" – Jordan Mechner (creator of Prince of Persia, Karateka)
OUYA is about the size of a Rubik’s cube, but it plays hard in full-screen HD. It uses an nVIDIA quad-core CPU and outputs via HDMI at up to a stunning 1080p resolution. It powers on instantly. Need more storage? No problem. Just plug in an external hard drive into the USB 2.0 port. Like to hardwire your Internet? That’s cool. Jack into OUYA’s high-speed ethernet port. WiFi works too. If you want to develop games, just plug your laptop into our micro-USB port -- anyone can release an OUYA game. And the hardware opens so you can customize it if that’s your bag.
While Ouya Kickstarter backers will begin to receive the console around the March 28th release date, subsequent pre-orders on Amazon will receive it around the June time frame (TBD)... Pre-order now to get into the queue (Amazon won't charge you until it ships).
