OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console
I haven’t seen much of anything on here about the Ouya, which surprises me. If you haven’t heard about Ouya, you can learn more about it here (its pronounced booyah with out the b)
Basically its a new game console coming in early 2013 priced at $99. The difference between this and a Playstation or an Xbox is that this runs on Android, and it’s built to be hacked. It’s hard to completely explain so just visit the link above of you want to know what it is.
They put their project on kickstarter, if you never heard of kickstarter, its a website where people cans put their projects and people can pledge money to assist them. So they put their project on kickstarter and within 8 hours, they reached their goal of $950,000. Normally, a project doesn’t Even reach it’s goal, so that was a big thing all over the Internet. Within the first day, they got $2 million in pledges. At the current moment, they’re at about $4.6 million.
For more about kickstarter, you can go to http://www.kickstarter.com/
I’m posting this just to see if anyone heard about this or backed this up and pledged money.
You can also google Ouya if want to learn more about it.
So, did you hear about it?
