The Ouya. No, Really.


Late last year, we had a few bits about the Ouya, the super-cheap (USD 99) Android-powered gaming console. While the record-breaking Kickstarter project hasn’t changed the world with it’s almost USD 9 Million worth of crowdsourced funds, there have been videos of the unboxing online. For those of you who are still itching to get new on the device, here’s a VIDEO of the console playing a game called Roasty Rooster on Youtube.

The game itself isn’t really anything that will cause the presses to stop and the world to grind to a halt while people run to the stores in a desperate bid to get their hands on an Ouya, it is at least proof that the a device exists in the wild, and is happily running a game. The console has been available for devs since the 28th of December, 2012, and is expected to hit retail shelves April this year. It’s set to run Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip, 8GB on internal flash memory, 1GB of RAM and a 1.GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with an Nvidia ULP GeForce GPU, all on Android 4.1 Jellybean. We’re all excited for what the Ouya can do (particularly once people start hacking it), so stay posted to get the latest on this latest Android wondertoy.
