OUYA Kickstarter Rolls in Money, Dives, Surfaces, Blows Waterspout Made of Money

Posted by | July 11, 2012

The OUYA is a video game console designed to download and play free games from the internet. It was planned to sell for $99. That is, if it was more than words and some pretty rendered images. As of a few days ago, that idea got a lot closer to reality. The OUYA people laid down a Kickstarter for just under a million human dollars. Today, they’ve been plowed under by three-million dollars, and the Kickstarter still has a few weeks to go. It seems the internet has spoken. Now, all that remains is to see if the OUYA team can deliver. Kickstarter has the story.

    These OUYA folks better have some good lawyers. A hackable console that plays free games and dodges the retail market entirely? Yeah, I don’t think the big boys of the gaming industry are going to let that happen without a fight.

    Android — disappointingly not what it sounds like it is; but in the end it’s still behind some pretty awesome things.

    Every day, I wake up, see Android in the news, and crawl away scowling that it’s not talking about a real robot. Still, there’s a vague chance Android will eventually run on a real robot, so maybe that’s something.
