Early backers of the OUYA game console got a nice surprise last week when Julie Uhrman, the project’s founder, announced consoles had shipped a few days ago. If you are one of those early backers, your unit should be arriving any day now. When the new console arrives, new owners will find:
- 104 titles will be immediately available with many more on the way
- OUYA will require an update on first launch but it will be ultra quick
- You’ll need a credit/debit card to download games… even free ones
- OUYA supports up to 4 controllers and although you can buy more, it’ll work with Xbox/PS3 controllers among others
The folks at OUYA indicate they will be launching at retail locations starting June 4th. In an interesting little twist,they also announced plans are available for anyone who wants to 3D print an OUYA for themselves.
