There isn’t much we haven’t already learned about the OUYA game console, however as of today we are seeing something different — the FCC filing. As the game console has already made its way into the hands of some users, this filing contains already known bits of information. The filing does however contain plenty of images, not to mention, the full user manual for those who feel like they may want to do a bit of browsing.
Some of the pics can be seen in this post, but the FCC filing page has plenty more available. The user manual is a pretty standard affair and offers the basics including the setup process and the specs. Just to recap those, the OUYA console is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The console can handle extra storage by way of the USB port and has HDMI, Bluetooth, Ethernet and Wi-Fi in terms of connectivity.
Perhaps more to the point for the success of the OUYA though, we recently learned how 10,000 developers have committed to the console. Unfortunately this doesn’t mean there are 10,000 games available at the moment, but it does give some hope that we will be seeing game announcements arrive in the coming weeks and months.
If nothing else, we hope to see plenty of game announcements before the retail availability begins in June. Keeping on the topic of games and we look back to late March when the console began shipping. At that time it was said the OUYA had more than 100 available games. Otherwise, last we heard was that the console shipments were going out as expected and all Kickstarter backers were expected to have console in hand before the end of May.[via Engadget]
