The OUYA game console release was previously delayed until June 25th, however that doesn't seem to have stopped those who have one of the already available developer units.

Last month the folks from Facebook had a pretty busy few weeks releasing Facebook Home, the HTC First phone, and of course their new Messenger application with tons of new features.
