Kickstarter success story in terms of funding and while we wait for those units to begin shipping, we have some good news for those who choose not to back. Of course, going back to the successful funding, we suppose this latter group may be the minority. Regardless though, the good news as of today is that pre-orders have come available.
OUYA game console will be following the model we often see with mobile phones. That is to say, it looks like they have plans to release a new console each year. The details are coming out of the DICE 2013 conference where CEO Julie Uhrman said that their strategy will be "very much similar to the mobile strategy."
OUYA game console is going to soon be available in retail stores. The consoles are expected to land with several retailers including some brick-and-mortar and some on the web. The list of stores looks to include Gamestop, Best Buy and Target as well as Amazon. The OUYA should be available with these retailers beginning in June, and pre-orders are already available with several of them.
console launched on Kickstarter back in early-January and since then it seems to have attracted quite a bit of attention. In fact, the game console attracted so much attention that the initial funding goals we quickly meet and additional perks were added as new funding levels were reached. All things considered, except for one small issue that resulted in the GameStick Kickstarter going down for a few hours, they seem to have done rather well.
OUYA game console, you may want to make that purchase sooner rather than later. Or more specifically, make that purchase before Monday, February 4, 2013. The details are coming by way of a recent status update from OUYA and note that if you don't place your order before then -- you will not have your console in April.
Kickstarter almost out of time, the company has revealed the final design for the controller along with a new docking station. That said, those still on the fence about backing the GameStick, you have a little less than 70 hours. Of course, there is clearly no need to worry about the project being funded at this point. We have already seen the project climb to more than $500k when they were originally looking for $100k.
Kickstarter launched with quite a bit of success. The project climbed well over the $100,000 goal very quickly and is currently at $466,855 with eight days remaining to pledge. One interesting part here, the project has been tweaked a little bit here and there. The basics have remained the same, however we are seeing extra little perks being added.
CES this year was probably massive HDTVs with 4k resolutions and such, we still saw tons of Android goodness this year. The growing trend is each manufacturer (like Samsung) want their own stage at a separate event to announce their latest and greatest, so most the big hitters were missing this year from the mobile scene. However we still have plenty to show you so lets take a look.
