OUYA retail push beginning this month with Target

The OUYA game console launched in the US market back in June. Since then the console has been available with a few retailers including GameStop, Target and Best Buy. The key with the retail availability though, none of those retailers had the console available in every location. Flash forward till the present day and it looks like Target is getting ready to make that move.

OUYA external storage update entering beta status next week

The OUYA team mentioned that external storage support was an item that was in the works. This news came back in September and while it was encouraging, there was little detail provided other than it being an item that was being worked on. As for a timeline it was simply listed as "coming." Well, it looks like that time has arrived, for those who are willing to play in the beta space.

OUYA preps further European expansion

OUYA has recently announced plans to bring the game console to additional markets across Europe. The goal is for the console to begin arriving later this month.

OUYA changes the rules of “Free the Games” program

Responding to the flak that it is receiving over its developer program, OUYA is announcing some changes to the policies and requirements to be eligible for the fund-matching benefits.

OUYA getting backlash with the “Free the Games” fund

OUYA first announced the "Free the Games" fund back in mid-July. The program was created to entice developers to bring games to the OUYA platform and later launched in August. The idea seemed simple enough, OUYA would match funds (up to $1 million) for game developers that launched and successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign with at least $50,000 in funding. Anyway, it seems a few of those participating in the fund were not playing entirely by the rules.

GameStick game console to finally ship in September

Majority of Android gamers are probably familiar with the OUYA gaming console which is probably one of the most successful technology-related Kickstarter so far. Some, however, might also be aware of another rather similar Kickstarter console named GameStick. After months of delays, the device might finally land in the hands of backers and buyers by the middle of September.

XBMC app arrives in the OUYA store

We have seen XBMC up and running on the OUYA game console before. A demo surfaced way back in March that showed the software running and how it was controlled using the OUYA remote. That build was being shown on a developer unit OUYA and came by way of Nathan Betzen, who is part of the XBMC team. Well, flash forward till today and it looks like installing XBMC on your OUYA has gotten just a bit easier.
