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.

Anyway, it seems a few of those participating in the fund were not playing entirely by the rules.
