Do you remember the Ouya? It's that "hacker friendly" game console which had an amazingly successful Kickstarter campaign. Not only did it reach its funding goal within the first day, it managed to make over 900% of its goal. During the fundraising period, it saw many updates and forged agreements with various game companies. After finishing, things became pretty quiet.
Today, Ouya founder Julie Uhrman made a post to the official Ouya blog letting everyone know the state of things. For those developers who paid a higher price to secure an early development kit - you'll be getting a system on time. Initially they were promised to come around December and now we've got confirmation that they will make that time frame. The systems will ship off on December 28th and reach eager developer's doorsteps soon afterward.
Only those who paid for the higher, developer tier of Ouya will get their systems early. However, if you want one too then check out a contest which was also unveiled today. From December 10th to 20th, they will be giving away a system a day. Check the contest link to find out how to get a chance at scoring a free Ouya.
Do you think the Ouya will be a big hit? Has it lost its hype?
