Just as was announced earlier, Ouya systems are being sent out to everyone who pledged to the Kickstarter's developer tier. Some 1,2000 systems have just been shipped via air mail and will begin arriving on excited developer doorsteps soon. Some doubted they would make it to this moment, but soon enough people will be able to experiment with the systems.
These first run Ouyas are special for a few reasons. For one, they have a limited edition black color but they will also be different from the final versions shipping to everyone else. The current Ouya build will be one that still needs to undergo changes to the controller, as well as the system itself to fix bugs.
Julie Uhrman said this in her latest post:
"They“re a work in progress, so we want your feedback. (Yes, we know the D-pad and triggers on the controller still need work — the final version will be different.) There will also be plenty of bugsâ€¦help us find them so we can fix ”em!"
The D-pad design is one which has been an issue since it was first shown, but it seems there is still more work to go with it. Those who pledged to lower tiers are set to get their consoles in March, as predicted.
