OUYA – An Open Source Game Platform That’s Coming To Market

A bright young man I know, Cortez, is developing a game for OUYA. This could be a difference-maker against the mega-marketed game platforms, such as XBox, PS and Nintendo.  OUYA is a low-cost, Android-based and fully hackable gaming console.

How do you gauge the upside interest? OUYA had the biggest launch date in the history of Kickstarter. 63,416 backers pledged $8,596,474 – against a goal of $950,000! Eight-and-a-half million dollars — that’s almost nine times the revenue for which they were looking!
