Ouya Console Shipping to Developers This December

Developer-tier backers will be receiving their units on schedule.

Posted By | On 04th, Dec. 2012


Goods news for those who took part in the $8.5 million USD Kickstarter for the Android-powered Ouya console: the development team has announced that developer-tier backers will be receiving their units this month.

In a recent update, the team stated, “Yes, we are shipping these to you on time, as promised. The dev consoles are an early version of the Ouya console and controller designed for developers to test their games on Ouya. Our Kickstarter developers are the first to get a crack at ’em! We’re psyched to have you on board, and we can’t wait to see what pours from your brain!”

Not only that but according to Ouya chief executive officer Julie Uhrman, usernames can also be claimed this month.

“By December 25th, we’ll email each of you a link to activate your account. For those of you who responded to our survey about preferred usernames, you’ll be able to confirm your choice. For the handful of popular names that had conflicts, we broke the tie(s) by honoring whomever backed Ouya first on Kickstarter. And, if any of you didn’t respond-or didn’t get your preferred username-you can choose a name when December 25 rolls around.”

Others who have contributed to the Kickstarter will see their units somewhere around March 2013, with an expected commercial release window in April 2013.
