While many Kickstarter backers are still awaiting their early Ouya consoles, the Android system was still on track for an early June release at retail. On Wedensday, Ouya pushed the retail launch of the console to June 25th.
The Kickstarted Ouya console is nearing its street date and they already have the power of 10,000 individual developers worldwide. But if we've learned anything from the iOS App store, quantity doesn't always mean quality.
Early reviews for the Android powered Ouya console have been mixed, with Endgadget claiming last week that it's really, "not ready for retail." A recent blog post from Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman reassures supporters that there are still improvements to be made.
Fans of independent developers and Google's Android operating system have reason to rejoice, as the Ouya has started shipping. Initial supporters of the Ouya's successful $8.6 million Kickstarter campaign will get first crack at the system.
Since Ouya was first announced, plenty of great titles have been confirmed for the Android home console, such as the recently-named Broken Age and indie sensation Fez. And there are a bunch more in the pipeline, thanks to an announcement that will be sure to please Nintendo fanboys everywhere.
Reports are coming in that the Ouya, the crowdfunded Android gaming console, may not have all the features that its audience is expecting at launch. According to a report from The Verge, several staple features of an online ready system including online chat, friends lists, and achievements, will not be integrated into the Ouya until sometime after its launch.
Developers who upload their games to Ouya starting today will have their product available on the console when units begin shipping on March 28th. Developer relations head Kellee Santiago also noted on her blog post that developers may be featured on their very own documentary!
