Ouya's Kickstarter campaign has come to a close, though not before raising just shy of $8.6 million in non-refundable funding from backers anxious to see this project through. The $99 Android console struck a chord with gamers and promises to deliver a low-cost entertainment experience to the living room comprised of freemium titles and a wealth of media center and streaming functionality, all from a tiny console about the size of a Rubik's Cube. Oh, and it's already available for pre-order.
That's right, you can reserve an Ouya console at Ouya.tv . There's a $10 shipping fee for U.S. customers that brings the price of the console plus a single controller to $109. You can also pre-order the console with two controllers for $139 or with four controllers for $199.
International customers are charged a $20 shipping fee, so the price for the console with one, two, and four controllers is $119, $149, and $209, respectively. Regardless of where you live, Ouya's expected delivery is pegged for April 2013, which is just eight months away.
