The OUYA Android-based gaming console that took Kickstarter and the tech world by storm last year will be available in June. The $99 unit will be offered through a variety of retail partners, including Amazon, Gamestop, Target, and Best Buy. In other words, all the places you readers like to frequent.
A Wall Street Journal interview with OUYA CEO Julie Uhrman tells us that there’s quite a bit going on as the device preps for its commercial debut. We definitely recommend checking the article out as it spells out some of the finer details and expectations.
Speaking of expectations, those of you who pre-ordered from OUYA’s website will see your console shipping in April. Did you support the Kickstarter project? Even better – yours go out in March.
Retail pricing will be $99.99 for the console with one controller, the same as elsewhere. If you need a second controller then expect to spend $49.99, a slight premium over the web purchase option.
