And it did so in less than 24 hours. It’s now day two of their money-shower campaign, and they’re seconds away from hitting they’ve already smashed the $2 million mark as well. What did they originally ask for in order to fund a $99 console? A hell of a lot less than they have now: $950, 000.
This means that the OUYA console is pretty much a go; the world will be getting an Android based $99 gaming console designed to plug right into your TV. Naturally, the team developing the unit are riding a wave of excitement and motivation; check out the introductory video over on their Kickstarter page.
They’re aiming to ship the first batch of consoles in March 2013 and they’re currently sitting with an advanced prototype that’s working the way they want it to. As originally predicted, the console will run off a Tegra3 quad-core processor.
