The OUYA Unboxed After Shipping March 28th


If you backed the OUYA during it’s Kickstarter campaign, it’s a good chance you’ll be seeing your tiny console in the next week. Endgadget received theirs and did everyone the courtesy of unboxing the crowd funded console on camera, so we could get a look at it.

The most impressive aspect of the OUYA is it’s footprint. The OUYA console itself has an ingenious design, and easy access for modding. The controller looks somewhat fragile, and poorly designed with both sides of the controller face needing to be removed to insert AA batteries. The jury is still out on the level of support the $99 open source console will receive, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it’s progress.
