OUYA Will Begin Shipping to Kickstarter Backers on March 28


Official word from the makers of OUYA this morning, confirm that Kickstarter backers will start receiving their Android-powered gaming consoles sometime shortly after they ship on March 28. Once devices start shipping, everyone will receive their tracking info in an email, so keep a look out in your inbox on and around that time. 

On top of all that hotness, they also offered up a small amount of news concerning games that will be available. While it won’t launch with hundreds of exclusive titles, there are a few shining stars that they did highlight.

Kim Swift — of Portal, Left 4 Dead, and Quantum Conundrum notoriety — and Airtight Games are developing a brand new, exclusive title for OUYA!

Kim writes: “We truly feel that this platform will give us the freedom to fully realize the funky, unique game we have in mind. Though the title will definitely appeal to core gamers in terms of skill and difficulty, it really has a completely unexpected, imaginative slant that’s totally at home on this console. Expect an official announcement soon!”

Full launch is still expected for June, where people can even head into stores and pick one of these consoles.

    Very excited to get mine!

    I’m still amazed that Best Buy is jumping on this as quickly as they are.

    Sure…. still waiting for my Pebble.

  • I’m dying to see how the Ouya pans out just because I’m loking for a new XBMC box.

  • Really looking forward to this console as I’m mainly a PC gamer and not a console kid, this console will change that, I’m a huge Android fanboy and love the little indie games released for the platform.

    That’s awesome! Cannot wait until the end of March to receive my HIGHLY ANTICIPATED OUYA!

    Just kinda suck that it’s still a month out though. Also…they said that early backers(from Kickstarter) would receive their OUYA’s sometime in March, and then people who pre-ordered their android-powered console(from the site) would get theirs in April. Unless of course pre-orderers won’t get their console until the end of April, as well.

    Well, regardless of that, just glad we’ll finally be getting it sooner rather than later! Can’t wait!
