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.
