The lights are on
Ouya is coming soon, and the company behind the Android-based console is cutting off at least some speculation off at the pass. If you're not a Kickstarter backer, just where the heck are you supposed to get one of these things. As it turns out, the answer is simple: a store.
Kickstarter backers will see their consoles starting in March, and the systems will be hitting store shelves in June. Ouya posted a list of retail partners on its Web site, and they're all familiar faces. They include Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop (Game Informer's parent company), and Target. Seeing these things on store shelves will add a degree of credibility to the system, which is critically important for an upstart like Ouya. The console and one controller will cost $100, with additional controllers going for $50.
Developers have already been tinkering around with the hardware, and we'll have to see if anyone has come up with a system-selling game before the launch.

Might pick one up just for fun, only a hundred bucks anyway.
Soon it'll be the Ouya's time to debut. This'll be an interesting year indeed. I just hope that it holds up to the next Playstation, Wii U, and the next Xbox.
I did not think this would make it to stores. Well I still dont have high hopes for it to sell that much. Lets see how long they stay on those shelves when people will not be making any money from games.
good luck guys
Probably gonna hit up Best Buy in June for one then.
Really, really nice to see this NOT become another Infinium Phantom.
I already own a Kindle Fire, so I can play Android games on that, so I won't be getting one. But I hope Ouya is successful. It's always good to see a new console.
"Oh s***. There goes the planet."
I might just pick it up as its only $100. I just dont know what games to play.
Sweet, I'll have to grab that.
honestly 100 bucks isn't bad at all .. i might not have the money tho by then (will see) . i think i rather wait for the reviews too but heres to hoping its good .. maybe it'll help lower console prices in the future. ( i know but i can hope)
