Ouya is wanted by many gamers, that’s for sure. The console’s Kickstarter has become the fastest to top the $1 million mark, setting an all new record, and showing no signs of a slow down. As of press time, $3,170,752 had been raised.
Speaking during the MobileBeat 2012 conference today, console designer Yves Behar said:
“The gaming community [...] wants to be engaged, wants something new, wants it to be open. There’s lots of programmers, hackers, [and] game developers that don’t want to pay the huge fees that it takes to get a developer kit [for a major console].
There’s just not a lot of attention, of love and care and attention, on the [Andorid] platform. But that’s changing. We need to refine and detail things to be true to what their use and intention is, while building personality, while building brands. That’s the really exciting challenge when it comes to UI/UX for us.”
The console will see a launch March 2013.
