It’s something like a phenomenon. Dare I say it is a phenomenon. In just three days, the Ouya Kickstarter has not only obliterated its funding goal of $950,000, it’s also shattered all Kickstarter records and has broken the $4 million barrier. Amazing.

Ouya, a fully hackable console with the same Tegra 3 chip as the new Nexus 7 tablet and a twin-stick controller that also includes a touchpad, is being pitched as a platform for both indies and big companies, a console that is fully open to develop for and one on which every game will be free either initially as a demo, or as a free-to-play game.
