  1. The team behind Ouya is finally reaching out to Kickstarter backers who were promised early access to the console and didn't get one until it hit retail shelves, or worse, are still waiting.

    Wow $13.37! How many games can you buy with that without having a useless amount of money left over?

    Its the fact that they gave 1337, stands for elite. Just something to giggle about.

    "We're sorry, here's some l33t cash to use in our lame store."

    I don't get it.

    Lol at the people who expected an extensive library for a crowdfunded, non AAA console.
    Hey if I had the free time and the resources I would gladly make games for ouya. Its just not profitable enough to be a full time platform for many remarkable developers.

    I've said this since the beginning: this product shouldn't even exist.

    Yeah probably making exclusive content for a modded android version won't be a blockbuster when they can do the same for every android and win big

    Yes I know. They were trying to be cute, but I doubt that you can buy an exact number of games with that. So if someone chooses not to FUND THE FUN with that remainder, it's ultimately useless. Like the OUYA.

    Just $13, that will get them all of two games and I think OUYA doesn't even have 2 worth buying.
