Ouya unveils limited edition white console with double the storage in time for the holidays
The holidays have arrived early for gamers as the PlayStation 4 is already on the market and the Xbox One is just around the corner but if it's Android gaming you’re into, fret not. Ouya has just unveiled a limited edition console that features a white case and matching controller for about what it would cost to buy two PS4 or Xbox One games.
Priced at $129 ($30 more than the original), the white Ouya is by and large identical to the previous offering although storage capacity has been bumped up to 16GB from 8GB, necessitating the price increase.
Ouya is now accepting pre-orders for the new system and if you order by December 8, the console should arrive in time to make it under the Christmas tree. Do note, however, that the new white model is only available in North America as of writing.
No word on just how “limited” the offering is meaning if you want one, I wouldn’t wait around too long or they might all be gone for good. Of course, if it’s the new chassis you’re after, you could always simply 3D print your own case at home, but I digress.
In related news, the company is also planning to bring USB storage support and a wealth of other features via software update later this month. That essentially means current console owners can expand past the paltry 8GB of storage without incurring any additional costs.
Or if you’d still prefer to order the original console at $99 and use your own storage, that’s an option too. Plus, Ouya is offering a free $5 game credit with the purchase of the original system for a limited time. Decisions, decisions.
