If you were excited about the upcoming Ouya console and became a Kickstarter backer, then we have great news for you.
Starting on March 28th, 2013, Ouya will begin shipping units to Kickstarter backers. The full public launch is still on track for June of this year, with production well underway.
There are already 1,200 Ouya’s floating around out there as dev units were shipped out, complete with a transparent controller and case and access to the Ouya Developer Portal.
Ouya revealed the ship date for Kickstarter backers is this blog entry:
OUYAs will begin shipping to Kickstarter backers on March 28. That’s right. Parts are in the factory and assembly lines are buzzing. We’ll gradually ramp up production as we make sure things are working. (Our full launch is still set for June, which is when OUYA will be available in stores!)
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of you will receive your OUYA, and you’ll get to start playing right away. You will also get to watch OUYA evolve over the coming weeks and months. We’ll continue to add new features, refine our user experience, and bring on more games. As always, we appreciate your feedback (and apply it), so keep it coming.
Keep a lookout in your inbox for an email from us. It will have your tracking number and estimated delivery date. Might take a few weeks to get to everyone. We have a lot of OUYAs to ship!
