Excited gamers have been counting down the days until the OUYA hit retail stores nationwide, today marks the official retail-launch of the $99 game console, and it is already selling out.
The OUYA promises over 170 new games and the list is still growing everyday. The console has 17,000 registered game developers according to the company’s reports and the console is available at retail locations across the U.S., Canada, and U.K., including Amazon, Best Buy, GAME, GameStop, and Target, for only $99.99. With a current library of more than 170+ free-to-try games and media apps in 1080p HD, OUYA is the most affordable, accessible, and innovative new video game console on the market today.
In a press-release sent out this morning the company talks about the games and how the OUYA offers something unique for everyone. “It’s incredible to think that a little under a year ago OUYA was just an idea — we wanted to do something completely new in console gaming: build a $99 game console, with no discs to buy, open to all developers, and affordable to all gamers,” said Julie Uhrman, CEO and co-founder, OUYA. “Today, OUYA is real. Console gaming has never needed something new more than it does now.”
The little console was already sold-out on Amazon, though more are expected to come in later. As of this article, there were units available at other online locations. You can check out both Amazon or Best Buy below.
