A few days ago, the open source console OUYA, reached another milestone in funding. According to OUYA's official blog,
new investors have pushed the console to the $15 million mark. While
OUYA was already being released to all consumers this June, the $15
million is going to be a significant help for the long haul, especially
since they plan to release a new version of the platform every year.
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers was cited as the leading investor;
That particular firm is the same one who originally backed Electronic Arts more than two decades ago.
Also stated in the blog post, OUYA has also been delayed three weeks due to "beyond expectations" demand from gamers and retailers, so the official release date for the console is now June 25th 2013. If you were a crowd funder, don't worry, you'll still get your OUYA at the same, earlier date.
Are any of Gamnesia's readers among those getting the console early?
