OUYA has to be responsible for one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of all time. Setting an original target goal of $950,000, the free-to-play video game system ended up attracting more than 60,000 backers and $8.5 million. Overachievers! The concept of OUYA is simple. Console gaming with affordable games using the Android platform, meaning that if it’s available on Android, you can play it through your OUYA. Incidentally, that makes this console so much more than a video game system. It’s a music player and a full-fledged entertainment portal.
Each game – could be free-to-play with in-game purchases, subscription-based, or a one-time fee – has a try-before-you-buy option where the gamer can access a “lite” version for free to see if the whole thing is worth laying down money for. OUYA’s makers have even made it easy to root the system (and actually encourage you to do so), making it possible to produce your own games should the mood suit you.
