In about  week or 2 I will be receiving my OUYA gaming console since I was one of the early backers of the platform., I'm excited to see what the platform is capable of and what will become of the open source gaming platform.

The console started shipping out on March 28th, not sure where I am on the list but pretty soon I will be getting tracking information to let me know where my platform is and when it ill arrive.

Here's few things OUYA had to say about when you get your console:

  • When you first boot it up, you’ll experience our first update 🙂 This will either be super fast (seconds) or allow you to get a drink (minutes) based on your connection speed. Eventually, we want to do these updates in the background…
  • You'll need a credit/debit card to download games. All games are still free to try. Your card will only be charged if you buy content you love. We do want valid payment information for everyone. This is to ensure that game developers can get paid when you love their game.
  • OUYA supports up to four controllers (you can always get more at http://ouya.tv). And, because we support Bluetooth, you can pair other devices as well. We are testing now and will start publishing a list of devices soon.

As of right now, they're over 100 games already available for OUYA, which are all free to try and developers are currently working on new titles.

We'll have videos and photos of the un-boxing when the system arrives.
