Update #18

OUYA is coming to stores

Our loyal-est loyalists...

We have some good news today. Because of the support for OUYA you showed, some of our favorite stores are going to carry OUYA when it officially launches to the public in June.

Just so you know, you're still getting yours as promised, before they're ever in stores. Wanted to be sure you heard that from us.

For you developers, this means even more OUYAs will soon be in the hands of gamers everywhere, so get makin' on those games...

Keeping calm,

      @jonathan this is the ouya if it doenst have a traditional remote now you can either fix that yourself or wait a couple weeks for someone else to benifits of a box thats open to modding

      Stu. On the right of the page is the rewards. On the reward you selected it should say "Survey Sent" and "your response". Click on that link and you should be able to update your address.

      URGENT need to update my address! Where do I do this?

      For retail please advertise it as an Android console and "play games on your TV". That may help with people who don't know what this is. The ma's and pa's of the world. Also, somehow to convey that games are cheap not 60 bucks a pop. I'm sure you guys have thought about it but the big problem with the Wii-U in my opinion is that normal folk dont know what it is or just don't want another console. Ipods and tablets are big with kids now. Minecraft, apps etc. Need to hook em' in and make them look at it! :)

      I really hope there will be a traditional remote control for this. When watching movies with XBMC I really don't want to use a controller.

    6. Missing_small

      Creator Jeff Craig on February 5, 2013

      @Matthew Baldo: For wireless controllers with a touch-interface, the price is pretty well inline with controllers. Though $50 controllers for a $100 console feels high, if you don't look at the rest of the market.

    7. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Matthew Baldo on February 5, 2013

      I hope you guys can figure out someway to cut down the price a bit on the controllers.

      Also do you have a plan for selling credit through the stores? They won't keep you there if they don't continue to make money. So having a display with cards in 10-20-50 values would be well worth it.

      Being in stores is awesome, can't wait for the public to get their hands on it

      Congrats team Ouya. That's amazing news. Excellent work. I get more excited to start messing around with Ouya each day.

    10. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Devin Gallagher on February 5, 2013

      So... do backers get a price break If we decide to order a second controller?

    11. Missing_small

      Creator ddbelyea on February 5, 2013

      This is an especially big deal to parents. This means that a parent will be looking directly at an OUYA when they are shopping for a console for their kids. That $99 price tag is going to be hard thing for even the big name companies to compete with. Especially if right on the box you can advertise things like minecraft, FFIII, and the ability to use tablets/smartphones. Even if the kids don't care about those things, parents know that minecraft and Final fantasy are popular things and will be looking for reasons not to buy expensive consoles.

    12. Missing_small

      Creator bobbybobbob on February 5, 2013

      How can people be complaining that they got a controller for $20 less than retail? I would be a bit upset if I paid the same as retail and got no bonus other than getting the console a tiny bit earlier.

      Congrats to the OUYA team for hitting this milestone.

    13. Puzzud.small

      Creator Andrew Dieffenbach on February 5, 2013

      Huge! Getting OUYA in retail stores was what I told the OUYA team to do with the extra money when they asked--not like they needed me to tell them. Great job; I'm curious if this is online only though.

      Creator Darryell Randle on February 5, 2013

      Cool! When will get updated on when our consoles will arrive next month and which games will be available to download?

      The Amazon ad blew me away. I can't wait to get mine so I can add a glowing review.

      Wish I would have gotten 4 controllers with my kickstarter order...

    17. Missing_small

      Creator xmcnuggetx on February 5, 2013

      A bit disappointing with the price hike of the controller. The pricing now seems strange that the controller is worth 50$ and the console itself is worth 50$.

    18. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator UnseenHero on February 5, 2013

      I know this might sound ignorant but sorry. It is great you are selling this to stores but are you selling the white or the black ones? I thought black was kickstarter exclusive only ( or brown brushed metal). The picture on where you are selling them it is in black. So I was just wondering.

      Is this mean you send out an OUYA for backers soon? :)

      Thank you James...I was just wondering if it's still in March or not. I thought I might have missed something about a production delay...thanks for responding! :)

      Creator James on February 5, 2013

      @Len "you're still getting yours as promised, before they're ever in stores". It's right in the update.

    23. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Len Mulaski on February 5, 2013 I'm concerned. I was hoping to get mine in the mail in March, but since it's not going to be released until June does that mean we have to wait until May for us backers?

    24. Plague82.small

      Creator d0ct0rscarecr0w on February 5, 2013

      I'm kind of wishing I got 3 extra controllers instead of 1 since they where 20 dollars cheaper on here.

    25. Idale2.small

      Creator Jhonrock on February 5, 2013

      on time... now it's better to buy another console than only one extra controller.

    26. Idale2.small

      Creator Jhonrock on February 5, 2013

      Now i'm glad more than ever to have backed/pre-ordered Ouya with one extra controller during kickstarter campaign. 50 bucks it will cost now? Jesus!!!

    27. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Kevin Buisson on February 5, 2013

      Je suis un peu déçu du faite qu'on devait débourser 40$ de plus pour avoir la Ouya collector en noir et l'a voir dorénavant sur votre boutique pour le public de la même couleur pour le prix de 99$ c'est à dire le prix que j'ai payé pour avoir la version "normale"

      J'ai peut-être mal compris,
      j'attend une explication de votre part.

      Any chance it'll retail outside North America?

    29. Goldeneyesmaller.small

      Creator Danj3ris on February 5, 2013

      Can't wait to see what Gamestop offers as a pre-order bonus, considering over 60,000 people are getting their Ouya's in March, and even more than that are getting them in April before it is even released to the public.

      Considering it's Gamestop, I'm going to say that they provide an exclusive screwdriver to open your Ouya. Or a bunch of free demos. :p

    39. Tank_self.small

      Creator James Chung on February 5, 2013

      Searching "Ouya" on Amazon doesn't bring up the console on top. It's like 10th item. I hope it gets fixed.

      Congrats! Can't wait to make games for it.
