      I'm impressed that you are actually shipping "on" your estimated date! all the other projects i have backed are full months late! like ship in November... its March, still nada... or ship September, barely make Christmas... or even ship in September... still waiting on ship date...

      I am beyond excited to get my hands on the limited edition brown console. I hope this thing takes off and we are able to build a thriving community.

      So are the consoles sent out now to backers worldwide ?

    5. Ber on March 4, 2013

      David Honsinger: You're right, they should let backers know the updated shipping date. Hmm what would be the best way ... perhaps an update on their KS page? oh wait ... look what these comments are on!

      You know what's egregious? People who use it in a sentence within the 21st century.

      I hope you don't plan on using DHL for shipping to Argentina.
      It just won't work.

      We've just uploaded a new episode of OUYA Radar over at http://www.OUYAGamingSource.com and it's all about the CREATE game jam entries! If you want to see some OUYA games in action, head over and check it out:

      The next episode will be out in a week, covering the rest of our CREATE favorites. We love feedback, so tell us what you liked, and what still needs work. Enjoy!

      Maybe it was mentioned before or I totally forgot it: what was the shipping method? How long could I expect to wait until my Ouya arrives? I live in Germany, so I guess a few days after Easter :D

      Lucas Borelli on March 6, 2013

      Did anyone else not receive an e-mail informing a tracking number or even if the Ouya was shipped?
      I need information! D:

    11. Ber on March 6, 2013

      Lucas: you need to read first, then write :/ Then you would know that the Ouya's start shipping on 28th March, so none have shipped yet. I know I should be more polite but *come on*, it says the shipping date in the very first line of this update, did you read any of it?

    12. Martin Kaardal on March 6, 2013

      Sorry i misread, i see now March 28...

    13. David Honsinger on March 6, 2013

      Yep, it's right here on their page. But according to everything BEFORE this, which means everything up to 28 February, I expected to GET my OUYA in March. Meaning shipping should be no later than the 15th. Heck, I was hoping (not particularly reasonably) for shipping to have started by 28 Feb, so the first backers could have theirs in EARLY March. But in any case, the ouya.tv website (when I posted my comment, at least) said "Backers will receive their OUYA in March." No way they're going to get it to me before April, because they aren't likely to overnight it to me, are they? As you see, even Lucas, whom you said, *come on* to just below, was expecting it to have SHIPPED by now so it could be here... in March. As promised.

    14. John McCormick on March 6, 2013

      Reading comprehension seems to be a big problem here on Kickstarter. The post is unambiguous and tells you what you need to know in precise terms yet comments appear to be written by people who don't realize the information is on the very same page they are posting on (or complaining on).

      Looking forward to receiving the product. This is one of the more timely kickstarter campaigns I have ever backed.

    15. Steffen on March 7, 2013

      I don't get it how some people can wait half a year (!) for their backed projects and then bitch about two to three weeks delivery.

      Ian Hawley on March 9, 2013

      I think they've done really well to hit March and, I guess people might have been expecting them a bit earlier, I think the timeline was always tight - so long as I have mine by say April 20th I'll be happy tbh, after then I'll start wondering where it is, but not until. And hey, I have a game to bring to it!

      I'm keen to see it launch well when it 'really' lauches and I'd like to hear that it's outsold the Wii U at launch, which would bode well and be a real achievement for an unknown.

      Now, talking about games... Has any good shmup been anounced for the ouya? Aren't there android versions of classical bullet hell games like Espgaluda II and DoDonPachi Resurrection from CAVE or indie developers like the creators of Danmaku unlimited 1 + 2?
      Shouldn't the OUYA be a shmuppers dream come true, as really good shmups have become such a niche themselves...

      Drachenherz, I just spent a good amount of time sampling a game called Phoenix Revival by Synaca Studios while I was at the SXSW Gaming Expo, and being a schmup nut, I walked away very impressed. Think Geometry Wars without vector graphics, and ships with rpg class variants. The demo they had up and running had co-op tank and healer ships, with slowly regenerating "mana" to govern how often you could use your specials. I spent more time playing the demo at their booth than I did wandering the rest of the expo. They're trying to have it ready in time for the first batch of consoles, so hopefully here in a few weeks.

    19. Drachenherz on March 11, 2013

      @Smackdownfletch: I'll surely look into Phoenix Revival, as it surely will be "free to play". :-)

    20. Florian Rathcke on March 15, 2013

      28th of march! I am excited! One question concerning intl. customers crossed my mind: Will you do a proper customs declaration with an attached invoice and stuff, so people do not have to wait a month or more for customs to write them a letter, that they can pick up their Ouya at the customs office? And anyhow, we have not really bought the Ouya, we just supported the project with a donation. And as a 'Thank You' we are getting an Ouya... do we have to pay customs in that case?
      Anyhow, it would be great if shipments would be ready to roll through customs without the waiting time, if that is possible.

      Don't forget about one of the first video game comsole, the NES aka the Famicom (Family Computer) form NINTENDO. It was released in japan in 1983 as a computer/video game console.
      The Dreamcast was a good video game console that just didn't have enough support from 3rd party publishers and couldn't survive the hype behind the Sony PlayStation 2 launch. Although it did have many features that all the current consoles have now like internet multiplayer games and a web browser from the launch of the system.

    24. Mike Guay on March 18, 2013

      I've sent messages through Kickstarter asking how to change my shipping address as I have moved and the old address is no longer valid. Any help?

    25. Mike Guay on March 18, 2013

      Cancel that, found the email. Hopefully they change it in time.

    26. SVDB on March 19, 2013

      Aw, I was hoping to get it for my son's 11th birthday on April 3rd, but if it starts to ship only on the 28th I doubt it'll make it on time. Looks like I'll need to deploy plan B.

    27. Ninjabear on March 22, 2013

      Quick comment: Will there be games at all price ranges? I worried that if the games tend to only cost $1-2 then the console will be limited to mini games or low budget titles. What I'd like to see would be some games with $20-$30 price tags but with the first 1-2 levels free. That way we could have developers investing themselves full time in the titles.

      Obviously we don't want a big console situation where we only get FPS games but I would like to see some cinematic PSX-style games like the Resident Evils, Tom Raider (but something unique that we haven't seen before).

      As well I am trying to find a way to change my mailing address. (sorry for the spam) Anyone know how?

    30. Jakub Bandola on March 26, 2013

      If I am from the Czech Repubublic (Central Europe) when I recive my console? I recive some shiping iformation as tracking number, or not?

      Thanks for answer.

    31. Ninjabear on March 26, 2013


      Normally you would login to the developer website but now it gives you this message:

      "Shipping address editing is DISABLED
      As we're getting close to shipping your OUYA, please email support@ouya.tv to update your shipping address."

      I hope this clears up any address issues people have.

    32. Jakub Bandola on March 26, 2013

      I dont want to change my addres but I want only information about shipping.
      - approximate date of delivery
      - tracking code of package

      sorry if I explained something wrong in English.
      English is not my native language

    33. Cromax on March 26, 2013

      Do you have a CE mark for the Ouya? Because without a CE mark the Ouya can't be shipped in the EU. Also there need to be a recipe outside of the package otherwise the custom duty offices will hold all the Ouya packages to Germany. I don't want the same desaster the Pebble makers made with there delivery ;)

    34. Pogopuschel on March 27, 2013

      I second Cromax here. Recipe outside of the package for germany. Or marking it as a gift so that we avoid customs duty :-)

    35. Hendrik Osula on March 27, 2013

      Also worried about importing Ouya to EU. CE or even better - gift would be really appreciated!

    36. Kory Calvert on March 27, 2013

      Ouya shipping tomorrow can't wait to get it next week

    37. Cromax on March 27, 2013

      Marking as a gift isn't enough. Every electronic device must have a CE mark in germany. Also there have to be the recipe outside of the package. If there is no CE mark, the Ouya will be sent back or destroyed (just happnd to some Pebbles). If there is no recipe outside of the package, the recipient will have to pay extra taxes and storage costs or the ouya will be sent back. I have some (not really good) experience with the german custom duty ...

    38. Emiel Roumen on March 28, 2013

      Can't wait for my Ouya to arrive!

      today is shipping day... why no updates? where's the hoopla and fanfare? is shipping delayed?

    40. ML Allen on March 28, 2013

      @shawn haye: I'm right there with you. Today is for all intents and purpose launch day so I would have thought there'd be at least a blog update. I'm wondering what is happening in the house of Ouya. Many have waited for this day so far a update would be awesome!

    41. Greg Roth on March 28, 2013

      Hey OUYA! You guys still out there? Today's your big day and all your backers have heard is the chirping of crickets....... kinda quiet in the World Of OUYA.....

      Hey guys.... still no news from my ouya getting ready to ship and the day's almost over.. oh well. I hope nothing bad has happened :D

    47. Jeffrey Vollmer on March 28, 2013

      I too am wondering why there have been no updates for Team OUYA. I'm hoping everything is still going on as planned. It would be nice to hear an update however.

      Just a note; there IS an update on their main site: http://www.ouya.tv/shippin/ They have started shipping.

    50. Ninjabear on March 31, 2013

      Jakub, you asked your question before the shipping date so there's no chance you could have got a tracking number before then. It's best to just read these updates properly because they have all the information you need about the delivery.
