OUYA Video Game Console - Ma$$ive Kickstarter Success

Postby Charles » Sat Jul 14, 2012 6:16 pm

A friend called me earlier to inform me about this. He learned about it on a talk radio program he was listening to this afternoon.

A new gaming console is on the way. It's called OUYA and it went to Kickstarter for a campaign four days ago to raise $950,000 for launch.

With 25 days left in their campaign, they've raised so far as of this writing, $4,747,742 through 37,073 backers !!! And that figure is going up with every passing minute!

This campaign will be well into the 10's of millions of dollars before it wraps up!

Crowdfunding had come of age my friends!

Here's the link to the OUYA Kickstarter Campaign.

We'll be following its progress over the next 25 days. Meanwhile check out some video that helps explain what the OUYA is all about with more video here.

With 24 days to go and an initial goal of $950,000 they've raised $4,831,161 for the OUYA through Kickstarter so far. That's $83,419 more than yesterday. The torrent of financial support has slowed down from when the campaign went online only 5 days ago, but with 24 days left until it wraps up there's still no telling how far it can go.

OUYA's Kickstarter campaign here.

According to Kickstarter, in reaching its goal, Ouya holds the record for best first day performance of any project hosted to date. Within the first 24 hours the project attracted one backer every 5.59 seconds. Ouya became the eighth project in Kickstarter history to raise more than a million dollars, and then became the most quickly funded project on Kickstarter to reach one million dollars.
