Ouya’s Kickstarter Closes at $8.6 Million

It’s been an amazing voyage for the Android-powered Ouya console’s Kickstarter campaign. Originally asking for just under $1 million in backing to successfully launch, the project has now closed over $8 million in pledges on the crowd-funding website.

On top of the success of its Kickstarter, the Ouya has also attracted a handful of powerhouse developers and services to bring to the console upon its eventual release. Among those are Square Enix, Robotoki, and On Live.

Whether or not the console is the success it’s being set up to be remains to be seen. But regardless of its mysticism, it has undoubtedly sent a message to the industry with its fantastic earnings on Kickstarter.
