It was a pleasant surprise to get a Twitter notice that @Playouya liked my twit and added it to their Kickstarter site. I felt that no matter want happens, the concept beyond Ouya hit a nerve with gamers and developers. They’re the anti-establishment of video gaming right now and I’m sure people are having a ball sending a wake-up call to Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony with their $4m donation. Who would have thought that gamers would rally behind a new console that just plays games. Go figure : )
Here’s the mention from Ouya:
Until this week, a lot of people thought we were crazy. Some still do. THANK YOU to all those who are backing us: we are focused on delivering for you. And we’ve been reading what you’ve said:
Engadget… “Gamers are craving something different, and if the Ouya is a success, it could usher us into a new golden age of gaming…”
PC World… “Is the $99 OUYA the Video Game Console for the 99 Percent?”
@SoDoubleOGGood… What would Macho Man Randy Savage’s favorite gaming console be? (if he were still alive) #OUYA oooh yeah!
Gamasutra… “People have been clinging to the same game consoles for several years, and are wanting something different.”
Cyathem from Reddit… “I’ve wasted $100 on stupid things. This actually looks cool.”
