Ouya Android Console Coming to Best Buy and GameStop in June

Missed your chance to back the Ouya on Kickstarter? Fret not — in a recent interview the The Wall Street Journal, CEO Julie Uhrman confirmed that the much-anticipated Android games console will arrive at retailers nationwide this June. The company has struck deals with Target, Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, and others to carry the system, which will be priced at $99.99. While the system comes bundled with a controller, the company will also be offering additional controllers separately for $50.

The Android-based system remains one of the most successful Kickstarter projects to date, having raised over $8.5 million. Those that backed the system originally will receive their systems first in March, followed by early pre-order customers in April and the public debut in June.

Over 200 Ouya-compatible titles are currently in the works, including Minecraft, ShadowGun, and others. Developers shared their experiences with the development kit hardware last week, calling the system underpowered but promising.
