Update: Ouya gaming system breaks Kickstarter record

Jul 10th, 2012

There have been a plethora of Kickstarter products that have made plenty of money, however, today a new start-up has broken all previous records for one-day pledges, with over two million dollars at the time of writing. The aforementioned product is a brand new gaming console, it’s powered by Android 4.0, has a Tegra3 processor, and 1GB of RAM. From the current description and pictures, it appears to be the Android version of the Wii U… the best part, it’s $99. There’s no release date as of the moment, although with the amount of support, money, and attention the product is getting it’s bound to be sooner, rather than later. The only real complaint, is that the console is lacking the newly adopted 802.11ac standard for WiFi.

What do you think? Are you going to be one of the donors? Any idea why the product is getting such insane attention? Let us know in the comments section below!

P.S. I apologize for the recent delay in posts.

Update July 15th: Ouya has now made close to five million dollars, and there are 24 days to go!
