And another player enters the video game console industry. Ouya is a cheap ($99) video game console running on Android's Ice Cream Sandwich OS that gives independent (and a few professional developers like Namco and Square) a dedicated console for games. Ouya just finished a Kickstarter campaign that raised $8.5 million dollars, so there's definitely interest in it. The console is due to be released in April 2013. I'm not entirely convinced, but this could be a fantastic way for independent games to finally hit the mainstream. I'm cautiously optimistic. Check them out here.
