OUYA, the Android-powered console that raised $8.5 million from Kickstarter, will hit stores in June. It'll appear at Amazon, Gamestop and "several other retailers," including Target and Best Buy, reports Digits.
Pre-orders for consoles ($99.99) and controllers ($49.99) kick off on its site next Tuesday.
If you're wondering what the fuss is about, just know that the OUYA sounds awesome—it's open source, so anyone can build games on it. Analysts aren't convinced the product will take off given Nintendo's poor showing over the holidays (the Wii U was not in demand). But still, open source = more games to play.
Said CEO Julie Uhrman to Digits: "We have about half a dozen to a dozen community sites with lists of as long as 200 titles coming to OUYA. We feel we’ll have a large suite of titles and titles from developers that are exclusive to OUYA."
