OUYA Android Console Tops $3 Million On Kickstarter

Chalk up another impressive landmark for the OUYA console. At current press time, it’s just cleared $3,343,000 in sales, making it the most successful gaming Kickstarter project in history.

How nuts is that? Just two days into its Kickstarter campaign, the OUYA has already earned more in funding than Double Fine Adventure did in almost a whole month. That’s downright crazy. Genius, but a little crazy.

Even CEO Julie Uhrman and her team don’t know what to do with all that extra money, do they’re turning to their backers to decide on the stretch goals:

Do you realize what you’ve done? You proved consoles aren’t dead. You shocked the world. And us!

We are blown away by your support. With your help, we just raised $2 million. And it’s only the first day.

Now we want to blow you away. The biggest thing for us right now: we are working on our stretch goals, what we can do if we raise more money. It might take us a few days to figure that out, and we want your help.

Tell us what you would like the stretch goals to be at ideas@ouya.tv.

If you have any ideas you want to share, the call is officially out. Team OUYA is even taking votes on what games you think the console should have at launch, and you can put down your two cents right over here.
