Ouya Console Adds Limited Edition Color Scheme, Finalizes Controller Design

Posted on August 1, 2012 AT 12:18pm

Open-source Android-based gaming console Ouya has a few new updates, adding a new color scheme and finally answering the question of what its controller will look like in the finished model. If you want to get your hands on a special-edition black Ouya, though, you’ll have to boost that pledged dollar amount a little higher.

As updated on the Ouya’s official Kickstarter page by CEO and founder Julie Uhrman, the brown/black Ouya will only be available to project backers until the end of their fundraising campaign. Push your pledge to $150, and the limited edition is yours.

Team Ouya also noted (as seen in the picture) above, that their controller is finally finished.

Of course, the result seems obvious, but the Ouya face buttons will have an “O-U-Y-A” pattern, with a different color arrangement than what you might find on an standard Xbox 360 controller—for copyright reasons, we’re sure.

If you still want to pick up an Ouya system of your own, be warned—time is running out. Right now, there’s only one week left in the Kickstarter campaign, but still plenty of $99, $150, and $225 etched controller specials left to buy.

It’s fair to say that the Ouya has been a smash success, topping $6 million in pledged cash thanks to an insane word-of-mouth push from the Kickstarter crowd. It heads out to market in March 2013, too, so it’ll be here before you know it.
