Ouya Launch Date Pushed Back to Late June

The Ouya console isn’t going to make its planned released date of June 4 due to greater than expected demand, but don’t worry it’s only a couple of weeks extra wait.

The console will now ship to the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on June 25 to allow the company time to create more units to meet retail demand. ”We’ve had incredibly positive reactions from our retail partners, and so in order to meet their greater than expected demand, we decided to shift the launch date by a couple of weeks – three weeks – which will allow us to create more units and, basically, have more units on store shelves in June,” Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman told Joystiq.

Apparently an issue which also caused the controller’s buttons to get stuck under the faceplate has been addressed and the new design will be included with all retail consoles.

The Ouya will cost $99.99 at launch, with additional controllers priced at $49.99.
