Ouya will be available in the U.S. from June, and the console can now be pre-ordered from several major retailers.

The console comes with one controller and will set you back $99. Ouya can be pre-ordered from retailers such as Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, and Target. A standalone controller will cost $49.99. “It’s a premium price for a controller, but the inclusion of the touchpad really makes it a premium in the marketplace,” Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman told the Wall Street Journal.

“The number of orders have grown each month. We haven’t disclosed any numbers. I think it’s fair to say to get established players in the retail space excited about pre-selling Ouya speaks to the excitement in the marketplace. We’ve had 68,000 backers, we have more than that in pre-orders today,” Uhrman added.
