Ouya Launching in June, Major Retailers Now Taking Pre-Orders

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.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
