OUYA’s Kickstarter campaign is ending tonight, but the company has sent out an update to insure investors in the highly hyped Android gaming box that the real work is only beginning.
Updated with the official statement:
“NAMCO BANDAI Games and OUYA are currently in active discussions to bring some of the world’s biggest gaming properties to the exciting open gaming platform,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, NAMCO BANDAI Games America, Inc. “NAMCO BANDAI brings with it a rich history of iconic gaming franchises, from classics like PAC-MAN and GALAGA, to seminal franchises like TEKKEN and Ridge Racer, and we’re excited to explore how we can work with OUYA to bring some great titles to the forthcoming console.”
Additionally, OUYA is rounding out media player support with Plex. Yesterday the company announced support for XBMC but is looking to please customers with their choice of media streaming software.
As the end of OUYA’s first round of funding draws near, the company has already sold out of personalized OUYA consoles as well developer preview editions. I still hold the opinion that OUYA won’t be quite as successful as most think it will be, but I have to admit they have done a remarkable job turning concept into cash cow.
