The Ouya console has been in the news quite a bit this week. The upstart company has shattered their kickstarter threshold of $950,000 and as of this writing are at $3,666,476 with almost 30,000 backers. Ouya's concept is a breath of fresh air for gamers and quite honestly a cause for concern for major companies because lower cost games are gaining traction. I personally am excited to see what Ouya has in store for gamers and how will the big three will react when the console hits the market. Here is a bit more about Ouya's milestone from Complex.
