When the time ran out, Ouya boasted 63,416 who backed the console for a total of $8.59 million. Originally, the goal was a mere $950,000.
The Kickstarter went live in early June, and those who have contributed $95 or more since then will be getting an Ouya as soon as it is ready to ship.
Ouya continually gained support from a fair share of the gaming community as well as from some high profile partners. OnLive, Namco Bandai, and Vevo are all on board, meaning the Android based console won’t just be playing Angry Birds on your TV.
Boxer 8 still has their work cut out for them before the console is set to ship this upcoming March. They still need to finish building software, the app store, and payment platform their system will run on.
In the end, they hope to deliver an Ouya that supports up to 4 wireless controllers, has built in WI-FI, 8 GB of internal storage, one USB 2.0 slot and one SD card slot.
Boxer 8 boss Julie Uhram guarantees that they currently have enough money to produce 80,000 consoles and ship every one.
“We will be absolutely bringing a product to the platform in coming months,” she told the NY Times.
