One of the biggest reasons that people spoke out against the OUYA, the Android console that came from Kickstarter, is the fact that it would become so quickly outdated. The traditional Android market, and the chips that go in such devices, constantly churns through iterations because the materials keep becoming better and better. Turns out, OUYA's going to follow the same model. CEO Julie Uhrman reportedly told Engadget [t]here will be a a new OUYA every year."

I apologize, dear readers -- we've been utterly remiss in reporting about Ouya, the Kickstarter sensation that aims to pack an open, Android-based game platform and development kit into a teensy console, effectively bringing the best parts about hackable indie gaming to the television. In only eight hours, Ouya raised $1 million, surpassing its original goal of crowdfunding $950,000 in 30 days. With just 35 hours remaining on their Kickstarter, Ouya has raised $7,163,016, from a total of 53,891 people interested in the project. Oh, and the icing of top of this so-far successful gaming project cake? The entire project is led by gaming industry veteran Julie Uhrman. Hit the jump to find out more about this woman-led, revolutionary console!
Getting tired of hearing about the OUYA? Too bad! Here's a bit more. The little Android-powered gaming machine has entered its final week on Kickstarter and has revealed even more of its cool features. It turns out that it'll be getting the music video service VEVO, as well as a sexy new limited edition console for early backers. The OUYA has exploded and it seems like everyone wants in. But how much success is too much success? Will the new announcements compromise the OUYA's original mission?
