Ouya, the revolutionary gaming console that became one of the most successful projects ever to debut in Kickstarter, is making a steady progress so far. Julie Uhrman, the driving force behind Ouya, announced that the team has been busy refining the hardware design of the gaming console. Just last week, the team got its first development run of PCBs and its engineers were able to squeeze all the quad-core goodness into the small printed circuit boards. Uhrman also announced that Ouya is now in the Engineering Verification Testing (EVT) phase, which means that the team are now testing the console and its controller on the software.
“We’re set to complete this EVT phase on time, and we’re in sync with our December target for developer kits,” she added. But the good news doesn’t stop there. The team is also happy to announce that Ouya will be running the latest Android operating system – Jelly Bean. Apparently the team is keen to ensure that the “one-of-a-kind” video gaming console is running the latest Android operating system. We still don’t know if it’s actually Android 4.1 or Android 4.2.
