One good thing about a device being slow to hit the market is this – they will be a whole lot more advanced in terms of specifications (or at least some) compared to the original shipping date, not to mention giving the team behind said device to sharpen up and optimize the software. The Ouya console is one of them, where this $99 video game console has just announced that instead of including Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice, it will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
Apart from that, Ouya also shared that the first printed circuit boards have already arrived, and the entire team will be able to ship out the Software Developer Kit for game-makers and developers sometime in December. Definitely a Christmas worth looking forward to, don’t you think so? We do hope that the $8 million plus of funds that were raised throughout a Kickstarter campaign that happened earlier this year will be put to good use, and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor powered console which is tipped for an early 2013 will hopefully be able to perform as intended – and perhaps, even exceed the expectations of the masses.
