Ouya is one of the several Android powered gaming consoles that took the spotlight in 2013. When it was initially launched the console only came with 8GB of onboard storage, which as you might imagine wasn’t deemed to be enough. During the holiday season Ouya released a white Limited Edition console that came with 16GB of storage. It appears that the company had decided to make this a regular offering, the Ouya 16GB console has now been launched at $129. It also comes with a few minor improvements, such as better Wi-Fi, matte black finish as well as a “refined” controller design.
The company says that it has refined the controller so that the joysticks and buttons are now “better,” and there’s less overall lag time. Moreover, the new variant also comes with the latest firmware update for the console which improves overall performance. Ouya hasn’t exactly clarified just what has enabled its console to offer better Wi-Fi connectivity. The original Ouya will still be available to purchase at its usual price, which is $99. Ouya 16GB can be purchased through Amazon or Ouya’s website right away. There’s no word as yet from the company on sales numbers, it has chosen to keep those stats under the wraps.
