With only one week left for the Kickstarter, the OUYA is looking really good. It’s currently sitting pretty at over $6 million having been donated with support from both OnLive and from Square Enix in the form of Final Fantasy III. Now, they’ve got another big-name supporter in the form of VEVO, who will be partnering with OUYA (which I shall henceforth call this partnership VEVOUYA, by the way) to bring its music video library to the console.
In addition to that, they added a special donation tier to their Kickstarter that’s only available during the last week. If you put down $140 towards the OUYA, you will receive a specially colored console that will only be available during the last week of this KickStarter and only through this donation tier. You’ll need to pay an extra $20 for international shipping and an extra $30 for a second controller.
I’ve been debating whether or not I want to get a Wii U or an OUYA for quite sometime. Honestly, at this point, the OUYA has been more attractive to me. The lower price point, the degree of customization, and the fact that the system will be the first console to support OnLive has me more interested in it than the Wii U’s features or line-up. I just really hope the console does well when it’s launched next year.
