OUYA KickStarter Campaign Officially Closed, Raises $8,596,475 with 63,416 Backers

Well that was a wild month! With a KickStarter campaign that launched on July 10, the OUYA made a whirlwind in the gaming industry by its breakneck speed of fundraising (it’s goal of $950k was broken in under 12 hours) and the massive interest it caused.

Now that the campaign has officially come to a close, the OUYA team has a hefty $8,596,475 in their pockets to make this console something incredible, we hope.  It’s mind boggling that all they wanted was a “simple” $950,000 and ended up with nearly 9x as much. It goes to show that their could be a possible “changing of the guard” in the gaming industry, one that we are very excited to be a part of and watch unfold!
