Ouya heading to retail in June for $100, controller $50
The Ouya game console will go on sale in stores, shortly after it ships to backers of it's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278624==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/08/07/kickstarter.campaign.hits.50000.consoles.sold/" rel='nofollow'>Kickstarter drive</a>. Amazon.com, Best Buy, GameStop and Target will be stocking the Android-powered console when it goes on sale to the general public in June, after orders on the Ouya <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278625==http://shop.ouya.tv/" rel='nofollow'>website</a> ship in April, and after the Kickstarter backers receive theirs in March. <br />
<br />
The Ouya will cost $100 in stores and will come with one controller, while additional controllers will cost $50 each. The prices match those of the Ouya website, though the controller works out to be $20 more than ones supplied through the Kickstarter campaign.

The console reached almost $8.6 million during the Kickstarter drive, and is said to use a quad-core Tegra 3 processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of flash storage. Developers pledging $700 or more to the campaign received transparent <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278626==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/12/28/dev.version.of.console.features.transparent.case.m icrousb.port/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">developer consoles</a> in January, with non-final versions of the controllers, and an additional MicroUSB port for simpler connection to computers.
