I’m excited to share this unboxing photoset of the indie video game console Ouya. As a backer I got my hands on an early console prior to the scheduled retail launch later this summer.
Ouya comes with everything you need for easy setup:
- an Ouya console
- one wireless controller (with batteries)
- cables for setup (power and HDMI)
The console box itself has the etched Angel List that includes the names of the $10,000 tier backers and their place amongst the 63,416 backers who helped bring Ouya to market.
The controller has the heft and feel of a traditional console controller. The touchpad area works well; although I’ve only really used it for moving an onscreen cursor.
The only out of place thing to mention is the included booklet doesn’t have setup instructions or include any type of user manual; it’s just a safety guidelines and information booklet.
Now I’m off to starting playing around with this new console and see what all it has to offer. Stay tuned for my impressions post coming soon on the Ouya. Meanwhile I’m counting the days until I can play Airtight Games’ Soul Fjord.
If you’re interested in picking one up, you can pre-order them direct from Ouya’s online store or online at Amazon right here. The retail release date for the Ouya is June 25.
