With the Ouya’s Kickstarter campaign coming to a close, we thought we would bring you a final couple of updates for the already highly popular upcoming system.
First, gamers and multiplayer enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the Ouya will support up to four controllers. As the developers put it, “What’s the point of playing in the living room if the other folks on the couch can’t join in?” Well said, in my opinion. As the Ouya pushes itself as a home console, local multiplayer is almost a must.
Second and finally, the Ouya and Namco Bandai Games have entered into discussions to bring the successful developer/publisher’s games to the system. Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing for Namco Bandai Games America, Inc. had this to say:
NAMCO BANDAI Games and OUYA are currently in active discussions to bring some of the world’s biggest gaming properties to the exciting new open gaming platform. NAMCO BANDAI brings with it a rich history of iconic gaming franchises, from classics like PAC-MAN and GALAGA, to seminal franchises like TEKKEN and Ridge Racer, and we’re excited to explore how we can work with OUYA to bring some great titles to the forthcoming console.
With these final announcements, the Ouya’s campaign closes well past its goal. From here on out, it will be interesting to see the system take shape and become what we all hope it will.
