It has been some time since word on the progress of the Ouya Android console was released, following the console’s incredibly fast Kickstarter funding.
There is good news however, the project is definitely going to pan out. North Americans who declined to hit up Ouya’s website for a direct pre-order of the device will be able to order them directly from several retailers, including Amazon, Target, Gamestop and Best Buy from today.
A date has also been placed on when the Android console, which is set to have a decent library of titles available at launch, will be available. June 2013 is the date and the fact that American online retailers are jumping on board now almost cements its availability in the middle of the year.
Of course locals who want a piece of the new console action do better to order the console directly from Ouya. The console and one controller is priced at $99.99, while extra controllers will cost $49.99 apiece.
