OUYA gaming console up for pre-order on GAME UK for £99.99, no shipping date yet
Oh, yeah! If you’ve been waiting for OUYA to hit stores in the UK, now here’s your chance to grab the Android-powered gaming system.
Video game retailer GAME is now taking pre-order for OUYA on its website, where it’s currently offered for £99.99 with free shipping included. If you got the money to spare, you can also snag an extra controller for £39.99. Just don’t expect the device to ship anytime soon.
While the listing on GAME doesn’t specifically mention when the NVIDIA-backed device will become available, the console maker has hinted before that it wants to bring OUYA to a wider audience in June. There’s no guarantee that the date will stick, though.
If you do decide to take the plunge, we heard that OUYA might ship with some emulators onboard that will allow you to run NES, SNES, and N64 games. The console should also be compatible with XBMC, in case you want to use it for other than playing games.
How about it? Planning to go possibly against your better judgment and pre-order it from GAME?
