Ouya Nearing Target With One Week To Go

The android-based Ouya console is reportedly getting close to attaining the targeted $6m figure on crowd-funding portal Kickstarter.

With one week to go until backing is closed, the Ouya project has received a total of $5,977,463 from 46,613 backers, making Ouya the biggest financial success story on Kickstarter to date.

MCV note that the Ouya has already achieved three records with Kickstarter:

  • The highest amount pledged
  • The fastest campaign to reach $1m (eight hours and 22 minutes)
  • The most raised in a single day ($3.2m)

The support for the Ouya hasn’t stopped with just backers, developers and publisher have shown that they are serious about supporting the console.
