Ouya Game Console Launch Delayed

by Shane McGlaun

If you’re one of the vast number of people who backed the Ouya game console when it was on Kickstarter, another bit of bad news has turned up. The company has announced that it has again delayed the launch of the Android-powered game console. The good news is the delay is only an additional three weeks, at least right now.


The original launch date was to be June 4th, and the new launch date is the 25th. Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman says that the decision was made to be able to meet the expected high demand in retail outlets. However, another reason for the delay has to do with the original design of the game controller.


Uhrman said that the buttons were sticking under the edges of the faceplate when pressed on some occasions. The fix for the problem was to make the whole for the buttons slightly larger. Ouya says that controls in production right now have larger buttons and the problem has been addressed.

Uhrman said, “We’ve had incredibly positive reactions from our retail partners, and so in order to meet their greater than expected demand, we decided to shift the launch date by a couple of weeks – three weeks – which will allow us to create more units and, basically, have more units on store shelves in June.”
