Ouya announced today through their blog that the company is getting ready to ship out developer consoles to those who backed the project on Kickstarter at a developer level. Developers should have their hands on these bad boys by early January. The company says that the developer kits will be leaving the factory on December 28th and will only take a couple of days to get to their destinations (though shipping them to certain countries may have delays). OUYA mentioned today that every console can be used for development, which might be upsetting to those who ordered dedicated development kits. Don’t worry though, as the blog post went on to mention that the ones getting shipped are extremely special. OUYA’s JulesKane said, “you’ll know what I mean when you open yours. They’re rare drops. ;)”
In addition to all that, OUYA says that account activation’s should begin happening by the time Christmas is here. They went on to mention that the team is still working away at the software side of things, but based on the blog post, it seems like everything is going to be ready by the time OUYA’s start arriving at their designated locations!

Are you excited to see that the OUYA development kits are almost here? I personally can’t wait to see all of the games that people manage to come up with. Especially if their is a OUYA equivalent of the Ludum Dare!
