It's been confirmed that the Ouya development consoles will ship out on December 28. The dev Ouya consoles will go to those that invested $700 in the console's Kickstarter.
“The dev consoles are an early version of the Ouya console and controller designed for developers to test their games on Ouya. Our Kickstarter developers are the first to get a crack at ‘em! We’re psyched to have you on board, and we can’t wait to see what pours from your brain!” wrote Jules Kane of Ouya. "Of course, when the final consoles ship, EVERY Ouya will be a dev console. We told you that already. What we didn’t tell you was that the advance dev consoles you ordered are pretty special – you’ll know what I mean when you open yours. They’re rare drops.”
It was also announced that emails will be sent out on December 25 to confirm users preference for Ouya usernames.
