Last week the finalists were selected for Kill Screen’s CREATE game competition for the upcoming Android-powered console OUYA. The finalists were all pretty strong in all the categories including the one for the grand prize. Now the winners have been selected for each category and here are the results.

While OUYA recently announced improvements to the controllers, based on feedback the company has gotten, that will be coming with the Android-based game console, one of their direct competitors has also received a new look based on feedback from backers of their Kickstarter campaign. On top of that, thanks to the successful backing that GameStick received while on Kickstarter, the unit will now come with a docking station as well.
A couple of days ago you may have noticed that the Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming portable Android gaming console GameStick had disappeared temporarily from Kickstarter. If you were a backer of the campaign, you were also treated with some neat little messages hitting your inbox regarding what was happening.
Over the past week or so all of the development kits for OUYA have gone out and since then developers have been going to video showing off the unit through a rather long walkthrough and now showing the console in action. Aptual, a Finnish developer, has taken to video to show us their upcoming game Roasty Rooster for the OUYA Android game console.
Yesterday we talked about a new Android-based game console that had hit up Kickstarter to secure funding. Coming in as direct competition to OUYA, PlayJam’s GameStick has surpassed its goal within 24 hours, leaving an additional 28 days to go for more people to throw money at them.
While OUYA happens to be the first Android-based gaming console to really see success so far even if it is just a successful Kickstarter campaign and developer support right now, there is a new kid on the block aiming to compete with OUYA called GameStick.
Another week has begun and with it comes some more OUYA news to roll around in and enjoy. First off pre-orders for OUYA units are now available outside of Kickstarter for those of you who didn’t drop some money on their campaign in order to get one early. Instead of the $99 price tag OUYA donators got their units for, pre-ordering now will set you back $109 instead ($119 for outside the US).
What sort of week would this be if there wasn’t any new OUYA news to report on? Today we actually get three little bits of news regarding OUYA, the upcoming Android-based home gaming console. This time the news is a bit less gaming related and more geared towards other services that will be arriving for the console.
Well it certainly seems that the OUYA news isn’t slowing down today at all. Now a new edition of the Android-based home gaming console has been revealed which will be given to backers who donated $140 to their Kickstarter campaign. Needless to say, it looks pretty slick.
So, all the news and commotion about the OUYA and it’s supposedly magical, revolutionary controller got me thinking about what actually using the OUYA would be like. In the promotional video, the footage shows Yves Behar and the design team working on the controller for OUYA. From what was shown, it seems like there is a ton of hard work, large amounts of care and smart design going into the feel and ergonomics of the controller.
