OUYA Kickstarter ends with $8.6 million pledged

Powering on

The OUYA Kickstarter came to a close last night. Since its launch 30 days ago, 63,416 people have backed the open-source video game console pledging a total of $8,596,475.

The OUYA reached its initial goal of $950,000 in just about nine hours.

Multiple developers and publishers have announced their support of the new console with Namco Bandai currently in "active discussions" to become the next to bring some of their properties to the Android-based system.

One of the console's biggest titles announced so far will be an episodic prequel to Human Element, a new game from former Call of Duty creative strategist Robert Bowling's new company Robotoki.
