Ouya offers Limited Edition console

Ouya is offering a Limited Edition console to investors who pledge funding in the final week of its Kickstart campign.

The Limited Edition Backer Exclusive is encase in a 'rich brown brushed metal finish' with a matching control pad. Ouya will be offering the console as a Kickstarter exclusive in the final week of its campaign to secure development funds.

Investor will need to fork over $140 (around £90) rather than the usual $99 (around £65) for the standard model. Investors based outside the United States will also have to stump up a further $20 (around £13) for packaging and delivery.

At the time of this writing, Ouya's Kicstarter campaign has amassed a whopping $6,337,612 towards development costs, easily surpassing the original target of $950,000. The campaign ends on the 9th of August.

Ouya has attracted a lot of attention from players and the gaming industry. Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy III will be made available as a launch title and cloud gaming service OnLive is also on board. However, the open source nature of the platform has prompted some gaming industry analysts to voice concerns that Ouya will be a tough sell with major games publishers.

The Ouya console is designed by award-winning designer, Yves Behar, and his firm Fuseproject. Its design specifications are as follows:

   Tegra3 quad-core processor
    1GB RAM
    8GB of internal flash storage
    HDMI connection to the TV, with support for up to 1080p HD
    WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
    Bluetooth LE 4.0
    USB 2.0 (one)
    Wireless controller with standard controls (two analog sticks, d-pad, eight action buttons, a system button), a touchpad
    Android 4.0
    ETHERNET! (Announced by Muffi 7/18)
