    OUYA News: OUYA Consoles Begin Shipping Today but Could take A Few Weeks for all to..

    Kickstarter OUYA Consoles Begin Shipping Today but Could take 'A Few Weeks' for All to be Shipped
    By: Ed Krassenstein


    March 28th is here, and if you are a Kickstarter backer of the OUYA game console, you probably have had this day marked on your calendar for several weeks now. Today is when OUYA is set to begin shipping their consoles to those who have backed them on Kickstarter.


    While this is great news for those of you who have been waiting. It appears that you may just have to wait a bit longer. OUYAForum.com member, "code" has posted that he contacted OUYA's support asking if he could pick up his console directly from the company, upon its release.


    "We will begin shipping this week from a remote location, so we cannot have you pick up your OUYA," explained the OUYA representative. "It will be shipped this week, and though it'll take a few weeks to ship all consoles, you will receive an email confirmation with (your) tracking number once yours is on its way."


    The fact remains that there are close to 60,000 consoles that need to be shipped out. OUYA is not a large company by any means. Thus it could take a few weeks before all the consoles are shipped out. OUYA has not stated which shipping company they will be using, or how they plan to ship the consoles. Our guess is that those backers who backed it via Kickstarter first, will have their consoles shipped first (although this has not been confirmed).

    Unfortunately by the sounds of things, some users will be waiting a few weeks before they can start playing Android based games on their TVs.

    This what I've been trying to tell people who have been expecting to have it today or before the weekend.

    @RiotingSpectre: Still getting mine at least 2 months before you

    Can't say I'm surprised. I'm stuck waiting for June at best, anyway.

    I'm thinking about making a support group for our type of people. I'd supply the oreo's and coffee so can you bring the chairs? We can talk about how (not-so) awesome it is being a June customer and try and convince ourselves that we're better than these guys while slowly being more and more dead inside...

    This is no big surprise, really. But as a lot of people were overly-optimistic about receiving it tomorrow or in a few days, this piece of "official news" does make a sad headline.

    And RiotingSpectre, you're making me all jealous that I'm not a "June backer". I want in on your group as well! The whole thing about coffee and Oreo's sound awesome!

    As a "probably" June customer, I want to be in your group, and I safely say right away that we will get a console full of 2 months worth of goodies ready to be bought, and probably a more stable firmware with full online support.

    I laughed pretty good reading this... I'm lucky enough to be a Day 1 backer, but unlucky as it'll probably still be a week before i get my OUYA while being backer 9594... Can you believe that, over 10,000 backers on the first day!!! Can't wait for my OUYA to arrive!!
