Ouya Release Date Slips To Late June
Games console delayed in order to get more units on the shelves...
Gamers eagerly awaiting the OuyaAndroid-based console will have to wait a little longer than expected.
The release date for the device has now been put back to Tuesday, 25 June - having previously been scheduled for 4 June.
Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman told Joystiq that the extra weeks would allow for more consoles to be available on the launch date.
"We've had incredibly positive reactions from our retail partners, and so in order to meet their greater than expected demand, we decided to shift the launch date by a couple of weeks - three weeks - which will allow us to create more units and, basically, have more units on store shelves in June."
And she also revealed that modifications have been made to the controller following teething problems which saw the buttons getting stuck under the faceplate.
"I don't know what the exact millimetre is, but we've increased the size just a little bit, so now the buttons don't stick under it. We made that change very early so all the units are being produced with those larger button holes," she explained.
The console will launch at £99 in the UK.
