Thus far, it doesn't seem that Ouya developers have been raking in the money, with only a few developers reporting sales in the thousands of dollars. Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman defended the console, telling The Verge that sales have been "better than expected" and adding that it's "too early" to judge the platform's success.
Regardless of the money being earned, a full 27 percent of Ouya owners have purchased a game, she said. Furthermore, 13 of the top 20 Ouya games have earned an 8 percent conversion rate, a number she said many developers would "kill for" on such a young platform. She predicted that by the end of 2013, "we'll see a few developers telling us they've made more than a million dollars on Ouya."
