New Ouya console now available for $130

An updated version of the Android-powered Ouya console is available in North America starting today. The new box, outside of sporting double the storage capacity, comes with a refined controller, improved WiFi innards, a new matte black finish and all of the latest firmware updates, right out of the box. It also features a slightly steeper price tag of $130, which is $30 more than the current Ouya console.

A similar version of this console was offered in North America during the holidays last year, albeit in a matte white color scheme. You can grab this new Ouya through Amazon or directly through the Ouya shop.

About OUYA
OUYA is a new kind of game console for the television that brings together an open development experience-where any creator can publish a game to the living room-with an accessible and affordable console at $99, with all games free to try. OUYA supports both the downloading and streaming of entertainment content in 1080p HD quality. Built on an open OS with a custom interface and store, OUYA focuses on the fun factor of games-games are organized by featured playlists and overall player engagement and not by revenue or downloads-enabling the most fun game experiences to shine. OUYA was envisioned by founder and CEO Julie Uhrman, and beautifully designed by award-winning designer Yves Behar.
