Ouya supports four controllers, Namco Bandai in 'active discussions' with company


The latest Kickstarter update on the Ouya console's funding drive (which ends tonight) brings two welcome news items: first, the console will support up to four controllers. Those interested in acquiring extra controllers at launch can add funds to their Kickstarter pledges now. "And--because we know you'll ask--if you've got your heart set on the limited edition version, we'll make sure that the controllers are matched." So don't worry if you have your heart set on that brown Ouya.

Second, the company is working on giving you more to do with those controllers; it revealed it's in "active discussions" with Namco Bandai, a publisher that we imagine is receptive to the idea of a new platform for its oft-ported library of classic games. Namco and Ouya plan to take votes on which games people would like to see via Namco's Facebook page. Warning: you're getting Pac-Man no matter what.
