Ouya entering more European retail markets this month


Kickstarted microconsole Ouya is set to expand its retail presence in Europe this month, following up on its UK launch earlier this year.

The standalone £99 unit will hit stores in Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Benelux, Scandanavia, Norway and Denmark starting in late October. Distributors Flashpoint and Digital Brothers will handle distribution duties in Western Europe, while Action and P.A. will keep shelves stocked in Eastern Europe.

To date, the Ouya hosts 457 games in its online storefront, all of which are available as free trial downloads. Company representatives aim to bulk up the console's catalog with the recently overhauled Free the Games Fund, which matches money earned for Kickstarter-funded Ouya projects.
