Sometimes it pays to be a fence-sitter. Over the past year, early adopters of the OUYA console have been hit with a string of infuriating delays, with some backers forced to wait up to 77 days to receive their purchase. For those who chose to bide their time and wait, the dinky Android gizmo can now be snapped up from Amazon for $89.99.
While OUYA famously retailed for $99 in the US ("the console for under one hundred bucks!"), prices down under tend to be a bit steeper — a cursory scan of Google Shopping turns up an average price of around $150. Even with shipping costs, this is still one of the better deals you're likely to see for this console.
The deal includes a OUYA wireless controller and case finished in sand-blasted aluminum and plastic which houses a nVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal flash storage. It also comes with inbilt WiFi, Bluetooth and a HDMI output.
The OUYA might not be perfect (you can read the official Kotaku review here, but for a mere $90 this isn't a bad way to waste the holidays. Just be sure to pay your respects to those brave pioneers for making it possible. Head over to Amazon to check out the deal.
