    This news came in late Friday, so we didn't quite get to it. It may have been percolating over the weekend, but just in case you didn't see it, we have word that the first Jelly-Bean powered OUYA development console will be shipping out on December 28th. As you can see by the pics we included, the OUYA prototype has also been outed. The first run development consoles will ship out to folks who pledged $699 or more. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    it just seems underpowered... 1 gb of ram and a tegra 3? I guess since it's not powering it's own screen sure... just... I guess we'll see. it's definitely interesting that's for sure.

    agreed. I don't get the benefit of this over just taking a phone with HDMI out and connecting a controller through Bluetooth. It's interesting for sure, but not $699 interesting in my book. Should be cheaper than a Wii IMO

    the developer consoles were 699 and up. I got mine reserved for 99$ and that's the actual price they will sell for
