    It doesn't seem like it was a month ago that we first broke the story about the OUYA Android gaming console, but time ticks by quickly in the tech world. The incredible little start-up concept's popularity has certainly skyrocketed in that short time. The concept's original investor goal on Kickstarter was $950,000 dollars. That goal turned out to be paltry in hindsight, as they shattered it in less than 24 hours.

    In just about a month, they have already hit almost 10 times that original goal. Their investor pledges are already up to $8,596,475! Additionally, during that time they have racked up a ton of great partnerships with some big players in the industry. Here's a quote with a recap of some of them,
