Ouya launches 16GB model for $130

Ouya has launched a revised 16GB version for $30 more than its basic 8GB model. It also includes a matte black finish, boosted wifi, and a revised controller.

The Android-powered Ouya hasn't exactly set the world ablaze, but the company has put out a new model with a few revisions to tempt new buyers. The new model doubles the memory and offers a few other hardware revisions, all with a new paint job for $129.99.

The new price tag makes it pricier than the basic model that goes for $99.99. Both versions are available to purchase through the official site, but the extra $30 gives you 16GB of memory instead of eight, a matte black finish, boosted WiFi, and a revised controller.

Ouya had previously promised a version 2.0 of its console to come sometime this year, and mentioned an updated controller in the works as well. The company specifically mentioned fixing the triggers and thumbsticks, and implied that it would be launched into the market stealthily instead of advertising the revised controllers as improved. This one isn't being called 2.0, but it certainly seems to fit the description of one that was given last year.

        Whenever I respond to these I feel like those kids they had in the movie Equilibrium who's job it was to point out people for the security forces to detain.

      Today my $70 Ouya was delivered. Looking forward to streaming steam games to my tv and playing N64.

        A friend of mine (who I alerted of this deal) got his a few hours ago, very jealous. And somehow he'd never even heard of it. He's all about the Commodore 64 emulation.

          I will post my impressions and perhaps a video of Steam streaming in action this week.

        I didn't know it could stream Steam games. Is that a recent addition?

          I heard about it a few weeks back I think. It uses nvidia shadowplayto stream. It will work on many android devices, not just ouya.

          Not limited to Ouya, can work for other pcs / laptops. Its an app based on the NVidia shield streaming tech. However it apparently works great on Ouya, and well Ouya is tiny and has HDMI out so it will fit nicely next to my tv.

      I wouldn't mind a Tegra4 version, since the current one seems to have trouble with some of the shaders with Retroarch.
