http://ectnews.com.feedsportal.com – Ouya looked to kickstart funding of its Android-based game console, and the effort has resulted in more than nine times the amount it sought. Ouya had asked to backers to pledge $950,000 through the Kickstarter website, and the total climbed to nearly $8.6 million as of Thursday, the day the campaign was scheduled to end. In addition to individual pledges, the company has gotten support from large game publishers including Square Enix and Namco Bandai. Last month, Ouya also announced a partnership to provide content from the OnLive game streaming service. (General)
