The Ouya console is no longer vaporware. The company announced on its blog on Friday that 1,200 Ouya console developer kits are boxed up and ready to be shipped out to awaiting programmers. Each kit includes a frosted translucent Ouya console that is about the size of a coffee mug, two frosted translucent controllers with batteries, an HDMI cable, a power cable and a Micro USB cable. As Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman explains in the unboxing video below, the console’s design might still be tweaked and the feel of the controller will undergo a few minor changes before it ships to consumers in March.
