Report: Tech Luminaries Backing $99 Ouya Home Console

While Ouya, (the $99 Android-based games console that promises an open-source-style high-concept developer ecosystem) may be just a concept at this stage, it's hard not to take notice of it when so many major players are attached to it already. According to a post on AngelList (unearthed by Polygon / The Verge), the device has Jawbone Jambox and One Laptop Per Child designer Yves Behar, Ed Fries (inventor of the original Xbox), Amol Sarva of Peek, Amazon's Lab126 Muffi Ghadiali (who helped develop the Kindle), Peter Pham of Color, and Julie Uhrman of IGN as its founder and CEO.

There's no denying that this is a pretty impressive list of people backing this device. The Ouya promises to be cheap, easily connected to your TV and to give everyone that buys the device a development kit so they can develop their own stuff if they so choose.

We'll have more on this fascinating device as it becomes available.
