A few days from the end of donations on Kickstarter, the 'Ouya' console already has the support of more than 44.000 people, surpassing the 5 million dollars in donations, which could lead the project to become a reality.

It is now confirmed that in addition to the console aiming to bring Android games to TV, 'Ouya' will also support OnLive, game streaming system (where the game is “played remotely”/”in the cloud” ) which already has the support of more than 80 production companies and includes great titles, such as 'Assassin's Creed Revelations' (Ubisoft) and 'DiRT 3' (Codmasters).
