Kickstarter really is an amazing service

Crowdfunding is great, and Kickstarter just works perfectly at it.
Today, I "backed" a project for a little over $100.

This project is "Ouya", a game console based on Android, focusing on making it easier for developers to produce games for the TV (as compared to how difficult it can be to see your game on the big 3 Nintendo/Xbox/Playstation), and on making it cheap for consumers, while very flexible (they encourage software/hardware hacking and… the fact that it runs Android means that you can do pretty much anything with it).

This kickstarter project was launched approximately 15 hours ago and it has already reached its 1 month target: $950,000. Within 24 hours, it will have reached the million.

EDIT : OK, Million reached already.

  1. Indeed… but we can hope that this crowdfunding process is some sort of sign to "the world" that there is some traction behind it. Time will tell, and if it does not work, I will just need to keep my console for a couple of decades and sell it as video games antique :).

  2. I am part of "early bird" group and I am pumped to try it out. If enough people get behind this I believe it will be a huge hit. Hopefully Netflix, hulu, etc, will eventually support it!

  3. We are part of the same group then :).
    Again, I feel like it can be "great" with all of those (potential) supports, but even without it, on the android ecosystem alone, it can still be pretty decent I reckon.
