It took a day for Ouya, an Android-based video game console, to meet its goal on Kickstarter. In fact, Ouya has already more than tripled the mark.
The proposed project, which sought $950,000 in funding from Kickstarter, has more than $3 million halfway through its first day on the fundraising website and still has about a month left to collect more money.
Ouya started a buzz Tuesday after the project was announced. The start-up company, which shares its name with its console, wants to bring the ease of developing video games from smartphones back to TVs by running on Android.
Upon its release, which is currently set for March 2013, developers will be able to create games and sell them in the same fashion they do now with Android devices.
