The $99 OUYA Android games console that raised an incredible $8.5m on Kickstarter, and which started shipping to backers in March, is now available on general sale. Best of all, if you missed out on it on Kickstarter, it will still only cost you $99 from Amazon and other retaillers.

The OUYA is pretty much a Nexus 7 without the screen: a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage with a USB port that allows both USB keys and external hard drives to be connected. It comes with a wireless controller with removable faceplates. Hook it up to your TV and the box outputs at full 1080p HD …

A key feature of the OUYA is try-before-you-buy on all games. As well as all the standard Android games, there are some OUYA-only exclusives.

It’s currently showing out of stock, but you can order now and get one delivered as soon as they become available again.
