The Flopped Ouya Console Gets Acquired By Razer

To very little surprise, Ouya -- the company that started out on Kickstarter as an Android game console -- has been acquired. The reported suitor for the company is high-end gaming company Razer.

Ouya's sales as of late have been stagnate and never really took off after the initial hype of their Kickstarter campaign as a $99 Android game console. Even as they pulled in $5+ million USD, I was less than optimistic over their future and at that time already knew in private of Valve's Linux plans.

Razer hasn't publicly commented on what they'll do with OUYA, but most likely integrate the company's IP into their own Razer Forge TV and/or use it for upcoming micro-console products.
