This video shows the developers’ edition of the Ouya leaving its box. Over a thousand have been shipped which might be why the company is saying that any gamer who’s lept in this early will not find any games yet.
The developers’ edition is transparent plastic. The main version of the Ouya will not be. However, they do say the Ouya has been designed to be opened so that hardware hackers can have a mess around. Given what some folk have done with the Raspberry Pi I think the idea of a hardware hacked Ouya is really interesting.
The controllers are also designed to allow the front panels to come off so gamers can customise those too.
