After the announcement of the Ouya Android console in July, interested parties flocked to the project’s Kickstarter to help it reach its ambitious $950,000 funding goal.

Then, a mere eight hours after the launch its Kickstarter campaign, the Ouya was funded with a full 29 days left to raise funds.

Fast forward through those 29 days (well, 28 technically) and the project sits at a record-breaking $7,173,000 raised – the highest amount raised for a Video Game project via Kickstarter.

Ouya? Ooo-yeah!

Although the Kickstarter was by no means flagging, Ouya infused a good amount of life into the last week of the drive by releasing a new Limited Edition Backer Exclusive – a handsome brown console with a brushed metal finish that managed to attract $725,280 (at time of writing).

With its funding well-past met, and established developers lining up to support the puissant (that means potent in show-off langauge) little Android console, the Ouya will officially meet its funding goal on August 9th and will set a very high bar for the next game-related project to meet or exceed.
