The Ouya is both the biggest gaming Kickstarter and the biggest gaming Kickstarter failure. While it seemed promising, as it earned more than a whopping eight million dollars, the open-source Android console now joins failed consoles like the Virtual Boy and the 3DO. The Ouya was sold on lofty promises, such as that it would compete with modern consoles despite its hardware being more akin to that of a cellphone.
Despite the incredible amount of love and goodwill put into the console by its development team, it released with little fanfare and from public view almost immediately. The last blog entry on the Kickstarter page, which ironically reads "Gonna fix this" came out almost three years ago, and the hardware has been discontinued.
