If there's one thing gamers don't want for, it's faith, and they've revealed a damn lot of it with the OUYA fundraiser. The open-source Android console has officially reached its deadline on Kickstarter, rising well above its goal with $8,596,475 in the bank. 

63,416 people funded the system. Now we'll find out whether this thing will be a reality, or a great big scam as Ben Kuchera still insists. I really hope it's the former ... Ben will be insufferable (love you, Ben). 

In any case, it's pretty interesting to see just how much this community is willing to invest in a project it believes in. It's only a matter of time before the Activisions and EAs of the world decide to try it too.
