These things take time: OUYA reacts to early reviews

'The software, store, games will continue to evolve and grow'

By now, you've probably come across a review or two for the Android-based OUYA console. The current version of this system that was sent out to Kickstarter backers has been criticized for a number of issues, ranging from a lacking software library to an undesirable user interface and controller. Generally, it sounds like what you might expect to find as an early adopter.

"We will be making OUYA review units available in early to mid-May so that you are able to review the more complete consumer experience and prepare your coverage in time for the June 4th retail launch," a representative told GamesIndustry International. "To clarify for you -- OUYA has sent no review units out to press. Any reviews you have seen online are a result from individuals who received early backer units from supporting our Kickstarter."

This rep said the current phase will be used "to test our eco-system and fine-tune the experience" for the wider OUYA audience. "The software, store, games will continue to evolve and grow, and as early backers who have exclusive access during this period before launch, we want you to be a part of that process," reads a post on the official blog. We'll be watching.
