Ouya review units to be available in May, backer units not fit for review

Ouya has sent an official statement where they have stated that backer units are not fit for reviews.

They revealed that they will be sending review units to press early to mid-May, and the reviews you see now aren’t true indicators of what the console can do. Ouya has been receiving a lot of negative reviews and one strong criticism is that the software isn’t up to scratch.

The final build will be released on June 4th and most problems with the console will be ironed out by then.

“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,” the statement reads.

“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.”

You can check out the unboxing video here, along with new pics of the console. There’s also a complete list of launch titles available for the system.
