The first Ouya development consoles will be arriving to their owners just in time for the New Year.
The Android-powered consoles are set to leave the factory on December 28, and should be in the hands of developers "within a couple of days", according to the Ouya team.
Developers who pledged the required funds to the console's Kickstarter fund will be the first to get the micro-sized Android box.
"When the final consoles ship, every Ouya will be a dev console. We told you that already," reads the official blog.
"What we didn't tell you was that the advance dev consoles you ordered are pretty special - you'll know what I mean when you open yours. They're rare drops," it teases.
Ouya dev software will be available to all - not just Ouya console owners - in time for the dev kit arrival.
