OUYA Finds a Friend With Amazon

OUYA raised more than $8.5 million from a Kickstarter campaign and has been taking preorders for the consoles on its website. In all, there are more than 68,000 consoles on order, CEO Julie Uhrman said in an interview.

Some question whether the console will be successful. Nintendo released a sobering outlook earlier this year, slashing its sales outlook in the wake of disappointing holiday demand for the Wii U.
