This news comes as the company is set to begin shipping the gaming consoles to its Kickstarter backers today. OUYA was backed by 63,416 people and grossed over $8.5 million for its Tegra 3 based console. If you did not get a chance to back the company's Kickstarter, OUYA has opened up pre-orders in both the US and UK through its website.

Yesterday I reported on Makerbot and OUYA teaming up to release a 3D printable customized case for the console, and after discussing things internally here at TweakTown, I have decided that I will print some special TweakTown Edition OUYA cases in TweakTown blue and we will hold a giveaway for them.

Keep checking back for more info on that giveaway plus a full review of the OUYA!
