According to a job listing popping up this week, "in the next 18 months" there's going to be a whole new batch of Microsoft products including not least of all a whole new Xbox. This job listing says quite specifically what the new hire will be working on, it including no less than a year and a half of efforts into essentially a whole new collection of interfaces for Microsoft hardware.

This guarantee was initially only made to developers signing up to the development program for the gaming console, but other Kickstarter-friendly users have been assured of the option to root (with instructions) as well. The project known as Ouya has been quite vocal about being "open-source" since they first appeared on the croudfunding site Kickstarter some weeks ago, and now that they've raised many times their original asking amount to get their project in motion, they appear more than willing to continue with their initial promises.

With $3m Ouya’s problems are just starting

Kickstarter has its latest king, and the Ouya Android console has found itself at the eye of a perfect storm of geek-appeal. Satisfying the retro lusts of console gamers with the open-source idealism of Android aficionados, all wrapped up in a minimal casing the designer cred of which should satisfy all but the most staunch of minimalists, Ouya has unsurprisingly blasted past the $3m mark and, with 28 days left to run, could well become the next poster-child of crowdsourced funding. Make no mistake, though; if previous Kickstarter heroes like Twine and Pebble thought they had problems, Ouya faces a nightmare along with all that cash.
