The folks behind the Android-based gaming system OUYA have revealed this week that they've been holding back a "secret weapon" of sorts in their bid for Kickstarter supremacy: Muffi Ghadiali of Lab126 from Amazon.

With $3m Ouya’s problems are just starting

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.
