People have shown a lot of love for the Android-powered Ouya game console, but would you have predicted the Kickstarter project generating a whopping $2 million in just one day? That impressive figure now stands as the most successful Kickstarter project ever created, and with 28 more days to go that number is sure to rise even higher. The promise of Ouya's abilities of open-source gaming hit all the right notes for gamers - an extremely moddable $99 game box coupled with a sleek gamepad. Let's hope the actual game library matches the system's lofty ambitions. Now that the team have their funding secured they have reached out to backers for feedback on its long-term plans - so if you're a backer (or a potential one) what do you want in your Ouya console? Better hardware specs? Surely they can manage to squeeze in more powerful graphics in that little box. Console-quality games? The marketing puts emphasis on free-to-play titles, but if the diminutive machine gets a sizeable player base triple AAA games should be on the list, too.
