Ouya’s E3 booth will be open to the public, it has been revealed. Located in a car park outside the convention centre, the Android console will be playable for members of the public and not just pass holders at the gaming expo.
Head of developer relations Kellee Santiago said it would give developers a chance to demo their games to media, industry attendees and “random people on the street”.
“We’re going all out to ensure we get the best equipment, and we’re also engineering it with the elements of an outside location in mind,” she said.
“We’re confident this will turn out to be an awesome event that you and your teams will be proud of!”
Ouya’s launch was recently pushed back from 4th June to 25th June to ensure more consoles would be available at retail.
The console raised a record $8.6 million (£5.6m) on Kickstarter when the project’s founders appealed for funding on the crowd-sourcing platform.
It has since gained major developer support from the likes of Double Fine and Words with Friends co-creator Paul Bettner.
Powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Ouya packs 8GB of Flash memory, 1GB RAM, Bluetooth connectivity and a HDMI connection for hooking the system up to a TV screen.
GAME recently announced that it is taking pre-orders for the console, which will retail at £99 in the UK and $99 in the US.
