Ouya Kidding? Kickstarter-Funded Console to Get Annual Revisions
Crowd-sourced Android console Ouya will see an annual revision cycle that will match that of Apple's iPad.

The company's CEO, Julie Uhrman told Engadget that the Ouya that you buy one year will be outdated the next, following in the footsteps of the mobile industry. "Our strategy is very much similar to the mobile strategy," she said.

"There will be a new Ouya every year. There will be an Ouya 2 and an Ouya 3," she added. "We'll take advantage of faster, better processors, take advantage of prices falling. So if we can get more than 8GB of Flash in our box, we will." Each new Ouya will be backwards compatible with the last.

Lovely ambitions, but perhaps the company should focus on making the first Ouya a success before looking too far ahead. The console will launch in June for around $100.
