Julie Uhrman Ouya CEO has recently confirmed that just over a quarter of OUYA owns have actually purchased a game on the Android games console.
Uhrman was recently involved with an interview on The Verge where she said that “Monetization on Ouya is so far better than we expected,” with 13 of Ouya’s top 20 grossing games have managed to achieve an 8 percent upsell average with Uhrman stating that “these numbers will grow.”
“I think there are a lot of social and mobile app developers that would kill for an 8 percent attach rate on a platform that’s 30 days old,” she said. “These numbers will grow as more gamers pick up consoles, and as we attract more developers, and I believe that by the end of the year, we’ll see a few developers telling us they’ve made more than a million dollars on Ouya.”
Along with the growing number of sales, Uhrman also confirmed that around 21,000 developers are now signed up to make numerous games for the $99 console, a massive increase from March, when only 8,000 developers were signed up.
Additionally, Ouya have recently created a new Kickstarter campaign in attempts to encourage new developers to create games for the platform. As part of the funding, games created by the developers will feature six months of exclusivity to Ouya.
TowerFall developer Matt Thorson previously revealed that his Indie creation has sold over 2,000 copies to date, proving that people are interested in buying and playing games available on the Ouya.
