In a surprise Razer has purchased the struggling microconsole company OUYA for an undisclosed amount, specially its software assets. 


After months of rumors about the company’s financial issues former CEO and co-founder Julie Uhrman went to Twitter to reveal the transactions stating “@Razer Can’t wait to see what you do. Take care of my incredible team and community…I know you will.”

Along with its catalog of content and software assets Razer has taken control of OUYA’s technical and development teams. Razer has stated that they’ll support the console for 12 months while it makes the transition to its own Forge TV microconsole, allowing users to merge their OUYA accounts once everything is in order.

The OUYA is an Android microconsole developed by Ouya Inc. and founded by Julie Uhrman. The system was funded via Kickstarter, raising $8.5 million and launched on March 28, 2013 to all supporters with a public release on June 25, 2013. The platform hosted a myriad of casual games and supported media applications such as TwitchTV and XBMC media player.
