The Ouya home console has officially come to an end: Razer has announced that on June 25th the store and the servers linked to the project will be permanently closed and it will no longer be possible to download games and use online services.
Funded on Kickstarter with over nine million dollars, the Ouya project has never been as successful as expected due to a rather sketchy distribution and management. In 2015 the company was bought by Razer who kept the project up to date, albeit with numerous ups and downs and with a media outcry now definitively extinguished.
The history of Ouya is therefore destined to end in a month, we hope that the experience of this platform can serve as a warning for anyone who intends to embark on such a competitive business without experience and without long-term financial support.
