Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman Speaks on Ouya’s Current Growth, “1000 Developers Sign Up Every Month”
Since its launch last summer, media buzz and attention around the Android-powered micro-console, Ouya, has slowed significantly – however, Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman has had much to say on the console’s growth over the last year since its debut.
Speaking in an interview, Uhrman revealed a number of facts and statistics on the console’s growth since its retail release in June 2013, with the biggest being that the micro-console currently harbors a community of over 36,000 game developers creating games for the console, with just over half living outside North America, and “close to 1,000 developers” that sign up every month to create/publish games on Ouya. Uhrman spoke further, saying:
“We’ve seen the average value per game almost double since we launched. The average user is downloading twice as many games as they did initially. Engagement is incredibly strong and continues to grow month over month. As we continue to add more users to the pipe, we’re still holding onto them longer. So we’re actually pretty thrilled.”
