With five days to go before the Kickstarter campaign for OUYA comes to an end, OUYA has announced a new business with radio streaming service iHeartRadio. Earlier, the OUYA team had revealed that the console will offer streaming games through OnLive.
On OUYA’s Kickstarter page, iHeartRadio talked about what this partnership means for OUYA users. iHeartRadio will let users to tune into over 1,000 different radio stations across the country through their OUYA, varying from rock to college stations. Users can also create their own ad-free custom radio stations. iHeartRadio claims that it has over 14,000 songs to pick from while making a perfect playlist.
It is quite the same service that was already received on mobile devices and Xbox 360, except that with OUYA, the iHeartRadio team is promising an HTML 5 app made especially for large screen formats.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Rodomodo’s Human Element prequel will be an OUYA exclusive. And Square Enix’s announcement that Final Fantasy III will be a launch day title means OUYA has some serious names backing it up.
Things are definitely beginning to look good as the Kickstarter winds down. It seems the OUYA team will have more than enough money by the end of the campaign..
