Two new Kickstarter records have been set by a project whose popularity has exploded since it was added to the site. The Ouya video game console became the fastest project to raise a million bucks and raised the most money ever raised on Kickstarter in one day.  The low-cost, Android-based, open-source device intends to pave the way for independent game developers to get their games to your television screen.  Kickstarter users seem to agree with that sentiment; the project is raising money so fast, if I say a number now, it will be inaccurate by the time my voice reaches your ears and it still has until August 9th to raise more money.  Gamers are hungry for a new system – it’s been several years since the release of a popular tv-based device and technology and gaming has advanced significantly since then. The console is expected to be available in 2013 and by pledging 99-dollars or more, you can reserve one for yourself.
