Ouya, the Android-based game console, will release in June at retailers including Amazon, Gamestop, Target and Best Buy, according to an interview conducted by the Wall Street Journal with Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman.

The extra small video game console will be launch this summer at a price of $99.99. A second controller will set gamers back $49.99. Pre-orders for the Android-powered game system are being accepted now at retail outlets. Units that are pre-ordered will begin shipping in April.

[adsense250itp]Ouya began as a Kickstarter campaign last year and went on to raise $8.59 million in funding. Supporters of the Kickstarter for Ouya are expected to receive their units in March. The crowd-funded project gained more than 68,000 backers through Kickstarter.

The mini-console connects directly to a television and runs Android games. The open-source system encourages developers to create games and peripherals based on the software. Development kits for Ouya were sent to developers at the end of last year.

Each console will come with one controller. The controller features traditional elements as well as a dedicated touchpad for touch controls. The controller for the next PlayStation is rumored to have similar features. Ouya is expected to ship more additional controllers than the company will ship consoles.

Several high-profile games developers and app makers have committed to Ouya. Square Enix will release Final Fantasy 3 as a launch title. Robert Bowling, who helped develop the Call of Duty, and his new studio will debut Human Element on the Android console. VEVO and iHeartRadio are some of the apps expected to be available at or near the system’s launch.

Every game on Ouya is expected to be free-to-play. However, many of the free games will merely be demo versions of the latest hit titles. Many other free-to-play games on the console are expected to use in-game transactions to earn funding.
