Razer buys Android console-maker Ouya

Razer, who is best known for its gaming accessories, has been reported to have bought Ouya — maker of the $99 Android console.

Ouya started out as a successful project off Kickstarter. But although they haven’t received much response, they still tried to push it. Now, it seems like they figured they’d be doing better under new management as investment bank Mesa Global confirms that the deal was done, although no amount was disclosed and both parties still haven’t issued any press releases.


The bank’s role reportedly acted as a financial advisor to Ouya Inc towards the transaction with Razer.

Ouya has been concentrating on its software, while Razer has been non-stop on releasing new hardware. Together, we’re excited to see what they would bring to the table.
