Ouya 2.0 releasing sometime in 2014, improved controllers in the works

Ouya founder and CEO Julie Uhrman has said to expect "Ouya 2.0" and an updated controller to launch sometime next year.

Speaking with Polygon, Uhrman said the date hasn't been finalized just yet nor has the firm determined "what exactly we want that to be."

"The software is constantly iterating because we want to make it constantly better," she said. "We don't want to wait six months and then go boom here are all these new features and functionality For the hardware, we are looking at different chips.

"We are looking at what type of performance we want."

The updated controller will be an improved version based on user feedback. The triggers, thumbsticks and the feel of the controller have all been tweaked.

"Part of that is taking that feedback, iterating that software, fixing the triggers, fixing the thumbsticks and if that doesn't work, we'll iterate it again and if we decide that's not the right path, we'll change it," she said. "I think that's one thing that differentiates us. We don't have this firm path we're going to stay on come hell or high water. We take the feedback from gamers, from developers and we iterate and we change. When it's not working we say so."

Uhrman said the company hasn't made a decision whether Ouya 2.0 and its improved controllers will replace the current model or if the two will co-exist in market.
