The Matte Black OUYA is a limited edition console, with the only differences to the original being the color scheme, upgraded storage space by 8GB, and a slightly higher price tag- A $30 difference.

The Matte Black OUYA was released in Febuary 2014, following the White Christmas 16GB OUYA. As of late April 2014, this limited edition is no longer available on the shop, nor any official OUYA resellers.


The features of the Matte Black OUYA are identical to that of the original.

The OUYA features the Discover Store for applications and games designed specifically for the platform. The hardware design of the OUYA allows for easy opening, allowing easy access to modding and possible hardware addons, justifying the name "open and hackable" of which Julie Uhrman has called it.

Any OUYA console can be used as a devkit, and games/apps can be created on Windows, Mac, and Linux-based operating systems. All games are required to have some element of a free-to-play aspect, whether that involved being a completely free game, free trial, or purchasable upgrades, levels, or items.
