OUYA

In case you forgot, someone got a bug up their butt a little ways back and decided to make Android Central one of the "1337" backers of the upcoming OYUA Android-based console gaming system. One of the perks of that slightly ridiculous(ly awesome) level of Kickerstarter backing is that we get to choose a username. OUYA just sent out an e-mail saying we'll need to choose around the end of the month, so it's time to get cracking.

But let's have some fun with it. Instead of us choosing some lame name like "JerryTheNeckBeard" or "AlexTheDobie," we're going to let one of you choose our OUYA username, contest-style. 

Here's how it'll work:

  • Leave your suggestion in this forum thread. We can have up to 16 characters. There are some 63,000 backers vying for the first batch of names, so longer may be better than shorter.
  • We'll go over the names and pick our favorite. We're the ones who have to live with it, after all. So if we don't like it, we won't pick it.
  • To the person whose username we choose, we'll preorder them an OUYA of their very own. And to help tide them over until next spring, when it will be released, we'll throw in a Nexus 7 tablet now.
  • We'll pick 10 other runners-up -- names we liked, but didn't win out -- to receive their very own Android Central T-shirts.
  • This one's open to everyone, everywhere.

We don't know exactly when we'll have to put in our request for a username, other than toward the end of the month, so we'll let this one ride until October 1, or when OUYA says it's time to poop or get off the pot -- whichever comes first.

Good luck, and let's see some great names!

Sorry, Phil. Looks like the people above me didn't get the memo.

Jezz_X says:

heh yeah people see competition and "post" and don't really read much further

Pretty much all the names I was going to pick were already taken anyway

"There are some 630,000 backers..."

Odd, the Kickstarter page says 63,416 backers.
