Ouya's new console ships with the redesigned controller that Ouya quietly rolled out in the latter-half of 2013. It is supposed to have a more-textured thumbsticks, non-sticky action buttons, and tighter triggers - effectively eliminating any issues regarding "soft" tension and flimsy hardware. It also features a better Bluetooth connection and Wi-Fi performance.

You can buy the black matte Ouya starting today from Amazon or Ouya's website for $129.99. The original Ouya is still available for purchase, but it's quite a bit cheaper. It costs $99.99. Still, for just $30 more, you can opt for a sleeker look and more storage.
