E3: Ouya Booth To Be Set Up In Parking Lot, Open To Public

Still a bit early for E3 news, but an odd announcement from OUYA garners early attention.

Source: Press Release

Ouya, the new $99 Android based game system, plans to set up outside of E3 to show off their system and games to the public and they've also invited game developers to join them and demo their Ouya games. 

They will be set up across from the Convention Center's South Hall (601 W. Pico Blvd.) and will be there for all three days of the event.  Developers, of which 10,000 of them have registered to create game for Ouya so far, have until May 28th to submit a form to Ouya if they wish to show their game off at the Ouya 'booth'.

Here's the Press Release:

Join us @ E3 2013!
You're one e-form away from demoing your game on OUYA at E3.


Thanks so much for the great response to our call for assets last week. Watching your games come to life on OUYA inspires us. And we can't wait to tell the world about it!

For E3 this year, OUYA will be outside the convention hall (shocker -- we're roaming outside of the pack!). We'll be sharing our games with the public -- NOT just the pass holders. Though we're still hammering out the details, here's what we know today:

First and foremost -- we want YOU to be OUYA's E3 presence. E3 is about unique games, cool content and the people behind such projects. Our goal is to provide the resources necessary to allow you to showcase your amazing work on OUYA!

E3 2013 dates are Tuesday, 6/11 to Thursday, 6/13

Our location is a parking lot directly across from the Convention Center's South Hall (address is 601 W. Pico Blvd.)

OUYA will be present for all three days of the event, and we'll provide everything you'll need to put on a killer game demo. OUYA console...check, controllers...check, TV...check. We'll also make sure that you're fed and have plenty to drink while you're onsite because hydration and nutrition are key. :)

You'll be able to demo your games to media, E3 attendees and random people on the street who want to see what all the buzz is about. We're going all out to ensure we get the best equipment, and we're also engineering it with the elements of an outside location in mind. We're confident this will turn out to be an awesome event that you and your teams will be proud of!

OUYA's E3 location will be 100 percent open to the public -- no credentials required! Invite friends, family -- hell, invite anyone 'cuz they're all welcome!

Essentially, we'll handle the details. You just need to get to Los Angeles.

We understand you may still have questions on stuff not addressed above (details will evolve in real time over the next couple weeks).

In the meantime, if you're interested in participating in OUYA's 2013 event, signing up is easy:
Complete the form (same as the one linked above) and click SUBMIT.
Once we've collected everyone's submissions (remember, deadline is May 28th!), OUYA will contact you directly -- we'll do our best to confirm with everyone by May 31st -- to lockdown your scheduled spot.
That's it, told you it was simple.
Look forward to seeing you @ E3!
