Newsbrief: The Kickstarter crowd-funding project for the Ouya, an upcoming open, accessible Android OS games console, ended today with nearly $8.6 million collected in pledges.

The proposed console was detailed last month, with the team looking for $950,000 through Kickstarter funding. The project quickly surged past that total, with around 60,000 people pre-ordering the hardware.

The Ouya has received plenty of support from developers since it was first detailed. Robert Bowling, previously Infinity Ward's Call of Duty creative strategist, is bringing the first game from his new company Robotoki to the Android OS console, while OnLive and Square Enix have both also shown their support for the console.
