US Ouya sales "relatively light for a new console"; Exclusive title TowerFall moves to PC

Kickstarter funded Android console Ouya’s first month on sale in the US has been given a lukewarm assessment by sales tracker NPD.

"Retail sales for Ouya (not counting direct sales through ouya.tv) and were relatively light for a new console," NPD analyst Liam Callahan said, as reported by Joystiq.

"This may be due to the lack of a major marquee title driving consumers to seek out the console, low awareness due to Ouya being a new brand, or low inventory volume due to manufacturing constraints."

It has also been revealed that the until now Ouya exclusive title TowerFall is making the jump to PC although creator Matt Thorson says that this is not due to low sales on the Android platform, stating: Ouya version is doing great! Just want to expand :)”
