The $99 hackable Android-based gaming console OUYA is fulfilling its orders for Kickstarter backers by sending the first units out to developers. Backers began receiving their OUYA consoles as early as last Friday.
According to the OUYA blog, 1,200 consoles have been sent out to developers. While these aren't the final run of the OUYA that consumers will receive, they have enough pieces to get developers started making games for the console. Developers receive a rooted console, along with two transparent, prototype controllers specially designed for the console.

While questions were raised about whether the OUYA would be able to deliver on time to its Kickstarter backers, releasing the developer unit and API by the end of December met the promise listed on the Kickstarter page.
Game creator Dave Schrader gave Mashable pictures of his developer unit that he received Monday. You can check them out in the gallery above.
