Ouya gets double the storage and a 'refined' controller

A new version of the Ouya, the diminutive Android-powered console that rose to fame in 2012 on Kickstarter, is now available with 16 GB of storage and a "refined version" of its controller.

According to the device's creators, the controller's new Bluetooth configuration offers "better buttons" and "faster response." The new, matte black console also sports the latest Ouya firmware and "boosted wi-fi connectivity."

The new version retails for $129.99 though Amazon in Canada and the U.S. and on Ouya's official site. The original 8 GB version will remain available for purchase.
