27 per cent of Ouya owners have bought a game for the Android console, meaning almost three quarters of the userbase is yet to pay for a title, reports The Verge.
However, Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman is pleased with how things have panned out over the system's first month.
"Monetization on Ouya is so far better than we expected," Uhrman told The Verge. "It takes time to build what traditional consoles have had decades to build. But really, I think it's too early to draw such broad sweeping statements about how a platform is going to perform."
Uhrman also pointed to an apparently impressive demo to full game conversion rate of eight per cent for 13 of Ouya's 20 top grossing titles.
"I think there are a lot of social and mobile app developers that would kill for an 8 per cent attach rate on a platform that's 30 days old," Uhrman said. "These numbers will grow as more gamers pick up consoles, and as we attract more developers, and I believe that by the end of the year, we'll see a few developers telling us they've made more than a million dollars on Ouya."
A million dollars seems like a pipe dream at this moment in time, given that top-grossing game TowerFall, from by Matt Thorson, has only made $21,000 to date.
