With one week left on the whirlwind Kickstarter funding drive, the creators of promised developer-liberating OUYA console have added a couple of new announcements.

Celebrating the end of the campaign, prospective backers can now opt for a limited edition brown OUYA console, draped in an earthy brushed-metal casing. As a limited run, the brown version comes at a $140 entry cost, $41 dearer than the $99 original, reportedly to account for lower production volumes as it will not be available after the Kickstarter wraps up.

We're not sure why they went with brown of all colours, but the announcement update explains that the hue was selected by their star designer Yves Behar himself.

Secondly, the team has responded to the demands of colour-blind players and added new markings to the console's controller buttons, labelling them O,U,Y and A.

Lastly, they've also announced that the music video distributor VEVO will be riding the OUYA bus at launch, who will be offering some manner of interface to their HD music video library. It's not a terribly exciting revelation as much of VEVO's content can be accessed just fine via their Youtube channel, it is signficant in that it represents an official acknowledgement of the console's utilty as a media player in addition to a cheap games console.

OUYA is expected to commence delivery of the first consoles to backers in March 2013.

I'm pretty excited about getting one to be honest, even if the gaming part of it isn't very exciting then it'll be a brilliant little XBMC device.
