The team still wants a little something to end the last week of fundraising with a bang. It just unveiled a limited edition brown, brushed metal version of the console with a controller to match; all it takes is a $140 pledge during the final push to August 9th and you've got the Yves Behar (http://www.engadget.com/tag/YvesBehar/)-chosen color for yourself. The special run should arrive as part of the wider March 2013 launch. If the original silver hue will do just nicely, thank you very much, OUYA has struck another content deal (http://www.engadget.com/2012/07/27/ouya-to-get-onlive-gameplay-at-launch-consoles-full-controller/) and will launch Vevo's (http://www.engadget.com/tag/Vevo/) music video hub side-by-side with the console. Click past the break for a peek at the controller, and consider a pledge on Kickstarter if you just can't stand the thought of having the same console as everyone else.
