: Muffi Ghadiali, one of the founding members of the Ouya team, and a key factor in the success of the microconsole's Kickstarter campaign, has now left the company.
In a statement to TechCrunch, the Ouya team confirmed
the departure of Ghadiali, stating that "Ouya is an ever-changing business, and as we continue to grow our needs shift accordingly."
TechCrunch suggests that it was Ghadiali's decision to leave the company. The product manager led numerous teams behind the Ouya hardware, while singlehandedly managing all hardware development.
An Ouya PR rep reached out to clarify: "Muffi wasn't a founder, he was amongst the first hires."
