Android Powered Game Console Announced by Mad Catz in December

/ 4 years ago

Mad Catz Interactive has started its claim in the microconsole market, with a release date and price for its M.O.J.O. console, an Android OS console that will release on December 10 and can now be pre-ordered for $250 ( £155 ).

If you’re wondering about that high price tag, it’s due to the device’s high-end hardware — the M.O.J.O. includes an Nvidia Tegra 4 T40S 1.8GHz Processor, 2GB of RAM, and HDMI out capabilities with full 1080p resolution.

Mad Catz is positioning its microconsole as a more hardcore way for players to bring their favorite mobile games to the living room TV, and one of its main selling points is that it’s totally open to developers — the Amazon AppStore and Google Play store will both be available directly through the console. Notably, you’re also able to plug a mouse into the console — or you can use the controller’s left analog stick to console a mouse pointer on the screen.

Although Mad Catz hasn’t yet talked in-depth about it, there is mention of the console being able to play PC games as well. All signs point to the same sort of technology found in the Nvidia Shield, such that the M.O.J.O. will be able to stream PC games directly from another PC device to your TV. There are, rather strangely, no solid details regarding this functionality.

    over priced. Ouya is $99 and does the exact same thing.

      It also has a Tegra 3 and 1 GB ram. Get your facts straight mister.

        Get your facts straight mister. So what if Ouya has Tegra 3 and 1 GB ram. It is still $150 cheaper to do exactly the same thing.

        • Trauma

          That’s like saying a £100 PC would do the same thing as a £1000 PC. It would. But the £1000 would do it far better. Just like how this would outperform an Ouya. So, get your facts straight mister.

            What? How can you compare that £100 vs £1000. That is not the same. I think you need to understand Android system on how they scale in platform. I’ve used both Ouya and Nvidia Shield, the difference is not that noticeable at all.

    If it was 150-199…
