At this year’s E3, Mad Catz Interactive Inc. unveiled its entry ticket into the game console manufacturing industry. Their micro-console, called MOJO was then expected to come out into the market in a couple of months.
Apparently, that stands true as Mad Catz have announced through a press release that come December 10, MOJO will be available in the market in limited quantities.
Mad Catz is an interactive entertainment product maker based in San Diego, California that has been manufacturing controllers, keyboards and mice etc. this will be their first initiation into the bigger market and more complex products.
MOJO is an android based mini console like GameStick and Ouya except that unlike Ouya it will be compatible with existing digital storefronts titles with the likes of Google Play.
“The M.O.J.O. Micro-Console for Android has attracted strong interest due to its high-performance hardware, open software platform and the ecosystem of accessories,” says Mad Catz CEO Darren Richardson who also believes that MOJO “brings core gaming experiences to the mobile platform.”
Well, all that is fine but what surprises me is that this is an android based console and the company’s first entry into the console market; but still they priced it at $250 – question mark. Just for reference, OUYA costs $99.
The console carries NVIDIA® Tegra®4 T40S 1.8GHz Processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, HDMI out capabilities with full 1080p resolution, Bluetooth, microSD™ Flash Slot with Support for SDXC™ Cards up to 128GB, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and the Android 4.2.2 operating system.
So, would you give it a place beside your TV or attach it to your phone? And yes, you can attach MOJO to your android phones as well.
