Mad Catz gets into the micro-console game

, | News

Mad Catz, manufacturer of gaming peripherals and accessory hardware, is launching its own Android gaming console. The M.O.J.O. micro-console enters the same crowded market as the Ouya, Nvidia Shield, Gamestick, and every other media device that ships with an Android operating system. Mad Catz aims to differentiate the M.O.J.O. by touting its open market (Amazon, Google Play, TegraZone, and other storefronts will be allowed) as well as the Tegra 4 1.8GHz mobile processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.

The wireless Bluetooth C.T.R.L.r controller is designed to work as a normal gamepad for the M.O.J.O. and can be used in “mouse mode” for on-screen navigation. You can also pair it to your mobile device to turn your phone into a super-micro-console.

The M.O.J.O. is $249.99 and can be preordered now. The micro-console will launch on December 10th. Maybe by then, Mad Catz will explain what M.O.J.O. stands for.
