Mad Catz console to compete against Ouya
There were a lot of people who are really excited when the Android-powered gaming console
turned up on Kickstarter
. The $99 device has seen several delays in its efforts to come to market, but fans are still clamoring for a small and cheap game console that puts Android games and applications on a big-screen TV in the living room.
Gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz is now talking up its own Android-powered game console called Project M.O.J.O. and the company says it will be the most powerful Android-powered game console out there. While all of the hardcore details aren't available at this time, the device is believed to use
NVIDIA Tegra 4 SOC
. That assumption is made from some things that Mad Catz CEO has made concerning the device.
Mad Catz CEO Darren Richardson said, "Like everything else we do, M.O.J.O. is all about performance."
M.O.J.O. is an android micro console configured to extract the maximum horsepower from an android device to deliver the best gaming experience. It’s basically a supercharged smartphone, with no screen, that plugs into your flatscreen TV and is designed to interact seamlessly with our GameSmart controllers, mice, keyboards and headsets; In fact the entire ecosystem of gaming products. We also want M.O.J.O. to be a truly open platform. People are already comfortable buying games from Google Play, Amazon, TegraZone or any other retailer of their choice. They play those games on their phones and tablets already, and with M.O.J.O., they will be able to play them in the living-room at no additional cost. The same approach applies to movies, music and any other digital media. Our focus is on products providing the best hardware configured for performance, not forcing people to buy content from us.
The game console will be unveiled at E3 next week. There is no indication of exactly how much the device will cost, but speculation is that the M.O.J.O. will come in at less than $150.

RE: Android "Consoles"

The only thing that I think could make this viable, is a gesture detection system like Kinect, etc. For example, apparently, some arcades now have giant versions of Fruit Ninja where you use your hands to swipe. There's no reason this wouldn't be a good idea for a home console and an array of party games similar to that. Especially, if the hardware were cheap and could play Android games you already purchased for your mobile. This would be perfect for the young folk.
