Mad Catz announces Android-powered M.O.J.O gaming console
Mad Catz announced at E3 this week that this holiday season will give way to a new Android-based gaming console. Called the M.O.J.O, it’s a gaming console that should find a home among the OUYA and NVIDIA Shield crowd.
“M.O.J.O. is basically a supercharged smart phone with no screen that plugs into your flat screen TV to bring the living room experience to mobile gaming. M.O.J.O. is designed to interact seamlessly with our GameSmart controllers, mice, keyboards and headsets, in fact, the entire eco-system of gaming peripherals,” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc.
The press release is very light on details, and there’s nary a hardware spec to share. Digging a bit, we found other sites reporting some of the following:
- 16GB of internal storage
- Two USB ports
Reading the tea leaves, we might infer a Google Play certified device that may (or may not) feature an NVIDIA processor. Given the arrival is expected “holiday 2013″, we are hoping for something in the Tegra 4 family. The M.O.J.O. will feature Mad Catz’s new C.T.R.L. controller which features both traditional and Bluetooth Smart (4.0) technologies.
Look for more details on pricing and availability as we get closer to the end of the year.
