Mad Catz is teaming up with Ouya to bring it to their micro gaming console M.O.J.O. The Android powered game console that is powered by Tegra from Mad Catz will be available for $199 come this spring.
This move is in an effort to expand the Ouya Everywhere concept. This is the first device to support Ouya games outside of the official Ouya game console. The upcoming console will support all the upcoming games for the Ouya platform as well as all the games already present in the market already, ready to be played.
The concept behind the MOJO was to make the Android micro console sphere a truly open platform where both AAA developers as well as comparatively smaller developers too can contribute. To that effect MOJO supports all the major distribution platforms on Android, including Ouya, Google Play, Amazon App Store, etc., thus freeing the android console gamers from being “locked inside a box”, as put forth by Julie Uhrman, the founder of the Ouya project.
“Up until now, the game console experience has been locked inside a box,” said Julie Uhrman, CEO and founder of OUYA. “Together with the hardware veterans at Mad Catz, we end that. Today’s announcement signifies the inception of a truly open platform where independent developers can bring their creations to the platforms where gamers actually play: everywhere.”
Darren Richardson, CEO & President of Mad Catz, thinks that with 680 games and 33,000 developers on board, the Ouya has a very strong potential for entertainment. Along with that he thinks that joining up with Mad Catz will surely go down as a milestone in making the Android micro console scene a truly open platform.
