Mad Catz has just dropped the price of its gaming console from $250 down to $200. The M.O.J.O. is one of the most powerful Android gaming consoles in the market today that’s being powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 4 T40S 1.8GHz Processor and 2GB of RAM. Aside from this $50 price reduction the company has also announced that it will be supporting the OUYA Everywhere initiative.
Yesterday we reported that OUYA has partnered with one device maker to bring the OUYA experience on a non-OUYA device. There was no mention then as to which device maker they have partnered with. Now we all know that it is Mad Catz.
Mad Catz announced on its website that “First off, we’re excited to announce that we’re working with our friends at OUYA to bring their ‘OUYA Everywhere’ initiative to M.O.J.O.! In case you’re not up to speed, this means that every single great game available on OUYA console will be coming to M.O.J.O. via a free app or over the air update!”
OUYA is a gaming platform that allows anyone to play Android games on a TV using a wireless controller. While it’s true that most of the games are designed for smartphone or tablets OUYA has made sure that all of the titles available in its store are optimized for playing on a larger screen and are compatible with non-touchscreen devices.
With OUYA Everywhere coming to the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. owners of the console will have access to the game library of OUYA aside from its Google Play store and Amazon Appstore access. The OUYA store has more than 600 titles most of which are exclusive.
Ouya CEO and founder Julie Uhrman said that “Up until now, the game console experience has been locked inside a box. 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.”
If you don’t have the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. and are planning to get one then now might be a good time to do it.
