This week video game accessories maker Mad Catz revealed more details on its entry into the micro-console space, including a price point that is as much as current generation consoles. The high price for its Android-based M.O.J.O. console is due to what's inside the case, according to Mad Catz. The system will feature an Nvidia Tegra 4 T40S 1.8GHz Processor, 2GB of RAM, and HDMI out capabilities with full 1080p resolution. The system will also not lock owners into using a customized app store.
The website for the console also mentioned the possibility of the system being used to play or stream PC game content to your TV, but that section of the site was mysteriously scrubbed shortly after this week's announcement, according to Gamasutra.
So how much is Mad Catz charging for the M.O.J.O when it launches on December 10 in North America and Europe? A whopping $250. That's around the same price for a brand new PlayStation Vita or a new PS3. M.O.J.O's high price point is similar to NVIDIA's SHIELD hand-held micro console, and much more expensive than the Ouya or the GameStick.
We'll have more on this micro-console as information becomes available.
