Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

December 16, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Mad Catz has begun selling its $249.99 Mojo Android video game micro console, though we are still unsure if the device actually supports PC-to-HDTV streaming. On its site dedicated to the console, the company announced that it has begun shipping to retail outlets nationwide. The micro-console runs a generic version of the Android 4.2.2 Jellybean operating system and allows you to play your Android games, apps, and media on your TV screen using a controller.

One of the features that Mad Catz is heavily highlighting is the fact that it doesn't use a walled garden approach to buying games on its system, unlike other Android devices like the Ouya or even Kindle Fire; you can go to Google Play and use any app that supports the OS.

On the hardware end of things, the Mojo is powered by a Tegra 4 processor, features 16GB of built-in storage that is expandable using extra microSD cards, and features integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. It also comes with a controller and support for other USB peripherals...

Check your favorite retailer to see if it's in stock, or visit the system's official site.

That seems pretty expensive for a console just to run android games.

Re: Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

Considering I got a device to do that for only 104 dollars, and in many cases you can get them even less.

Re: Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

At $250 I am not sure who they are targeting. It is pretty easy to justify $100 for a micro-console, but not $250 when there are pretty comparably priced major consoles.

Re: Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

$250 gets you a Shield (without discounts)... I agree. not sure who/what they are marketing toward.  The shield uses the same processor, and includes a screen, along with having PC-streaming features.

And while the Ouya doesn't have a 'walled' marketplace, you can install any APK from any device (controller support might be iffy).  The bigger issue here is that the Ouya is 1gen older.

Re: Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

I assume you are referring to the processor when you say "1gen older". Other wise, that statement doesn't make sense. 

That said, the price of the Mojo is exactly why Ouya went with the Tegra 3.
