Mad Catz Begins Shipping Mojo Micro-Console

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.

    $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.
