    For those who are unaware Android is a Google-based operating system that is distantly related to Linux. Over the last few years it gained enough momentum to overtake the mobile phone and tablet markets, as with all such operating systems "apps" were the order of the day and as everybody plays some form of game there were many games made for the platform. This level of in-built support and general freedom proved too tempting to many a maker of devices and several have now attempted to make a box to sit under TVs. Mad Catz, long time manufacturer of gaming grade equipment and accessories, are trying their hand at making an Android-based console. They are not the first to do this, but unlike the Ouya they are not locking it down on their end (Google Play and Amazon are said to be compatible); it is not made by a group of hopefuls that are new to the business world and they are not a fly-by-night Chinese clone factory either. As the title says it goes by the name M.O.J.O..

    The initial unveiling happened at this year's E3 but this announcement is the big one where dates, prices, and specs have been provided.

    Price: $249.99
    Date: December 10th

    Specs
    Nvidia's 1.8GHz Tegra 4 processor
    2GB of RAM
    16GB of internal storage with microSD card support,
    HDMI-out
    Wi-Fi
    Bluetooth connectivity
    Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

    I like the specs but I'm more than happy with my OUYA right now. I can't really see any Android games needing 2 GB of ram until closer to the Tegra 5 release. Also, the $249.99 price really sucks when you can get a 8GB Wii U at the same price or a 4GB 360 for cheaper. I think Mad Catz should have aimed for the $149.99 price.

    It's so cute to see all the evolution of 5th world gaming--from Tiger electronics, to atari joysticks, to everybody's "other" console.

    its a powerhouse that is for sure, could put my original xbox into retirement especially if installed with xbmc, only downfall is the price, way too expensive for what it is.

    I cant wait to see how the Micro Console war will turn out between OUYA, GameStick, M.O.J.O. and Amazon's rumored FireTube.

    Android runs on the Linux kernel. It's the heart of the system.
    How is this distantly related?

    About the device itself: Most of the yes. Android 4.2.2 is a letdown, though; there is currently no Wiimote support on Android 4.2+.

    OH NO NOT ANOTHER ONE!!!

    No, I didn't know about that announcement. There were a couple other, slightly larger, companies who were busy revealing consoles. Or, for that matter, games. ;)


    But seriously: I'm amazed they even left the design table. Do they really think they can stand toe to toe with microsoft, sony and especially (because in the same price segment) nintendo? Without any chance of an exclusive game, no less! I'd say it's brave. Downright suicidal, yes...but also brave.

    (Christ...where's that thread about the impending 2nd video game crash? I'm sure someone mentioned there that there aren't enough consoles this time for a similar scenario. That should have been "not YET").

    Mad Catz, making shitty products since 1989. Nope. Not getting this. Are these companies retarded? I mean, for crap's sake why in the black hell do we need another POS Android "console" when we already have the other POSes out there?

    NOPE. Hate their products, hate android-based consoles, rather get a smartphone. :creep: Only good these "consoles" are good for are emulators, I can use those on my PC and Wii U.
