Mad Catz's Android console "Mojo" now available Gaming accessory maker Mad Catz has launched their entry to the Android game console market, the "Mojo" box.
The Mojo is available for sale now after first being unveiled at the E3 expo in June.

Running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the device allows you to play your Android games on your big screen TV, as well as access your apps and media you may already have on your phone or tablet. There is full access to the million-app strong Google Play Store.

Powering the Mojo is a Tegra 4 processor, 16GB internal storage, a microSD slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The most important part of the console is its gamepad, which Mad Catz explains:

To maximize control over controller-compatible games and apps, M.O.J.O. comes with a GameSmart C.T.R.L.R Mobile Gamepad which mobilizes gameplay without forfeiting the familiarity of the console-style controller you know and love. C.T.R.L.R offers three different gaming modes and enhanced portability for where ever the game may take you. Here are some cool features of the C.T.R.L.R Mobile Gamepad:

BLUETOOTH SMART COMPATIBLE Play with lower latency and extended battery life and connect to other Bluetooth devices

MEDIA BUTTONS C.T.R.L.R functions as a remote to control volume and playback of video and music MOUSE MODE Flip a switch to turn C.T.R.L.R into a mouse and use the left analog stick to control the onscreen cursor. Ideal for touchscreen interaction!

TRAVEL CLIP Attach your phone or smart device to the C.T.R.L.R and game anywhere.


The console costs $250 with the included controller, and supplies are running out quickly.

Yeah, I have to admit the OUYA's coming along.

With all the updates and all...


I'm using it as my media player now, fine with 1080p... as long as it's PCM audio.

honestly i have owned madcatz products and im not sure this will be any good.
madcatz xbox controllers were rubbsih 1/4 of the price of official controllers and broke after a week or 2, the madcatz steering wheel for ps1 was fine.
not sure if any of the mad catz products are any good anymore as i only use official products.

sounds overpriced. i would say that any android gaming system is good news for independent game developers, though.

Yes, with that pricing better save that 250 for a PS4 ;)
