Peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz is getting into the Android-based console market with Project M.O.J.O., a micro-console that will be shown off for the first time at E3 next week, the company announced in an investor release yesterday.
Details are scant at this point, but Project M.O.J.O. is "configured to harness the maximum gaming horsepower from an Android device," said Mad Catz president and CEO Darren Richardson. He added that the device is the "keystone product" in the company's GameSmart initiative, which consists of gaming accessories for smartphones and mobile devices that are designed to work together wirelessly across platforms.
Project M.O.J.O. features the hardware of a high-end smartphone and plugs into a television, reports Engadget. With the micro-console, Mad Catz is entering the same league as PlayJam's GameStick and the Ouya console, both of which are sub-$100 devices designed to bring mobile gaming into the living room.
