Earlier this year, Mad Catz announced that they would be entering the console market with a device of their own, which was to be launched before the end of the year. Furthermore, the gaming peripherals manufacturer also stated that the console would be Android-based, much the same as with the crowd-funded Ouya. Today, Mad Catz has officially announced the M.O.J.O. console.

The Android-based M.O.J.O. will be priced at $249.99, quite a bit more than the Ouya. What can we expect from the extra $150 or so? To start with, the M.O.J.O. will be much better specced, which includes NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 1.8GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage, compared to the Ouya with a Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. While the console is not geared at competing with Microsoft and Sony’s big-name releases this year, they do go head-to-head with a few other miniature consoles in the Ouya, NVIDIA’s Project Shield, and the GameStick.

In terms of its design, Mad Catz has kept it relatively simple, with a minimalistic finish, interrupted only by the blue LED light and Mad Catz logo on the front and top of the unit. At the back you’ll find ports for a USB 2.0, USB 3.0, microSD card, Ethernet cable, HDMI, 3.5mm audio and power source. The console will support Mad Catz’s GameSmart platform, which essentially connects to any other Bluetooth-enabled controllers.

The announcement also included a release date for the console, which has been set for the 10th December 2013; right on queue for the festive season, although in limited quantities.
