Mad Catz has announced that it will launch an Android gaming system at next week’s E3 2013. The peripherals manufacturer has confirmed plans to unveil a “micro-console” running the Google operating system, dubbed Project M.O.J.O., at the Los Angeles expo.
Mad Catz CEO Darren Richardson compares the device to a supercharged smartphone without a display that hooks up to a flatscreen television screen.
“At next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles we will unveil the keystone product in our GameSmart initiative, Project M.O.J.O., an Android micro-console configured to harness the maximum gaming horsepower from an Android device,” he said during an earnings call.
“The Project M.O.J.O. Android micro-console is being designed to interact seamlessly with our GameSmart controllers, mice, keyboards and headsets.
“With our long history in the gaming industry, Mad Catz has the technical capability, product breadth, global distribution, and developer and publisher relationships that uniquely position our company to embark on this ambitious initiative.”
Project M.O.J.O. will sit alongside Mad Catz’s GameSmart line of products, which encompasses various controllers and peripherals.
The system is also expected to be related to the recent partnership the firm struck up with graphics card-maker NVIDIA.
Hardware specs for Project M.O.J.O. are yet to be announced. We will be at E3 2013 Next Week seeing what Project M.O.J.O is…. Watch this Space very soon.
