OUYA Everywhere partners with Mad Catz, bringing all OUYA games to the M.O.J.O.

Mad Catz MOJO

Android gaming consoles were really hyped up for a while, but then they completely failed to take off. The OUYA was the first to get seriously popular, but with an outdated Tegra 3 processor, a lackluster game catalog and no access to Google Play, it didn’t do as well as we thought that it would. Another option is the Mad Catz M.O.J.O., which features the Play Store and Tegra 4 hardware. Unfortunately, its combination of stock Android, a $250 price tag and difficult-to-find games made it unbuyable from the start. And that name…

Thanks to the OUYA Everywhere program, those two consoles can now combine their strengths to form a superior product. OUYA and Mad Catz have teamed up to bring the OUYA experience to the M.O.J.O., porting its entire catalog of 680 controller-optimized games to the new console. With a Tegra 4 processor, this new OUYA-powered console has the opportunity to be what we wanted in the first place.

On top of that, Mad Catz has decided to drop the price of of the M.O.J.O. by $50, making it a more affordable (but still high) $200. If someone were really interested in owning an Android-powered video game console, this will probably be a decent option thanks to its new selection of games. Will this move save Android-based consoles, or is it just another attempt to take over a market that doesn’t need to exist? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
