Tegra-powered OUYA and Mad Catz M.O.J.O. Micro-Consoles Team Up

By John Gaudiosi (gamerlive.tv) - Mon, Mar 24, 2014

As part of OUYA Everywhere, Mad Catz is bringing OUYA to its M.O.J.O. micro-console for Android, which will now retail for $200. This is the first device to support OUYA games. OUYA on M.O.J.O. will debut this spring with all existing and upcoming OUYA content available on the Mad Catz micro-console.

"Up until now, the game console experience has been locked inside a box,” said Julie Uhrman, CEO and founder of OUYA. “Together with the hardware veterans at Mad Catz, we end that. Today’s announcement signifies the inception of a truly open platform where independent developers can bring their creations to the platforms where gamers actually play: everywhere."

“With more than 680 games and 33,000 developers signed up, OUYA features an impressive catalogue of content from AAA developers and independent publishers, all of which are designed to replicate the core gaming experience, taking advantage of the TV and controller,” said Darren Richardson, the President and CEO of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “This agreement with OUYA encapsulates our vision of an open software platform powered by M.O.J.O.’s high-performance hardware, and supported by the entire ecosystem of GameSmart™ gaming accessories. We believe today’s announcements will widen the appeal of M.O.J.O. introducing it to a greater number of passionate gamers.”

OUYA is a new kind of game platform that enables any creator to publish a game for the TV. Launched with the OUYA game console in 2013, OUYA has hundreds of games from established AAA developers to emerging game artists. The OUYA also has plenty of entertainment content in 1080p HD quality. OUYA, built on an accessible and open platform, was envisioned by founder and CEO Julie Uhrman. The OUYA console was beautifully designed by award-winning designer Yves Behar.
