With the looming battle over which of the huge game titans will win the next console war, Mad Catz, formerly a company that was known mainly for creating inexpensive accessories, has placed its flag into the ground to claim its section of captured hill. Today we explore the reasons why the M.O.J.O. Android Game Console could be a better choice for you over Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Reason One: Price
At $249.99, it’s already a hundred and fifty bucks less than PS4. Often times in next generation console wars, consumers are concerned with price over system specs. Traditionally this has been the case for most game system struggles for supremacy, with Gameboy crushing all of its back-lit competitors when Nintendo lowered its price. Wii as well has kept its console affordable, allowing over 100 million households worldwide to have one. At $249.99 for the M.O.J.O., you could save plenty of hard-earned cash while at the same time, afford to get an extra controller.
Reason Two: Games
With android controlling nearly 80% of the market share, nearly everyone has or has had an android phone. With M.O.J.O. having the ability to connect to the Google Play marketplace, this not only means you have instant access to thousands of games ready to download and play, but you can also connect to your current or past Google profile, allowing you to re-download any games you’ve already paid for in the past.

Reason Three: PC Games on your HDTV
Engaget recently reported that M.O.J.O will allow users to stream their PC games through a patch that will be available shortly after launch. Very little info has been revealed about this so far, although Mad Catz did confirm this with Engadget.

Reason Four: Portability
Many hardcore gamers who want to go hang out with friends and show off their new console have to pack up and lug around a heavy system box, stacks of games and other peripherals they can manage to stuff into their backpacks. Not with M.O.J.O. With the unit itself measuring only 130mm x 114mm x 50mm and each controller only 150mm x 110mm x 50mm, you won’t be breaking your back to take your new gaming machine anywhere you want. That, and forget taking games. With a micro-SD card slot, you’ll have all your games downloaded onto one thumbnail-sized memory card.
Reason Five: Powerful Gaming without the Sacrifice
With a 1.8GHz Tegra 4 T4OS processor and 2 gigs of RAM, you’re already getting a machine that is comparable to Microsoft’s new Surface 2 Tablet – for $200.00 cheaper. You’ll be able to play high-quality android games at the highest visual settings and enjoy games that look as nice as its more expensive rivals.
Here is a quick break-down of the specifications for the M.O.J.O. from Mad Catz:
• Nvidia Tegra 4 T40S 1.8GHz processor
• 2GB RAM
• 16GB Internal Storage
• 2 x USB ports, one 2.0, one 3.0
• 1 x HDMI out (Supports 720p and 1080p resolutions)
• 1 x 100 Mbit Ethernet socket
• 1 x 3.5mm headphone jack
• Micro SD flash slot supporting SDXC format SD cards (at least 128GB support)
• Wi-Fi support

With all of these things stacking up against its next-gen opponents, the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. might just be the next choice for you and your household. Mad Catz has come a long way since it first began making video game related products for third-party companies. M.O.J.O. could be the start of an android gaming revolution that launches Mad Catz up the rankings in a new generation of console-quality gaming.
