Ouya games coming to other devices, starting with Mad Catz’s M.O.J.O.
Soon you’ll be able to play Ouya games on other devices, starting with M.O.J.O., now $50 cheaper.
Ouya and Mad Catz have announced an agreement to bring Ouya to M.O.J.O., Mad Catz’s own microconsole. The price of the M.O.J.O. is also being reduced from $250 to $200.
Earlier this week, Ouya announced its Ouya Everywhere initiative, which aims to bring Ouya to set-top boxes, smart TVs, and other devices besides its dedicated $99 microconsole, which was successfully Kickstarted in 2012.
“Up until now, the game console experience has been locked inside a box,” CEO and founder of Ouya Julie Uhrman said in a press release. “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.”
In January, Ouya announced a revision of its first console, with an overhauled controller, improved Wi-Fi, and 16GB of storage--double that of the original model's 8GB. The M.O.J.O., by comparison, features a Nvidia Tegra 4 T40S 1.8GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB RAM, Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) OS, and WiFi b/g/n support.
Ouya said it is staying in the hardware business, and that it will continue making a new Ouya model every year.
While Ouya has made mistakes, it also has some great games, like TowerFall, which has since made its way to PlayStation 4 and PC. Ouya Everywhere should make it easier to access such games in the future.
Ouya on M.O.J.O. is expected to debut later this spring with all existing and upcoming Ouya content available on the Mad Catz microconsole.
