Mad Catz MOJO Might Use NVIDIA GameStream technology

By -

A few months back it was announced that Mad Catz MOJO will get a PC streaming feature, soon after its 10th December launch date. Alex Verrey, Mad Catz’ Global PR Director, has confirmed that they are in talks with Nvidia to bring its GameStream technology to their micro, Android based console. Here’s the statement made by Alex Varrey:

We’re talking to NVIDIA and we hope to enable GameStream soon after the launch of the console.

GameStream is a technology that Nvidia introduced in their handheld device, named Nivdia Shield. It allows the players to stream their favorite PC games to a TV using the Shield’s HDMI out port. The games can also be streamed on the 5 inch display of the hand held device itself. ValVe is also in the talks with Nvidia, to use this technology in their upcoming Steam Machines. If the deal is finalized, it will be the first time that GameStream will be used in a third party device.

MOJO is a micro, Android based, gaming console being introduced by Mad Catz. The company is better known for its amazing gaming accessories, that it develops for various platforms. The console will be a direct competition for Ouya, which is also an Android based gaming system. In terms of specification, MOJO is a much capable machine compared to Ouya. But it has to be mentioned that MOJO is almost double the price of Ouya. Although, nothing can be said how well it performs until the console is released next month for a price tag of $249.99.
