The upcoming Mojo Android-powered game console by Mad Catz is nearing its official retail launch and it looks like it will be a little more appealing when it finally does go on sale thanks to Mad Catz and Nvidia working together to bring Nvidia’s GameStream technology to the console. While this feature most likely won’t make it in time for the console’s launch, it is planned for it to arrive in an update shortly afterwards.
In an interview Mad Catz PR Director Alex Verrey said that both companies are working together to bring Nvidia’s GameStream technology to the Mojo console. This feature recently showed up in an OTA update for Nvidia’s portable gaming system Shield. GameStream allows players to stream PC games to their Shield device locally. The OTA update for the Shield is the first step towards integration with Nvidia’s GRID which is a full cloud-based game streaming platform similar to past services like OnLive.
This marks the first time that a 3rd party company and their product will be getting the GameStream technology. Interestingly enough Mad Catz is also looking at other services and the possibility of having them integrated into their console as well such as Steam.
The Mad Catz Mojo game console is slated for retail launch before the upcoming holiday season and will retail for around $249.
