That little Tegra 4 micro-console that I saw at E3 last year finally has OUYA onboard. The Mad Catz M.O.J.O. now has the OUYA storefront so you'll have access to plenty of games and applications that were designed with the OUYA in mind.
You don't have to use the OUYA service, of course as the M.O.J.O. also has access to the Google Play store. Either way, now you have more options for content with Mad Catz's Android console.
If you have a 4K TV, then the M.O.J.O. will also be able to output in that resolution as well. This is great news for those that use the micro-console as a media player.
The Mad Catz M.O.J.O. is available for $199.
