Mad Catz M.O.J.O. Software Update Adds OUYA Everywhere Support, 4K Output, And Wider Play Store Access

The Mad Catz M.O.J.O. didn't exactly get a glowing review from us back in February, but bless its little heart, it's still trying. The latest official firmware update adds some significant features to the device, making its $199 retail price a little more palatable. The MOJO is now the first device to support OUYA Everywhere, which means that it gets access to the games on the proprietary OUYA store in addition to the built-in Google Play Store.

OUYA Introduces A $60-A-Year Subscription With Unlimited Access To (Some) Paid Games And (Some) In-App Purchases

If you could pay a flat fee for all-you-can-eat games on Android, would you?

OUYA owners can now purchase the $59.99 OUYA All-Access Pass from the website, which includes free access to "over 800" paid games and in-app purchases. OUYA claims this is an "over $2000 value," though a full list of the included apps and IAPs is not published.

Possible Amazon Game Controller Spotted In Brazil, Complete With Android Nav Buttons

Amazon has been expanding into just about every possible media sales segment in the last few years, with one notable exception: console-style video games. If a filing with the Agência Nacional de Telecomunicações (read: the Brazilian version of the FCC) can be believed, Amazon is looking to close that gap in its product lineup.

Mad Catz Becomes The First Ouya Everywhere Partner, Drops M.O.J.O. Price To $199.99

A few days ago the Ouya folks announced the Ouya Everywhere initiative and the company's intention to expand the platform beyond the one inspirational-but-somewhat-disappointing Android-powered gaming console it's put out so far.
