Mad Catz's Android-based console MOJO is now available for pre-order. The system's price is now set at $249.99, and is expected to ship on December 10.

Announced in June, MOJO separates itself from the likes of systems such as Ouya by allowing players to access games on the Google Play store. MOJO runs a stock version of Android and carries 16 GB of storage with a micro SD support for expandable storage up to 128 GB as well as a 1.8 GHz Tegra 4 processor. The console comes with a Mad Catz Ctrl-R bluetooth-enabled game pad, which includes a physical switch to change between three modes: Android controller, PC controller and mouse input.
