Mad Box Gaming Console Announced by Project Cars Developer

Mad Box Gaming Console Announced by Project Cars Developer

Ian Bell, CEO of Slightly Mad Studios has revealed that his company is developing their own games console. He emphasized that the Mad Box will be a standalone console and suggested that the new games it will support might benefit from the company's "completely free development engine".

Bell said the console will support VR headsets such as Oculus and HTC Vive, existing PC peripherals, fight sticks, and racing wheels.

Bell also stated that all these fascinating details about the console, but they will have a hard time competing for a proper price.

With 9/4 odds, the Saints are the odds-on favorites to win the Super Bowl, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs at 4/1. Behind the Chiefs in the AFC are the New England Patriots , who finished the season with the No. 2 seed at 11-5.

For years the gaming industry has focused largely around three dominant household console names: Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation and Nintendo "whatever they decide to call it". Bell says both old and new games are welcome on the Mad Box. Now, that Slightly Mad Studios CEO chose to release additional information about the gaming console such as that it will be stand alone and that it will support VR games at up to 120 frames per second! Slightly Mad Studios already has investors inquiring about providing the capital to bring the device to fruition, but no deals have been made. It'd be hard to pull off 4K, 120 FPS, and VR support in a modern machine while keeping it under the price point of a brand new home gaming console. Bell said that they now have the design of the Mad Box all specced out and are now in discussions with manufacturing partners. More competition is never a bad thing though, so assuming that the Mad Box actually makes it to shelves, it'll be interesting to see the effect it has on the console market. He doesn't have plans to pay developers incentives to create exclusives on the platform. There's a long way to go between announcement and release for the Mad Box, and during that time, and there's the potential for plenty to go wrong in that time.

If the investment is there, however - or comes in off the back of Ian Bell's teasing tweet - we could see a console come to market in the next few years, whether or not anyone buys it.
