When most people think of the next generation of game consoles, they will probably imagine what the next Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo console will be. Now, CEO of the studio who did Project CARS, you want to add another console for the vision of the next genes: Mad Box.
Little Mad Studios founder and chief executive Ian Bell has spoken up on the next generation console on social media over the past week and promised to create the "most powerful console ever built". Bell shooter for a console that plays games in 4K and can play virtual reality games at 1
On Friday, the Bell syringe took a step further by revealing the alleged console's design for the first time – PC-ike tower with aggressive lighting and a case bent in an iconic M shape.
Yes, it's a very high design – a Bell himself says that is likely to be toned down before its release . It should also be much smaller than it looks. Bell says it will even have a switch to distribute a handle designed to make it easy to carry.
Bell would not say when he expects the console to be available, or the final specification – but is certain that it does not need crowdfunding. "We have several investors already offering the necessary funding for us to see the product completed," he told Variety earlier this week. The Mad Box also doesn't want exclusive titles, says Bell; The platform will be open to everyone – to the point that developers will be given a full engine to develop games for free.
"We think the industry is a bit too much of a monopoly or a micro-oligopoly," Bell told Variety. "We believe the competition is healthy and we have the necessary hardware contacts to bring something epic to pursue based on our designs."
