Sightly Mad Studios Developing a Console to Compete With Xbox and PlayStation
Slightly Mad Studios known for their work on the Project Cars series has recently revealed their next project, and it's not Project Cars 3. What it is, is a standalone console that aims to compete with both PlayStation and Xbox brand. The Mad Box according to Ian Bell CEO of Slightly Mad Studios in his email to Variety is going to be "the most powerful console ever built." He also mentioned that the console will support VR games at 120 fps and will have its own engine which will be distributed to developers for free. 
 
Mad Box according to Bell is expected to ship three years from now, so it may take a while before we can get a sneak peek on the design of the console. Nevertheless, it will be a "worldwide console" which could probably mean that there won't be any region restrictions when it comes to games, even better is that Slightly Mad Studios is not planning to cash in immediately on the console, in fact, they are even planning to "cut prices massively." With that said, its great to know that we will soon be expecting another console that will somehow balance out the competition. Stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
