Mad Box looks like a PC, still sounds like a bad idea

Mad Box looks like a PC, still sounds like a bad idea

The Slightly Mad CEO has also confirmed the console has a "one press deployable carry handle, between the 'm's", it weighs "very little", and it will "talk to other Mad Boxes without cables".

With the curiosity aroused, Bell padded all that as well when he revealed concept images via his fairly new Twitter account.

As Slash Gear pointed out, the outer mold of the Mad Box Console comes in a unique mold and different from the ones offered by Microsoft and Sony. Bell notes that the internals are purposefully blurred because they are still in talks with hardware vendors. Some more fine-tuning is required or you'd be happy to own a console that looks like that? Dubbed the Mad Box, Bell said that it will be the most powerful console ever made and will be priced competitively with the next Xbox and PlayStation.

This new console will "support most major VR headsets and those upcoming in the specs will be equivalent to a 'very fast PC 2 years from now'". Although the specifications haven't been revealed, Mad Dog is targeting a whopping 180fps at 4K, which translates into 90fps per eye in VR. And even if it was released, can the market sustain four consoles? Is the Mad Box something you'd want to prominently display in your home?

The renders Bell shared show off a console that is quite unlike the boxes we're used to seeing from Microsoft and Sony. Apparently, the company has no plans to pay developers on creating exclusively, something that Bell said is not aligned with the company's philosophy.

Slightly Mad, the devs behind Project Cars, are making a next-gen console.and we're still incredibly skeptical about the whole thing. Investors have approached Bell about the ambitious project, but nothing has been secured for now.
