OnLive and Mad Catz Bring AAA Games to Big Screens With the M.O.J.O. Micro-Console For Android

New Enhanced OnLive Android App Delivers the Latest High-End Games on M.O.J.O.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/14 -- OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, and Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. ("Mad Catz") (NYSE MKT: MCZ) (TSX: MCZ), today announced completing joint development to optimize OnLive's Android™ app for the Mad Catz® M.O.J.O.™ micro-console for Android.

Using the updated OnLive Android app (available to download free from the Google Play store), the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. micro-console for Android can stream PC games from OnLive's high-end gaming optimized servers, enabling players on this small-but-powerful micro-console to have access to over 250 AAA games from OnLive's PlayPack™ game service bundle, as well as to their own game libraries using OnLive's new CloudLift™ service.

The OnLive Android app is fully customized for use with M.O.J.O. and the Mad Catz C.T.R.L. Mobile Gamepad, both key products in the Mad Catz GameSmart™ range of mobile hardware. Bandwidth caps, previously fixed for use on mobile Android devices, are now user-defined and enable 720p60 resolution when connected to an HD TV or monitor.

"We designed M.O.J.O. to a high specification, as we conceived the platform to grow and evolve, encompassing new features and services over time" said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz, "With the new generation of Cloud Gaming that OnLive heralds, gamers can now play AAA and PC Steam-purchased games in high-definition through their M.O.J.O. With our dedicated C.T.R.L.R, we can move the high-end gaming experience away from the desktop PC and into the living room."

"One of our best features is that OnLive brings big games to small devices," said Rick Sanchez, VP of Product and Marketing at OnLive. "We want to be everywhere the gamer wants to play their games, and M.O.J.O. from Mad Catz is a perfect fit in every respect. As a micro-console powered by Android, it's powerful beyond its size, and now by installing the optimized OnLive Android app, users have access to the latest AAA games from publishers like Codemasters, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Gaijin Entertainment, Kalypso, Paradox, and Warner Bros."

Details of the games available to play using CloudLift and the OnLive Game Service are available at games.onlive.com/cloudlift including a free 7-day trial of CloudLift for new users. The new OnLive Android app can be downloaded free from the Google Play store.
