All the intended Mad Box specs we have so far boil down to 4K resolution gaming, and - crucially - support for virtual reality headsets. He's made the repeated claim of a full engine to develop games for free and matched that with promises to never pay for exclusives or offer incentives to exclude other consoles. "It's the most powerful console ever built..."
The refresh rate is how many time per second the image you see is refreshed or replaced, with higher refresh rate speeds meaning smoother motion and lower risk of motion sickness - crucial in VR.
According to Bell, the Mad Box is still in pre-production, with Slightly Mad Studios now hashing out production and other logistics with multiple potential partners. That'll be the Madness engine. Bell also stated that the console would be priced "competitive with upcoming console prices", suggesting it'll be in line with the cost of a presumed incoming PS5 or Xbox Two, or whatever they end up being called.
"We think the industry is a little too much of a monopoly or a micro oligopoly", he further added. "We think competition is healthy and we have the required hardware contacts to be able to bring something epic to fruition based on our designs". Bell says "We have multiple investors already offering the required funding for us to see the product to completion, but it's still early days and we're looking at the best offers right now". Because, y'know, it seems doomed.
4K will be necessary for any next-gen console, with the push towards high graphical fidelity and games that can make the most of 4K television displays. With no exclusives and no established brand or brand loyalty, I can't imagine this doing well.
Don't expect Slightly Mad to go the crowdfunding route for this venture.
