Slightly Mad Studios, the studio responsible for the Project Cars franchise, says it's working on a new console, called the Mad Box. The announcement was made on Twitter, with CEO Ian Bell saying that it will be 'the most powerful console ever built', with an e-mail sent to Variety further stating that it will be comparable to a 'very fast PC 2 years from now'.

Trine Enchanted Edition is a beautiful fantasy action platformer with a fairytale-like atmosphere, following the journey of three heroes – a Wizard, a Knight and a Thief – in a quest to save the kingdom from evil. The first Trine came to Switch a couple of months ago. Its two sequels are also planned for the near future, with the currently-in-development fourth title on the way. Additionally, just a couple of days ago, Trinelogy was rated for Switch by PEGI. While we technically don’t have confirmation on what this is, it’s likely a bundle of the first. “Trinelogy” Rated for Switch by Brandon Orselli on January 4, 2019 at 9:00 AM, EST We’ve learned Frozenbyte is possibly looking to re-release all three Trine games on Switch in a new package. ABOUT Trinelogy Gamers For everyone who loves the Trine series. Do you enjoy playing the Trine series? Maybe you're tired of playing solo and looking for a co-op partner?
Bell highlighted some aspects of the console such as support for 4K and VR games at 60 frames per second, neither of which are particularly impressive nowadays. Bell then confirmed that the console will run VR games at 120FPS, not 60, and that it will be compatible with most VR headsets on the market.
One interesting aspect of the console is that Slightly Mad Studios will apparently offer a full development engine that developers can use for free, which will open up the doors to anyone willing to create games for it. Of course, it remains to be seen who will be interested in doing that.
The company is still in very early talks with manufacturers and investors, but it says the console should arrive in around three years or so, and it should be a worldwide release. There's not a whole lot of details, as you would expect, with no games, specs, or even design being revealed yet. Bell did say that images of the console would be made public in the next few weeks, though.
Slightly Mad Studios has previously made some bold claims, specifically in regards to its Project Cars titles, and recent history shows that even companies with experience can botch a console release. An announcement this early into the development cycle should be taken with a handful of salt, as it's still possible that these plans will fall apart between now and the planned release date.
